    Brand new bike for a new rider?

    Okay so I finished with my MSF course and I'm getting my M1 license...I want to buy an Aprilia shiver 750...I read is good for beginners and that it handles well. But should I buy a new bike? I'm not looking to be racing anyone or going fast.. Is it too heavy for me? will I drop it? What do you recommend or what advices you have there for me.
    (And seriously there's not other bike I like besides this one...going more over the look of the bike than anything else)
    btw i'm 190lbs 5'7
    I went and sat on the shiver and I tiptoe while sitting on it

    It takes a season or two to become a competent rider, so i would recomend something used and cheap untill you are confident you know what you want and can handle it.

    tiptoeing is not good and is even worse when you are a new rider.
