This Article/thread is an older item that has spent some time in the Articles area. I've deleted the stuff that didn't belong and present it here for the new rider community. It's still open if anyone with thoughts wants to update it as the first 3 pages are over two years old now. Be warned though that silly stuff will be deleted to keep the intent and flow pertinent.
OK folks. I'm going to put you all to work. This is your chance to see your name in the Articles forum. The basic "what bike do I buy" has been done to death but each one seems to have it's own special curve that makes it less than suitable for a basic article. I'ts time for you all to offer your complete opinion once and for all on the time honored classic question....
"Hi my name is Squidly Skruluze and I'm want to buy my very first bike. Do you think I'll have enough power if I get a GSXR 1000? Oh, and I fall down a lot when I ride a bicycle. But this won't be a problem 'cause my good riding buddies tell me I can just gas it when I get into trouble.....".
Se let's tell Squidly what our thoughts are on the right choice for a beginner bike. I want it all. The 250 faithful. The Ninja 500 owners group. The 600 believers. And that rare group of plastic surgery survivors that say a liter scoot is safe. Old or new. Plastic or no. Lets have it.
