The first available MRC that I can take is in April so I have some time to figure this out. My original plan was to take the course and then pick up a V-star 250 to start with. After a year I was planning on getting the Suzuki S-40 cuz I really like it. I have recently sat on the 250 and it is too small. It will probably be just right for the class but not for riding. Would the S-40 be too much bike for a complete beginner that has never ridden a bike? I am 5'10 and 205 pounds.
