Thanx for everyone that gave me advice in my last post. I am 20 yrs old, 5'4 and weigh130lbs. I was interested in gettin a sports bike. I didnt mention which bikes i looked at. i was interested in gettin either a yamaha r6, cbr600, or a kawasaki ninja r6. I was planning on gettin a new bike. Dont really care that much about the speed of a bike as long as it handles good and has smooth shifting. I'm planning on taking the course. hopefully insurance wont be that high. Thanx again for the advice and look forward to seeing some of u on the streets!!!
