I planning on working my way up to a gsxr 600 eventually.
I ve taken the MSF course but other than that i have little exp.
Thanks for the help
PS: wheres a good place to buy used bikes?
First off, where do you live?
Secondly, are you planning on using duel carriage ways, motorways or highways regularly?
For the UK I'd recommend a nice 125 (Honda) or a 250, in America a 250 or 600 is more suited thanks to the roads. It all depends on what you'll be using it for. A good 250 duel bike is always a nice starter due to being lightweight and the ability to go off road and hone your skills falling into muddy ditches.
Any way you go, used is always the better option for a first bike, you never know when you may drop it and scratch that nice new paintwork as well as the fact they hold their value when it's time to move up and get your second bike.
