I worked out a budget of 7500 to get my first bike. It for sure has to be a sport bike, I’m thinking something along the lines of an R1. All my friends are telling me to start out with something small like a 600 but I feel that it’s going to be way to small for me as I’m a big guy 5’10 and 240. If the bike experts can help me out that would be great looking for something powerful enough to push me around and easy (cheap) to maintain. Not planning to use it as a dd just as a weekend worrier. Looking forward to the input.
