Best advice about bikes I ever got, which I'll pass along, is if it's your first bike, and you have no riding experience, don't get anything over 650cc. My first bike was a Suzuki SV650S and it was the perfect learners bike. Not so powerful that I was in danger of imminent death,but enough to keep it entertaining. The V-twin keeps you from having to wind it out in town, and it has a very nice chassis, so as you get more skilled, you can push it harder and still enjoy.

Or get a Harley. Hard to get in trouble on an overweight, underpowered cruiser.

And if it's available where you live, take the MSF course.

Happy hunting...
