A couple of things. First off, the reason public school was mentioned was because, well, you can't spell, or you can't type. Second off, you brought up a bike that is way too much for a first bike, its not just a bicycle with an engine. Third, it doesn't matter how cheap your insurance is on an R1 most everything else will be cheapER.yeah sorry i havnt replyed i was busy.
I brought up the R1 because i was only curious about it.
second of all i go to the best public school in los angeles and i get straight As
third and finnaly i am poor and the only reason a bike like a R1 would be affordable as far as insurance goes is because i get really REALLY cheap (but good) insurance from AAA
also about the idoit comment it was directed toward the one guy that called me a stereotype 16 year old... im far from it
i hope this clears this argument up
Man... i loved the CL50 and CL100s my grandfather had, unfortanatly the 50 met a quick jolting end with a tree and the 100 had a just as bad end involving losing the oil cap on a trail about 10 miles from anything.Exactly. That's why you ROCK. The first moto I truly lusted-for was the original CBR1000 "Hurricane". Then the 600.
By contrast, my FIRST bike (some 4-odd years before the intro of either) was a '71 Honda CL100, I gave $100 (quite a sum for me!) for it back in '82 or '83 (mem'ry here).
At least I had a bit of experience on a bike, but even the 600 Hurricane would have been the Death of me at 16 or 17.
As I'm a bit older now (and vastly more-experienced, but I'm still no Rossi), I've come to have a greater appreciation for small-displacement "slower" motorcycles. Not that the thought of a full-throttle blast on a ZX-14 doesn't get my heart to racing.............
