In most cases, very true.
In a few circumstances, a little hand wringing is good:
4'8" tall and 90 lbs is one.......
and if you are strongly attracted to something like a Vmax is another.

Alright so after reading your comments it looks like a Ninja 250 would be a good starter bike, so I'll look into that, and just get the NH 750 after I'm done with the Ninja or whatever bike I decide to start out with.

Thanks guys for helping me make up my mind.

Great bike! You could always go out and borrow Sachi's CB-1.

I started off on my mom's (yep that's right) 1985 Virago 550cc because she'd moved on to Harleys ... Anyhow, great bike. Super easy to manuver and had plenty of power for a beginner. Only ever had 2 problems with it: 1) Dropped it after popping the clutch during a slow turn on gravel. Only minor scratches in the chrome. 2) RAV4 backed into it in a parking lot. The owner paid for the repairs.

All-in-all very happy with that one. Got it for free, rode the hell out of it and sold it for $1,500 in 1998.
