When picking up a first bike, the first thing we look for is looks which isn’t wrong. Who doesn’t love a nice machine to call their own? Just one thing we should remember is taste changes and your first bike won’t probably be your dream bike. Maybe, maybe not, but we should pick a motorcycle that’s suits us in size, skill and not something that will leave a dent in our pocket. If you do get your dream bike, congrats! Take courses or practice as much as you can to lower your risk on the road and dropping your machine. Get seat time. This is my Yamaha r6. I trashed it, dropped it, practiced on it, dropped it some more and learned on it. She was good to me and taught me so much about riding. She wasn’t pretty, but she got the job done.
