Ok i am looking to get a first bike, and i'm tossing up between these two bikes. I'm leaning very much more to the across. But what i want to know is, is it a good bike for learners compared to the CBR? A new CBR with warranty seems like a safe choice money wise. But i'm worried i will be too big for the CBR and look ridiculously awkward.(i'm still yet to sit on a cbr125) im 6'1" and close to 80kg's so it may feel like i can fling the CBR around like a bicycle. I called one of the dealers just to get a bit of advice on the suzuki but he didn't seem very helpful granted he tried to sell me a hysong gt250R while i specifically said i wanted the across, but anyway he said that the across you need to rev it up lots to get it going. Will this be a problem later on assuming i buy a private second hand across? My intention is to use it approx 2/3days a week, and i would like to keep the bike for a decent amount of time . (not just upgrade quick, i want my first bike to be one that i remember like one that has 'character') EDIT: i'm only really looking to spend around $4000 for the bike.
