Anything with less than 500cc would be a good start... something like the ninja 250 or similar.

I started out with a used CBR600, very forgiving bike.

$40? my m1 test was $17.50... +1 on ninja 250, i was looking into the cbr125r but everyone said it gets boring after a few weeks due to lack of power, when i'm ready to buy a bike i'm going cbr600rr

A CBR125r is a wate of time and money, it all depends how big(heavey) you are. I would find an older honda or suzuki sports bike, with less than 500 cc

Triumph Daytona 675R will be my bike of choice. Absolutely beautiful to look at, and talking to a Honda mech. he told me himself to go with the Daytona as there are fewer of them, and are more streetable than the jap bikes due to the powerband and low-end torque.

i've started with a R6 on my M1 ... then jumped to a R1 the year after that ... now i'm riding a 125r (work) and have my R1 for the weekend
5 years of riding ....all an all i love my 125r .... don't care how slow it is .. what people say ... the 125r always makes me giggle .......Besides ... 6 bux ... for 500kms 80cents a day on insurance ... what can go wrong ...
