Ok fellas and ladys, I have just newly discovered this wonderful place of knowledge while trying to drown my sorrows of not having a warrior and thought i would run this question by for some answers. I have never riden a street bike before and have though several times of buying one. When I was in highschool I drooled over an R1 and after that the warrior came out and have been looking at it since! Now that I can afford to take this leap I was wondering if I could get some advice about being a newby to the street bike world. I am 6ft1 and 200lbs pretty well balanced and was wondering if I could swing a warrior as my first bike without becoming someones hood ornament. The power im not afraid of abusing until ready. What I am afraid of is balance issues and being able to ride. Is the warrior going to be balanced enough for me? Thanks for any input.
