What everybody has been saying is right- start small, it makes so much sense just to start small- if you do it right, you won't loose any money, and hopefully you won't die. Buy a 250 and ride for a while, then get a 600/650 and ride a while then move to the busa maybe- and when you get comfortable quit riding, period. And it is riding season, so you will be able to ride anytime. But if you do get anything ... I'll be jealous, my parents won't let me.
