Hey all. I recently purchased a CBR125 as a starter bike. Now people will judge, but i don't regret getting because it provides me with cheap transportation around British Columbia, it was easy to pass my tests with and it will probably help make my insurance cheaper by allowing me motorcycle experience and not starting off with a 600.
Now i am already looking around a bit cause its something i do to get into a good mindset. I like goals. So i was wondering what would be my next best move. I know everyone here has a vast amount of knowledge and all of you ride different bikes and have owned others too. I am having a hard time deciding what i want to go with next. I really want a sport bike. I am torn between the CBR600 and the YZF r6. I also like the Zx6r. I would like to know which of the three is the better more recommended craft. Especially for someone who will be new to this much power. I have had a lot of dirt bikes. I've been driving bikes off road since i was twelve, but road bikes are too expensive to own in Quebec. Any sport bike costs 1200$ of registration fees a year. thats not even counting the 1500-3000$ it costs to insure a bike (depending on size, value, experience age etc)
So yeah Sport bikes were what i was looking for. In fact, i can't really say i have any preference in Brand. I've always wanted Yamaha products, especially crossing from the Motorcross world, they are the best of the top 4 japanese suitors. I am saying it that way, cause KTM is in a class of its own way up top there. So i was wondering if it was the same. I was told it is better performing race wise to the CBR, but the CBR is a better all around bike.
Also i am going out tomorrow to go see if i can test ride the new Ninja 400R. I like the idea of it, as it is pretty affordable also as a new bike, it looks amazing, will probably be a more suitable bike for all around (highway and city) and would be hella cheap on insurance.
The last thing i am thinking is Sport touring bikes like the FZ6r or CBF600
Anyways i know its a little hard to get where i am going with this, but im pretty new to motorcycles. I never bothered looking at them, since it was just gonna break my heart. It was easier for me to buy myself a Mustang GT and insure and register it to my name when i was 18 than to even try driving a bike a quarter of the value.
