    Ok I couldn't hold it in anymore: that's all I can stands I can't stands no more! This whole diatribe is full of shit. Not that it didn't happen but the author's conclusions are just bullshit. Advice like this is what gets people hurt because they are in over their head

    Not directly but you did say this


    "This" being to not start off on a supersport... If you want to get semantic, sure, the article as about 600s and not 1000s but both are pretty stupid bikes to start on

    You also played the whole "it worked out fine for me" card

    And now you are writing essays to backpedal

    Bottom line, someone w/no experience on a motorcycle has no business on a 600/1000. A couple of months on a 250-500 won't kill you and taking your time to actually learn how to ride instead of just surviving is a good thing

    Their gear looks good, but when you try to order they only have 3 or 4 sizes of everything, at the more extreme ends of the spectrum (very large, very small). That and the 30% or so discount on everything gives the impression they're going under and selling off old stock. Looks to be a good buy if they have your size.

    Why denim on the bike and not just leathers? Don't want to change when you get somewhere or walk around in bike leather?
