I'll let him chime in for that story, there's a pretty good thread about it over on FRF, maybe he'll copy it over or give you a summary.

Well, finally managed to finish the shed I was building for my sled and quad. With all the overtime I've been working it took me a little longer than I wanted. But she's done, shingled, etc.

So I finally have my toys at home. No more driving to my brothers place when I wanna ride.

Nice! It'll be good to be able to just go outside and ride. I bet you'll find yourself riding even more, since you don't have to go anywhere to get your machines

I sure will. Especially in winter. Few storms last year would have been awesome sledding. But I also would have had to shovel my driveway, as well as m brothers. (3+ feet of drifted packed snow, not fun to shovel)

So this will be so much nicer.
Same goes for the quad. Get home, throw on my helmet and go. No more 5 minute drive to my brothers, find out I forgot his keys, back home, and back out haha. Done that a few times.


I built the shed out of pallets from work, and leftover 2x8's from our house. So really the only cost was treated plywood for the floor, and shingles. Think we spent under $200 total. Not bad.

I won't be like all the other people out there who freak out and call you an idiot for wanting a 600 for a first bike but I will say this....

If you get a 600cc supersport such as an R6, CBR, or GSX-R, you will have to be VERY careful. Even just being a 600 they are extremely fast. A good friend who has been riding for years just wrecked his CBR after forgetting just how quick they are. He grabbed too much throttle without thinking and wheelied right over backwards.

I started on a 500. Great to learn on, but it did get old fast. With that said, it is definitely possible to learn on a 600 supersport. They are perfectly manageable and you won't get sick of them either. But they will bite your head off in a heartbeat if you at any point don't give them the respect they deserve.

Yeah, my other thought was getting the new Ninja 300, but I don't really want to learn on it, then sell it because I know I will get tired of a 300 very quickly.

Its not like it would be boring, they just aren't fast. I'm sure they are very nimble and fun in the twisties and in traffic, they just won't have the flip over backwards acceleration of the bigger bikes. And they don't like to run at higher speeds for very long because it takes everything the bikes got in order to run 80-90 mph. Great to learn on though, great for commuting, and great for gas mileage. Those new 300s are a pretty good looking bike too.
