Definitely wait til you take the MSF course. Seeing another post of yours it would seem your in NC to. Where abouts? I took the Riders Edge course at Ray Price HD. They used the Buel Blast for the course. It’s a 500cc single piston pumper. The delivery on those bikes were rather mild but enough to where the unwary could get into trouble quckly.
Let the MSF bikes help you better judge what you might be prepared for.
For someone getting into motorcycle riding ( I refuse to call it a sport) for the first time I will always tell you … Sit on many and let YOUR honesty decide what bike suits your comfort. NOT your EGO or your FRIENDS.
Other then that ….welcome!
