        i started on a kawi ninja 600 and i can say after 4 years of riding i am just now getting to where i feel like i can pull everything out of what the 600 has. untill you really get experienced riding on the road i suggest a 250 or a 600 meanwhile you can save and really look at bikes and in a few years when you really wanna trade up you can get your dream bike what ever that may be

          My old man is missing his right leg because of some *uckwit who hit him 25 years ago. He had been riding for 20 years prior to that.
          So for arguments sake it matters not how experienced you are.

          If you are as confident and as comfortable on a bike as you say you are - get a 250 and ride the balls off of it without fear of it punishing any and all mistakes you make.

          Oh and get a license....

            About that... I bought a 2011 R1, but it's not a road bike, it's a track bike, I paid 7k for it, it was never written off, it was just bought and converted to a track bike, it's definitely not road legal and never will be, but that's just because it's been tracked and had track modifications, I just need to find out track rules and whether or not a 17 year old can ride on a track.. I went halves in a bike with my brother and we ended up with a hyosung gt650r, I'm yet to ride because I can't get my licence until 18, but now I have a track bike, a road bike and the next thing to look for is either a ute or a supra after all that I only have like 12k left, so it's going to be a reasonably cheap/High km car..

                  A 17 year old with over $19,000, wow. You must have done a few paper rounds. ;-) Take care on the streets, and save the really fast driving for the track.

                    Screw that. I just want to know where to find a 1 year old R1 with all the mods to convert to a track bike for $7k?....
                    19k brand new + track fairings, exhaust etc = -12k?

                    Bargin on the century. Or is a 2001 R1?

                      2011, firstly track bikes don't sell for that much, it's in pretty shitty condition as some of the other forum members have seen, and it still has road fairings, it's a shit track bike tbh haha

                      Always, and I've worked since I was 15, got my dad to invest everything that I earned in shares that he found appropriate., I have alot more than 19k, I also have a trust fund with over 15k in it I'm just budgeting it out a bit
