so i just got a 2001 honda 929rr for my first bike i am almost 16 and have been riding it around a lot and i dont see why people say its to big of a bike for first bike. i love it though. so i wanted to ask if you guys think its an ok first bike if im not doing stupid **** on it.

and it has 40,000 miles on it how long do you think it will last if i take good care of it.

thanks.

ps. dont sit here and talk **** about how im going to die on it and im a stupid kid for getting it please, i just want to learn about what you think and learn about the bike.

not going to talk on how you will die, but i seriously think you should get something smaller to keep you from getting hurt

its not only your ability to control your bike, its your ability to avoid dangers and also other wreckless drivers who will run you off the road with no problem

but all in all, its whatever you feel comfortable with


and my 93 900rr got 60k before i started hitting engine troubles

Feeling comfortable on the bike is great....however being 16, i doubt youve spent enough time in traffic to be able to read/predict other drivers.

Drive a car first on the road and take your 929 to the track.

well i have been driving the 929rr from the time i get home till the time i get tired which is at like 11 at night and i have been riding on the freeway a lot which i know im not supposed to but i love it and there really are some STUPID ASS drivers out there which i have learned in the short amount of time ive been riding this bike and i know it only takes one little thing to make you **** up so im being carful and still getting used to this bike lol I HATE how people say they ride dirt bikes so they can ride street bikes no problem I meen it helps but i have been dirtbiking my whole life and its NOTHING like riding on the streets what so ever its a whole different ball game.

So it sounds to me like you haven't taken MSF either, if you aren't supposed to be riding on the freeway (or at night, fyi).


I'd advise taking it as soon as you can.

Also, BARF is a good resource.

You Gonna Die BOY!!!

:eek:

:rotfl:
Anything can be dangerous if you don't respect it, but the margin for error is much smaller on a large displacement machine, especially since your so young, and you would have little to no car experience... be freakin' careful, and PLEASE... ditch the speakers... damn kid, thats got to go.
