Okay, so, I'm a noob to riding, and I'm trying to do everything the don't-get-killed way. I've already got my first bike, an '83 Yamaha XJ650 Maxim, which is nicely forgiving, and has plenty of poop. As much as I love it, though, it doesn't satisfy my itch for a 600cc or bigger supersport.
I know they're not for "beginners"... the question is, when IS it okay to move up?
