hey guys... i have grown up riding and owning dirtbikes my whole life, so i am not new to bikes. i have been tinkering and riding friend's bikes some and i am ready to buy my first road bike

i am leaning towards something like a ninja600 or any kind of 600cc(ish) sport bike.

1)first of all, i am 19 years old and 250lbs. a 600 will be enough bike for my wieght, right?

2)what insurance co. has the best rates?

3) are ninja bikes higher maintainance?

4) what key things should i look for when shopping for a used bike?

i got my motorcycle liscense today and plan to take an MSF course soon as well.

if it makes any difference, i rode a kx250 2 stroke motocross bike for years in high school.

thanks

1) a 600 should handle your weight just fine
2) State Farm (IMO)
3) depends on what you're comparing to. compared to Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha...no. Compared to a Ducati...less.
4) see the post I just put up on "Buying a used bike"
