First off I would like to say I have ABSOLUTELY no Riding experience on a motorcycle. I've done a whole bunch of research on bikes at this point and it's come down to 3 bikes. The FZ07, NINJA 650, and the FZ10. I like the 650 and the FZ07 but I've been heavily attracted to the FZ10. I know it's a 1000cc which is extreme overkill for a newbie just starting out but personally I've fallen in love with the FZ10. The look, sound, it's pretty much the bike I've always dreamt of having. Thoughts on the FZ 10 being my first bike? I'm having my first MSF course next weekend and from there I plan on purchasing my motorcycle now that I've acquired all of my gear. I don't plan on going anywhere near the streets until I'm confident I can drive well enough to be on the road with cars.
