It seems a class of bikes left out of the "fist bike" category are bikes like the ZZR600 or FZR600. They really should be classified as "value 600's" or something of the sort. If you like the fully faired street bike look, want to be able to tour, ride twisties, and cruz around town all at a good price these bikes are hard to beat. The more I read about them the more impressed I am with them. In the real world these might be some of the best do-it-all street bikes out there.
