Hi guys,

I'm Jamie and pretty new to the biking scene having just passed my test.
I am really after an r6. But I have heard that they aren't very good as first bikes.
Really looking for some guidance from people in the know.

Thanks guys.

Jamie

Hiya Jamie and !welcome in mate

Any bike is only as good as the person riding it

The R6 is a nice little fairly light bike and plenty fast enough :thumbsup
The best work is done in my garage

Thanks so much guys for your replies.
I am definitely going to start putting the feelers out for an r6!
They are such a good looking bike and I would like to think I am not a nob on a bike :roll:

My wife isn't too keen but I am sure that she will come around to the idea eventually.
You never know might even get her to ride pillion one day !crossed

Thanks again guys!
Looking forward to getting stuck in with everyone.

Maybe being told R6s are no good as first bikes is because they are pretty quick for a first bike.
Most people start on slower smaller bikes and work their way up.
If its an R6 you want you will love it, just take it easy till you get used to it.
