Hi all.

This thread is for those who ask the eternal question - "How about R1 as my first bike?".
The question comes in several variations, and I tried to find the relevant threads to answer these variations of the question.

This is a collection of the best threads on the subject, presenting different opinions. I hope it'll save a lot of time and unnecessary questions.

Interesting discussions:
Who started out on an r1
new bike
R1 as a first bike?'

If you're thinking about buying an R1 and have no prior experience with bikes, these threads are for you to read carefully:

I'm going to get a 04 R1 for my first bike that i can actually take on the street!

If you're thinking about buying an R1 and have some dirt/other background, these threads might answer your questions:

My first R1 (first Liter Bike)

I hope the information will prove useful.

This is why insurance rates are high. Rich kids have daddy go buy them the latest and greatest for their first bike and whammo! faster than wacko jacko can hit on a 10 year old they bin it. I think the US should do what England does, make people work their way up to a liter bike. I think its like 250 cc they have to ride for year, then 600, etc. Would help us out!

SQUIDS buy big bikes wif daddy's $$$$ so they can kill em selves faster than buying drugs... I say let it happen, let the chips fall where they may.

About time we had a sticky for this question
:iamwithst

Let's just hope all adhere. But you know people will be hard headed and get what they want anyhow. Sooo many times I see someone get a bike they can't handle, get their @** whipped by it (a lot of times hurt really bad) and then say "I'm never getting on a motorcycle again"! :2bitchsla Makes you want to choke'm

R1= $10,500

Permit/ licence/ Insurance Fees = +/- $500

Proving Darwin's therory of evolution, PRICELESS

:iamwithst If they would've started on a smaller bike, they might've progressed to bigger and better and stayed with it.
