Hmmm. It didn't a week or so ago. 'course they've had trouble with the site for a while.

I don't know. What's a NASCAR dad?

Like guns, bikes don't get us into trouble-we do just fine at it ourselves. I'd say get yourself whatever you want- be sensible and you'll be fine.

Don't forget the Datona 600 as well
 
The only (almost) top drawer 600 supersport which still has good ergos.

you were the only person in this thread to make mention the speed four, so i just thought i'd ask.



if i had known that triumph was going to make the speed four, i might have not bought my tt600.

SV, you should go ahead and get it. Look for a used 99-02 model, I've seen em going for about $3500. Good luck.

What difference would it make what age he is? He's still a novice rider that would be in way over his head on a liter bike.

You obviously don't realize that the difference in power between a GSX-R1000, and FZ-1, a CB919, and a CBR929 is next to nothing. None of those would make good beginner bikes. Sure, the 929 wouldn't do anything unexpected, except loop out the first time the novice rider twisted the throttle back hard in first gear (which we ALL do at some point). The FZ-1 would be even worse still.



Smooth predictable power delivery is important, but so is the amount of power available. The most predictable liter bike in the world will still spin the tire and wheelie. This is the last thing a novice rider wants.
