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:

new bike
R1 as a first bike?'

I hope the information will prove useful.
Get a dirt bike so your body can learn and have muscle memory for throttle and counter body action when ass steps out and other scenarios . If you look at all the best riders and race car drivers most champions come a dirt or off road background .
