Big Rider, New Bike....

By George Obradovich, Jun. 08, 2004
Hey... got an interesting question for everyone. Here we go.... I'm looking to buy my first sportbike. I'm 6'5" and about 230-240 lbs. My previous riding included a ton of dirtbikes.... and riding a 1981 Honda Goldwing (no luggage) during the summers when the weather was compatible for 4-5 years. I keep hearing that a 600 is the way to go.... but I was leaning towards the new 04 CBR1000RR. I have zip interest in doing the whole "Biker Boyz" stuff.... but am interested in getting in on some track days.... and will be going through some riding courses. It'll be a while before I buy, so I have plenty of time to scope things out. Any thoughts/recommendations?
