I'm 16 years old and I know the insurance is killer, but is their any easy way for me to get this bike at my age? Thanks people.
insurance, is their any cheaper way?The Chad said:find one and buy it, what problem are you having exactly, I don't quite understand.
So your telling me everyone starts with a Ninja 250 or something like that? Hey I don't want the bike because of its power but its looks. You ever seen a Ninja 250 or a 500 it looks like cheap material. Why can't they just make a Small bike with the good looks. Damn that's all I'm asking Suzuki to do.vstrombc said:excuse my parental tone but, unless you are from the hayden racing family, why would you want a gsxr600 ?
that bike and all it's competitors are WAY too much bike for the inexperienced. Do you realize what a top end of 150+ mph means - that is 220 feet per second - not much time left to react !!! Even if you have been on dirt bikes for a few years, you don't have enough road experience for a high powered bike. The 600's are deceivingly fast and that will get you in trouble or worse.
It's time the legislators start a graduated bike licensing system like they apparently have in the UK
Are you saying here that you feel that the sv650 is TOO much for a beginner rider? If that is what you are saying, can you please back that statement up with some facts?vstrombc said:Suzuki must be reading your mind, because the new GS500 has some styling cues from the Hayabusa. Even the SV650 would be a better choice than the GSXr600 but it still way too much bike for a beginner.
Suzuki Canada website shows both the SV650S and SV650.vstrombc said:However, the "S" version - the only one avail in Canada
No, most people start out on dirt bikes, standards, dual-sports, or small cruisers. Sport bikes by their nature are designed for those with some skills. And I don't mean the skills you'll think you have after 500 miles of riding.GSXR600Dream said:So your telling me everyone starts with a Ninja 250 or something like that?
