This is a discussion on wrx or street bike within the Tri-State forums, part of the Regional Discussion category; I would not outgrow a Kawa 250. I first rode a motorbike in 1986, if that helps give some perspective....

    I think you should buy some grammar lessons.

    You can die from some STI's, should you not acquire the proper medication in a timely manner.

    The FZ6 is a good bike. Great DD.

    Why get an R6? Just go ahead and get yourself an R1 bro.

    Ooo just like the R6 but with an extra helping of road rash.

    I'm not sure if i agree with zax lol...
    Anything could kill me now a days. I understand motorcycles increase the risk of death, however I truly am responsible. I've done plenty of research on the fz6r, and I can control myself and temptations better than anyone I know. (I don't want to sound like every other kid though)
    The fz6r is a relatively slow motorcycle and is easy to control and keep slow. Sh*t happens in life, but I refuse to be scared of it. I just respect the motorcycle and the road.

    You're a kid. You don't know any better.

    My coworker / good friend has been riding motorcycles for 20 years. He's been out for two months (and is expected to miss another month or two) due to a freak accident caused by minor debris in the road where his bike went down in a corner.

    You don't have enough driving experience to be able to handle situations that occur on a regular basis. Spend 5-10 years in a car, get 100K+ miles under your belt, then consider a bike. Even then, you'll still drop the bike, but at least you'll be able to better anticipate situations that come up, and will have dealt with them being surrounded by a protective barrier rather than using your body as a learning curve...

    Don't listen to all the fuddy-duddies. Get the bike then save up for a WRX. Bikes are cheap and GREAT fun. Oh, and grammar is free, you should get some of that, too.

    I'm already at 60K miles in just two years. I do alot of travelling. Even my parents Mom and Dad have owned motorcycles for about 20+ years think i will be just as good as anyone else would be on a bike.

    Best of luck to you. I've lost enough friends on motorcycles to never own one; many of whom passed due to no fault of their own.

    Everyone thinks they're a great driver @ 17; no one is. That said, it's not so much that your driving ability is lacking, but that of the other idiots you share the road with.

    This is the wrong attitude. It's not speed that kills, it's stupidity, whether your own, or some other cager out there.

    This is the better attitude.

    I HIGHLY suggest you take one of the DMV offered courses or google "Rider's Education" courses for one in your area. You will come out of there after a weekend of classes and riding instruction with more safety knowledge for a motorcycle than you could imagine existed. Plus, you will also get your permit at that time (pending you pass the tests of course)...and it could count as a safety course towards your insurance premiums.

    I actually did take the classes. Besides killing my hips on a 250 rebel (6'4") lol, I really enjoyed it. I aced the written and got an even 100 on the riding portion. I then talked to the instructors, one was only about 37, the other was about 60. I asked them what they thought of the fz6r and even s.s. bikes. They told me that a 600 would be a great bike believe it or not. The only thing they repeated was just to always control myself. They then proceed to shake my hand and wished me the best of luck with getting the bike. Both of them were very nice and it made my learning more enjoyable.

    My dad instilled it into my head to respect the road and the idiots on it just as i would the ocean. The ocean can be just as unforgiving.
