Anyone have a yamaha Yzf-r
I was looking at those. I think a motorcycle would be fun.. I can get my motorcycle license when im 16...
I could start putting like 5% of all my savings to a bike
are these yamahas good bikes?
what are good bikes in general?
I don't see myself driving like a cruiser or anything like that but more like a sports bike....
any tips,advice, recommendations?

so how old are you?
maybe its just me, but I dont think a motorcycle is a best choice for a young, inexperienced person. Especially not a crotch rocket.
the smartest thing I ever did for myself was NOT buy a bike.

Do not start on a supersport, you will kill yourself. You will learn far more about the geometry of bikes and how to ride if you get something like a ninja 250/500 or possibly an SV650 (which are still little rockets). After a year or 2 then you can upgrade to a 600/750. Liter bikes are overkill. At my last track day I was lapping guys on 1000's and I was on my 600.

well, I mean
to get it straight..
I have ridden many bikes before.
I've raced dirt bikes for many years, and just stopped recently.
I know there different, but my point is I know how to ride...

You have no idea how powerful SS bikes are and how quickly you can kill yourself or get killed by cagers not paying attention.

The best thing you can do is take a riding class...they will teach you how to stay alive while riding with the cagers. The MSF class is very good, I took the class years ago and I still use the techniques they taught me.

Yea, a street bike can't be compared to a dirt bike. Not even close.
Dirt bike is a kiddy bike compared to a 600cc or liter superbike. My buddy races them and is semi pro. He told me once the 600cc is crazy, liter bike is just stupid fast. Both though, very dangerous.
