you sound a lot like someone i knew that wanted to get into riding. never been on a bike before, but he wanted the biggest baddest fastest most powerful bike going. at the time, it was the bus. he wanted it just to be flashy, to be able to say he had "the best of the best". all he wanted really was to be head and shoulders above everyone else. had he bought the bike, he would have either binned it on the way home, or it would have sat in the garage beside his supercharged datsun roadster and collected dust.
