I've wanted a bike for a while, but the timing wasn't right till now. I as close to being a beginner as one can be, having only been on a 35cc scooter before. I've been looking around for bikes for the past 2 weeks and have pinned down my choices to either a Ducati Monster 696 or the Yamaha FZ6. I hear they're both good beginner bikes, but that's from a friend who does 100mph villies on the freeway.
I'm really leaning towards the Monster, but I I like the FZ6. What you guys think?
