need advise please
Okay so I need some serious advice from anyone willing to offer any. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Let me start by giving some background information about me. I am a 19 year old male. I would consider myself a responsible and safe driver. I have been driving since I first got my license at age 16. I have a clean driving record, no blemishes at all. I have taken the driver training course and successfully completed it (although it was too easy). I always use defensive driving when I am on any road which is why I have avoided so many situations that could have lead to accidents. I grew up on a farm where I did nothing but drive any motorized vehicle. So since the age of 3 I have been driving. I have driven go karts, dirtbikes, and four wheelers. I got my first dirtbike when I was 5 or so, a 50cc dirtbike. I rode in day in and day out. As I got older I upgraded my bikes. I have owned and ridden 125cc-250cc dirtbikes ranging from 4-strokes to 2-strokes. Also, I raced in a few different divisions as a kid. So all in all I would say I have a lot of experience riding on dirtbikes. I know that riding on dirtbikes are not the same as riding a motorcycle on the street. But I would still consider myself fairly experienced to ride a motorcycle.
Now to my question. I currently own a 2005 ninja 250. This is my very first street bike. I have about 3mo riding on the road with it. I have read many forums and decided to take the safest and smartest way into sport bike riding. I decided to get a ninja 250 and learn on it for awhile. I wanted to get acclimated to the road on a motorcycle. I feel 100% comfortable on it. The power is minimal and the controls are smooth and easy. It really is a great starter bike. I plan on riding for another 3mo but after then I plan on upgrading my bike. I am considering the options: 650r vs zx6r. I have read all the facts and watched many different videos on both. I know the differences in the bikes and the purpose of each bike. I am trying to decide which would be a better bike for me. I only ride for pleasure. It wont be my daily commute. I have three different cars for that purpose. It will be purely for fun and enjoyment. I know the zx6r is going to be way more powerful and the 650r is an easier commuter with better gas mileage. Neither I am too worried about due the frequency of use will be low. I just donít know which bike would be better for me. I love the looks of both. Either one I purchase will be an 09 model. Money is not the issue. I feel like I should get the 650r for the skill/ease/smart decision. But I really would like a zx6r. If I get the 650r then I know eventually I will get the zx6r later down the road. I feel like the 650r will be fun and a lot better than the 250 but I am worried if I get the zx6r it might be too much for me to handle. I feel that eventually I could get used to it but it would take awhile. I would never be doing anything stupid with either. I am a safe driver and I am trying to stay alive. I feel 100% comfortable with 650r upgrade but I still want to consider the zx6r. I donít want it to be overwhelming. I am trying to make the best/smartest decision. Do you think I should get the 650r or zx6r? Which would be the better choice? Pros and cons?
Thankyou so much!
