I appreciate the input. After a bit more reading I’m learning the CBR is a bad beginners bike although I’ve had some recommend it to me. To be clear they were suggesting the F NOT the RR. Either way. The GS500 seems to be the one that stands out as the best beginner friendly bike. I know that the Ninja 250 is the unanimous decision as the best beginner bike although I’ve heard it isn’t the best if you plan on being on the freeway at some point and as a commuter I do plan to be on the highway quite a bit. Any other input is appreciated but great work so far.
