Ah, typo - meant to say first BMW, not bike (riding 20+ years!)
Ah, typo - meant to say first BMW, not bike (riding 20+ years!). My bad.
Gotcha, I thought maybe I needed to give you the suicide prevention hotline for a minute.
It would be certifiable to have it as a first bike. Saying that, when I worked at a bike training centre, someone delivered a brand new GS to a trainee. Hmm.
1993 Suzuki RGV250 (2 stroke baby!)
1996 Honda CBR250RR (4 cylinder screamer - 18,000 rpm+)
2007 Honda CBR600RR (first big bore, now mostly a track hack)
2009 Honda CBR1000RR Repsol Fireblade (daily road bike)
I commute most days on the blade. Sometimes mix it up with the 600.
the RGV has been seized for a bit, the CBR250RR is currently in pieces being freshened up
Its a nice selection if varying power outputs and sports bike riding styles
