This from the guy with the foot clutch. 96zx11boy, if you're looking for parts, post a thread in the Buy/Sell/Trade section. Probably want to ask for a rearset and shift lever assembly.
Besides, the more teenage girls on bikes the better, right?
Actually though, I have to agree in a way. If you really mostly do interstate riding and weigh near 2 bills, then I think you should stay 500cc or larger. Really, with your first bike it's not so much about having too much power as being too heavy. That's why I'd stay away from the liter bikes, especially the old 600 pounders like mine. A 5-600 is a perfect compromise.
