    You've got some interesting real life experience to add to the "pot" ... and I respect that even when we disagree ...

    I think the guilt is mine...due to an absence due to illness. On returning, this popped up as a new post (it shouldn't have), so I just replied.

    Nevertheless, it's interesting that the discussion, and my answer, is still just as applicable today (essentially my answer, since those bikes I mentioned didn't even exist back when the discussion started)!

    My first bike was a 2001 CBR600 F4i.. Second bike was a Ninja 250.. Third bike is a 2016 BMW S1000RR.. It CAN be done... But, I wish I spent more time on a smaller bike first.

    I learned a lot of bad techniques on the F4i.. and it has taken a lot of years to get around them.

    Yup, the fb effect has slowed many forums to a trickle.

    For the record, I started on a Rupp 3hp minibike. Full suspension/knobby tires and pull start!

    I think a look at what the fastest riders in the world start their racing career on is educational. Either 125cc 2 strokes or 250cc 4 strokes. They cannot count on power to win ... they must carry speed through the corners and develop "tactics". Braking is also paramount.

    When I started doing trackdays it was suggested I get an EX500. From there I moved up to a SV650. I spent my nickels redoing the suspension.
