I think you mean uneducable or ineducable. Just because someone buys a bike other than a 750 doesn't mean that they automatically don't know anything about riding, don't want to learn anything about riding, etc. While there are many riders like this I don't believe it's the majority. Also, one can buy a fittingly sized bike and handle it / learn how to handle it quite well.
Now it's all Americans that don't know how to ride well? And all Americans like guns but can't shoot well? I assume that you don't live in America. How much training have you had with your bike and how many miles a year do you ride? Just curious.
Your responses indicate a radical, almost willfull misreading of the text. In short, I'm acknowledging that while it's possible for people to figure out how to ride a motorcycle with no training on a poorly-chosen bike, it's not the best way to learn. This is not a radical concept - it applies to pretty much all walks of life; playing guitar, computer programming, poetry, fighting, neurosurgery. In the end, the person pursuing any endeavor has to decide whether they want to do the best they can or just get by - really learn to play, or just learn the opening riff to "Smoke On The Water." I'm of the view that a new rider's main focus should be on learning to ride well, with strong grounding in the fundamentals of riding technique, safety practices, and bike maintenance. Then again, I'm also of the opinion people playing intruments should be able to read music and people writing novels should know sentence structure and the rules of grammar.
You don't agree? I've got great news - you don't have to! The hope is that when new riders go looking for viewpoints on a first bike, they see various ones from experienced riders and decide what will work for them. You're more than welcome to state your views on the topic, as I did, and let them stand. No need to clutter the thread with anecdotes about how cousin Billy-Bob learned on a Ducati 916 when he was 12 and went on to when the Isle of Man TT.
New male riders love to tell themselves (and anyone who can listen) that they will control themselves and will respect the power., The simple fact of the matter is that riders who start out on small bikes and gradually move up the ladder (or even stay on their smaller displacement bikes) end up being better riders than those riders that start out on larger displacement bikes. How can you master learning to ride when the vehicle scares you half to death? You can't.
I remember coming across a guy who said he used to ride and his first bike was a CBR1000 because his buddies said anything smaller was for girls. The guy proudly told me he had never even hit 6th gear because he was too frightened. What happened to the bike? He crashed it of course.
Another guy I know had ridden a 125cc scooter for 2 years or so but after seeing people like me riding decided to get a bike. I tried to help him out but he kept getting advice from scores of well meaning idiots. gsxr750 is a good beginner bike. Anything under 1000 cc is for girls, etc. The guy ended up getting a Hyabusa and I just prayed I wouldn't have to attend his funeral. Luckily his 2 crashes were minor and he has since sworn off riding forever.
