I know I should say something along the lines of: "What?? A Warrior?? As a FIRST Bike?!?!", but the truth of the matter is that it's a very docile bike and not scary as long as you realize that it's got gobs of torque and don't go ape$hit with the throttle right off the bat.
Otherwise, have fun and good luck with the recalls!
it's my first bike too. Everybody told me to stay away, but i didn't want to spend money on a bike i did not want. Only thing i would recommend is respect it's power and try not to show off too much until you are 120% confident.
I have ridden a couple of friends bikes so its not the first bike I've ridden, but I am still a beginner. I was a little nervous getting a large bike for my first but so far haven't had any issues with it. I am taking it easy and only riding in areas that have very little traffic.
