    If I was starting out riding and wanted a sport bike you certainly can't go wrong with either the Kawasaki Ninja 400 or the Yamaha YZF-R3. Both are capable of triple digit speeds. They are both very reliable, light, handle excellent and fuel efficient. Hmmm, sounds like a favorite car of mine (except for the handling part)!

    I have the Mirage of motorcycles. TaoTao powermax 150. Can't beat the price at around $1,000 shipped to your door. It's good to have some mechanical skills with it but all the parts are available cheap. Take off the "VIP future champion" stickers to save your manhood.

    Consider taking a Motorcycle Safety Foundation Basic Rider Course in your area. You don't need to own a motorcycle to take this course. They will provide you with everything. Learn the safe way to ride before you teach yourself all the bad habits. I wish I had taken this before I bought my first motorcycle.

    I suggest doing a track day at your local road course. I did one the week after I got my license to learn how to handle my bike in any situation. I never went back to the street after that and have six bikes now.

    Been thinking about getting a basic motorcycle myself these days. It's a bit of an expensive hobby to get into, though, especially for me as an outsider who doesn't really know anyone who rides. Very tall barrier to entry.
