    A Busa is a LOT of Motorcycle for a newbie! Might be better if you started out on a 600cc or so bike.

    Frankly, I'd start out with something easy, cheap and disposable if you drop it or don't like street riding.


    An older Honda, 450 or smaller. You know, a $500 dollar special...


    I've seen to many buy to much street bike to start....And if your just starting on the street, the odds are good you will drop it, sooner or later...


    Just my .02...


    Good luck whatever you do,

    $500 I'm giving away a 400 over on stripbike LoL ,,,, seriously , everything you learn in the dirt is a lifesaver on the street ,, jumping a curb ,, gravel in a turn ETC. ,,, it all relates to dirt ,,, the lack of traction environment

    Jack is absolutly right.....dirt riding is all about balance and lack of traction...

    If you get a 'busa, get an adequate life insurance policyso that anyone you leave behind can survive without your support & won't go in debt just paying offany medical bills & funeral/burial arrangements. Disability insurance would be a good idea also.


    Starting on a small, cheap, and naked bike& working up has worked for me.Edited by: tt6pam
