I gotta find me a cheap beat up 1 piece. Wife is on board with me doing track days since it will make me "safer and more comfortable on the streets".

if you are going to take steps become a good rider (classes, books, trackdays), i dont see why not.

A big part of what I consider a good first bike for somebody is their reasons for getting into motorcycles to begin with.

It's a dealer, they're always expensive, you have to talk them down.

Troof. I watched a video where he stalled his bike during a practice run and never realized how short he was until I saw he was tiptoeing his bike.

I'm 5'7" and I have gotten comfortable with the taller bikes except putting the kickstand dowb
The placement on the 250 is completely different.

And now I want an SV for the track... Damn you UglyDuck.

If someone came at me with a helmet on I'd grab them by the chin of the helmet and tear their head towards the floor. Try countering that unexpectedly. If you can get control of the chin of the helmet you can pretty much do whatever you want to them.

Uh...most people are going to expect your hands to go towards their face whether or not they're wearing a helmet. Faces are vulnerable and you will protect it instinctually, also good luck getting a solid grip on a helmet with the shield closed, pretty easy to whip that thing up right into your face. If you have an opportunity to grab the chin of their helmet, just punch them in the throat...bam, fight over. Alternatively don't be a douchebag and you won't get into a fight in the first place.

I'm getting into riding but I don't know whats a good cc to start with? My brother has a shiver 750. I was looking at CBR's and aprillia rs(v)'s. Are 125's /250's even worth it? Even with a passenger? I can get either make for pretty cheap.
