Thumbs down Any advice to new riders

Does anyone have any advice for new riders that haven't ridden a bike before? Is an R6 good for a beginner? or is that too much bike?

Not to dismiss your question, but please read the thread at the top of the forum that is stickied about "My first bike". There is a search that will have TONS of threads for you to read our input on starter bikes.

Re: Any advice to new riders

R6 is fine for a begginer. I mean we all know your gonna get one anyways. I didnt listen to anyone either and im glad I didnt. I couldnt see myself in any other bike. Im not saying its the best begginer bike you can get but youll be fine. Just get used though. Its a lot easier to accept the fact you dropped it if its used.
