I guess I should tell you more about myself then. I know this doesn't make me not a beginner but I got my license about a year ago with the ninja 300 in mind when it just came out. It looked so sexy to me I had to have it even though some people were telling me that I would get bored of it's power.
I thought the 250 would be way too small and the 300 would be a great starter bike.
I couldn't get the financing though because I haven't built up a good enough credit score yet. Now a year later, and a year of thinking about it in the back of my mind now and then I have decided that I would rather go for something more powerful because I know myself and I know that I will not drive dangerously.
As you have seen in this thread, there are people who have started out on the zx6r. They are fine.
I am not blowing you all off who are telling me I should consider a less powerful bike. I understand where you are coming from. I am new and should learn on something more safe.
But you don't know me like I do, obviously haha. I know I'll drive safe. It's a risk but I think I will be fine.
So please, try to leave that topic alone. I'm thankful for you all trying to keep me safe. I'll be ok. And if not, it's my fault. Not yours.
