Video: Why the Yamaha R6 is a terrible first motorbike
 

So you’ve got your learner’s license and now you need a bike. A Suzuki Hayabusa is too mental (obviously) and the KTM RC 390, well, that’s for just girls. Or men who wish they’d been born a woman. So you settle on a Yamaha R6 because it’s not too big, not too small and, most importanly, not too expensive. Hell you just saw a low mileage 2006 model for R67 900. Man, you can like totally buy that cash, now, and rock out like Valentino Rossi. NO! Bad idea! Terrible idea! Don’t do it! And here’s irreverent master, Mr. Regular, to tell you why. – Thomas Falkiner
