My freind who is currently taking his riders course through BC Safety Council
is planning on buying a 99 TLR 1000. the purchase will go through tomorrow...
I have some worries as to what displacement he should be buying as this will be his first bike. As a freind I would prefer he goes with something a little smaller till he gets the full understanding of countersteering effects, proper tire pressure for different road conditions, weight distribution with regards to setting up your shocks, setting your bike up for your personal riding style and height etc etc etc.
He stands about 5'9 and weighs about 150lbs. Again he is currently in a motorcycle course, he's not done for another couple of weeks.
I'm looking for your feedback here, I may be over-reacting but some honest opinions with theory and experience behind those opinions would be greatly appreciated.
