The GS500 is a good choice, but I imagine you want the 100+ horsepower sort.



If you do get a fully faired bike I suggest you take the fairing off for the first few months. At least until you are sure you won't tip it over in parking lots or toss it down the road.

I am in Burbank California and it is a pristine 1970 CL350 in tangerene orange with 8000k on the clock. Looks/runs like new. I will let it go to a fellow MOron for real cheap, like $900.00 bucks. Injury forces sale.



My guess is you wanted the CB750F. Right?

Another choice: any year FZR600. The older the better. Parts are plentiful and cheap on eBay.



You're kidding about size, right? I am 6' and 200 lbs. I feel like a ball-turret gunner on most sportbikes. You should be able to fit on just about anything.



You're not really considering a NEW bike, are you?

What assclown moderated your advice, which is good advice, as "incorrect"?



Stop being a p*ssy and say instead of being a dumb f*ck.

I saw the greatest posting on Cycle Trader.



"Brand New SV650, slight damage, dropped once. $4200. 75 miles."



Someone should have taken a class, you think?

Default Just a guess

It may be "he who has not renewed"



I ran across a few random moderations that fit the profile.

Class? Training? Surely you jest! Teenagers KNOW EVERYTHING! How could one ever hold his head up amongst his peers unless he made to stupidest choice possible?

I'd also go with a GS500, I've been looking at them for my daughter who is about your size and she feels pretty comfortable on it.



If you want a good standard non sportbike then the new Bonnevilles are good handleing, fairly low and well balanced. And you have the cool factor of riding a legend.
