What’s up everyone! Just wanted to do a quick intro. 41 year old currently living in Massachusetts. Always wanted a bike when I was younger and planned to have one by the age of 19. Things got in the way and luckily they did cause I’m sure I wouldn’t have made it with a bike in my younger years. Anyway rode my cousin’s cbr250 a couple of times over the summer and now I’ve been bitten by the bug again. Got my permit and planning on taking the MSF course in a couple of weeks. Just doing research at the moment but if I see a crazy bargain over the winter I want to be able to jump on it. I just have the classic dilemma of 600cc bike or something smaller. I was originally planning to get a 300 or 400 but all my friends continue to try to convince to at least get a 600(actually higher than that) but I wouldn’t dare go any higher than a 600. I can understand there argument and worse case scenario I can just borrow my cousin’s 250 for a month and then ease into a 600. I’m a father of 2 so I definitely would not be a risky rider trying to push the limits by any means but interested in any and every opinion. Thanks everyone!
