I second that. Absolutely.Lamonster said:Congrats Bro. ;D Make sure you take a riders safety course, it could keep you alive.
I'm glad you said it 'cause it's true. I started to say it but backed off, not wanting to sound like a beginner site, which recommends a 250 or 650 to learn on. A complete beginner on a m109 is troubling. It is not impossible to start on this bike, but the possibility of failure runs high.Wanted said:It's great that you're about to take up such a fun and rewarding activity.
The M109R is surely an exquisite piece of machinery. And while I'm sure there's no way I can convince you not to buy one, I wish I could.
I hate to piss on your Wheaties, but this is just not a bike that belongs in the hands of a beginner. There, I said it.
I teach the MSF here in Illinois. Basically, it qualifies you to practice in a parking lot on your own. That's about it.
I hope there is some way you might consider starting out on a cheap, used, smaller bike -- and maybe putting off that M109R for a year. Or, at the very least, a few months.
:evil: :evil: :evil: Buy it :evil: :evil: :evil:Seabee68 said:How's it going guys ? i appreciate all you guy's concern about me jumping on the M109R as my first bike but don't be troubled ,Ive been riding bikes since i was 18 just nothing this big plus this would be the first bike I've actually owned. My dad used to have an oL 1974 Honda CB450 which i rode for a few years .The biggest Ive ever ridden was a Honda F2 600 for about 7 month while my roomate was on deployment and thank god never laid it down. I know this is nothing compare to this bike as far as power ,handling and riding experience most of you have, but I'm confident in my abilities and know that if i take it slow while i get familiarized with it ill be OK. ;D.
P.S. You guys have till june 16th to try and talk me out of buying it jejejejeje ;D.
