I'd say get a Honda Rebel first, then when you grow up a bit you can get a real bike like the Warrior. HAHAHAHA!! [/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
JUST KIDDING! [/emoticons/emotion-4.gif]
Seriously...If you are looking at getting a bike then definitely get what you can afford, but be sure that you will be happy with what you get too. I've seen a lot of my friends just settle for this bike or that bike for whatever reason and in the long run they ended up hating it. Of course, then the bike ended up sitting in the garage more than it did cruising the roadways. Do your homework and research before you make a quick or poor decision...Look at ALL your options! Heck! It took me 2-1/2 years before I finally decided that the Warrior was the bike for me. And let me tell I looked at just about every bike that is out there, before I finally did decide on the Warrior.
Of course, I'm glad I did decide on the Warrior and haven't regretted it since I got her. I love my bike!![/emoticons/emotion-2.gif] In my opinion, you can't beat it![^]
I'm an ex-sport biker myself and I know all about the cost of insurance for the so-called "crotch-rockets". Been there, done that...[/emoticons/emotion-6.gif] Unfortunately I learned the hard way which resulted in having to sell my bike because, I couldn't resist the need for speed. Not saying that the Warrior is a slow bike, either...But with the Warrior you'll want to keep it at a slower pace so ALL the others will be able to envy the look of the Warrior, and just how cool you look on it.[8D]
Anyway...It's up to you and what you want or are looking for...Like I said do your homework and research all your options. You'll be truly more happy with something that you knew you wanted, then with thing that you just settled for.
Best of luck! And remember to ride safe!!
