no. i would start with something smaller if this is your first bike. my suggestion would be to take the MSF course and decide if getting a bike is really what you want to do. then look at something like a used kawi 250. they hold their value and after a little while on it, you could sell it and move up to a 600.

I started on a 600.
I'm good. I know several did.
Its all about how well you have your head screwed on man.
Bikes don't hurt people, the riders throttle hand does.

600rr was my 1st bike.
Rode a handfull of times before, did the msf, then bought a bike a year later. Put about 11k miles on it in 1 year. Wrecked, got a 1000rr, because the deal was too good to pass, already put 15k miles on it in 1 year.

Getting tired of the streets, contemplating making it 100% track, and giving up street riding, but, I gotta admit, moving thru traffic at rush hour is priceless.

Very true. I also started on a 600, but without knowing the person I tend to suggest the 250.



Too warm for a jacket, too warm to ride...
