I have been riding dirtbikes for a while and about 6-8 months ago i bought a cbr 600 and started riding on the street. now i have sold it and im going to buy a 636. my friend that i rode dirtbikes with wants to enter a group buy in with some guys, but everyone is telling him its to much bike for his first streetbike. I started thinking about it and i wish i would have spent the money i spent on the honda on a down payment on a new bike and not have waisted my time with the honda in the first place. with all the used race parts and used parts on e-bay if he drops it, most likely it will be at slow enough speeds to make it ridable for a decent price. I wanted to get some oppinions on this, cause i think he would be fine on it, but maybe im blinded by my lack of seat time. thanx in advance for the insight.
