Hi everyone! This is my first post. I'm 5'10" and 165lbs...I know the concept of how to shift gears on a bike and all that but have never actually ridden before and at the motorcycle shop today, the sales guy told me that either the ZZR600 or Katana 600 are good starter bikes for a guy like myself. Me being a Kawasaki fan, I felt more at home sitting on the ZZR. I still have a feeling that those might be too much bike for me. He said I should stay away from the common Ninja 500 that everyone buys as a first bike cuz I will outgrow it too fast. So what do you guys think? Being the newbie of newbies, I'm open to any and all opinions/suggestions.
