What kind of bike do I get?
I'm a beginner rider. No previous experience to my BRC. I was told I caught on really fast though and improved more than some who had been riding for a couple years. I'm looking at different types of bikes. I haven't got a lot of money to spend and I want one that I will like the look of and can learn on. I tend to like the look of sportbikes or naked bikes. I don't want to kill myself though. I plan to take whatever bike I get to a parking lot and practice A LOT!
I've read some places that a 250 can be too small, that you outgrow it too fast and it's not good on the highway. However, I don't want something huge either that will overpower me.
What's a good middle ground? Any suggestions for a sporty bike that's okay for a beginner?
