As some of you may already know i have been looking for a 2000-2001 gsxr 600 for about 6 monthes now. I am getting antsy and i havent had much luck. My friend really needs to get rid of his 2001 yamaha yzf 600 r with 7000 miles on it. Originally he wanted 4200 but he has made no progress with selling it and i made him an offer. My question to you all is, is this a good choice for a first bike to ride for maybe one or two seasons at most or is it really a bad choice. all opinions appreciated thank you. the bike is in good shape and never been dropped i feel comfortable since i know who rode the bike and how they took care of it.
