Hey guys I've been a lurker here for a bit and decided I would ask for some help since I'm looking to buy my first bike in the next couple of months. Little background, I'm 21, I'm 6ft tall, weigh 155lbs, and I have ridden a minibike since I was 8 and then dirtbikes since I was 12. I have also ridden a Vulcan 500 around a bit so I'm not new to riding just never bought a bike. I want a bike that won't kill me when I first buy it but that I also won't outgrow in 6 months.
I have narrowed my search down to the Fz6, Er-6n, and Gladius (Sv650). Truth is I would love to have a ninja500 but they are too damn ugly and I don't wanna wait till 2010 to see if its finally redesigned. What do you guys think? Am I looking at some good bikes or is there one that I'm missing? I don't want a sporkbike I want something that sets upright similar to a dirtbike and has a decent insurance rate. Thanks for your help.
