I've been riding for 20 years, young man, and the longer I ride the smaller my bikes get. I've owned liter bikes and now . . . well, the last one I bought was a 400. I have more fun with that one than anything. And it still has more than enough power to get me in trouble.

It's your balls that want that 600 sportbike. Not anything with the power to reason. Are you gonna listen to your balls or are you going to think first?

True enough. From 350cc two stroke, to 500cc-550cc twins, then up to a straight four liter bikes and finally to a 650 twin and love it. Just the right amount of power, weight and range for me. Maybe not small, but certainly smaller.

Is this even a real post? It sounds like someone trolling.

If he is a troll, it's a far too common reality. *sigh*

Listen to those not flicking you sh!t here, and get either a used standard or dual sport in the 500-600 cc range, or get a new SV650 or Ninja 650r. They're still way faster than anything you've ever experienced, will top out way faster than you ought to be going on the street, and let's face it; you will drop the bike at some terrible time. It's happened to all of us. And when you do, it's nice to shrug off a broken turn signal rather than looking at all that ruined plastic. If you ride for 2 years or 10K miles and still really want a new sport bike, go for it. By then you'll be experienced enough to have that make sense.
