    It's good info. My first sportbike & first street bike was a Ninja EX500. Great little bike!!

    I had a CB450 nighthawk for my first bike. My college roomate "outgrew" it in a year, so I bought it when he went to a 700.

    Couldn't agree more, even though I did it wrong according to the article (started on a CBR F3 & jumped up to my first R1 within my first year of riding). I did my fair share of stupid things and had many close calls. I always wore my gear though (NOT saying this made it OK), just lucky and glad to be here to warn people not to do the same.
