Just trying to get a feel for what people ACTUALLY start on. I seem to hear a lot of start small talk, but then I hear of people starting on litre bikes too.
my first street bike was a 96 zx-6r. my first "motorbike" was a 1980's xr100, many moons ago.
1994 Yahama XJ 600 "Seca II". I got it and rode it for almost 2 years then I got the CBR. Great starter bike, myself and 2 brothers and a few friends first got started on this bike. Just enough power to keep you going, but nothing crazy to really worry about (if that makes sense). Good riding position, and handled pretty good ( I think someone races with one iirc Workerant maybe :confused )
hehe, my brother and I were compairing bike totals the other day. My total in ~5 years of riding : 13quackPOT said:90cc's of raw power was my first street bike. I should be the poster child for starting small and working your way up!
