97 Yamaha YZF 600 S Thundercat discussion forum:
|Unkle said 2005-10-19 14:54|
Hey there - hope this reply reaches you in time? This opinion is from my own limited experiences, so Iīm sure others might feel differently... a Thundercat would make a pretty good first bike.
I started on a Honda CBR250R, went up to a ZXR750, then a GSXR750, then a ī96 Thundercat. The jump from 250 to 750 was pretty noticeable, but then I AM a %!Ī rider :) Going from 750 to the Cat wasnīt a huge downgrade though. Itīs a bit more sedate than the bigger bikes obviously, but the comfort was better, the fun and reliability were there, and itīs good a really good turn of speed on it. I donīt like recommending people go straight for a larger sports bike for their first, but if youīre going to then youīre going to, and you could do so much worse than a Cat - it wonīt go mental on you like an R1īs supposed to, but itīll still give you thrills all the way. Only danger is you may never want to trade it in! Good luck anyway!
