Hi Gang-

Just decided to join up, after really getting interested in the sport bike world. Until now, I've been all about four wheel performance, but I'd like to make the change.

Never rode before, but am really looking forward getting into sport bikes.

Not sure what I'm really looking for in a bike. I'm 5'11, 180lbs - probably a 600 or 650 of some sort. I'm not looking to ride balls out everywhere I go, but would like a decent bike that I can learn and grow on, mainly doing cruises around New England with my buddies.

I look forward to learning more on the forums!

You may also want to consider a used bike as your first bike, a used SV650 would be a good choice. If you want something a bit more sporty, then try to find a used Honda CBR600F4i. Hondas are usually the easiest bikes to learn on and to ride.
