Just learn on the damn 600cc.
Yeah - I'm currently torn. Part of me wants to start on the Ninja 300.. but am worried that I will outgrow and get bored of it and be a complete waste of time/money. But the other part of me is a little bit intimidated by a 600.
Being a fairly small guy 5"7.. I'm concerned about size/weight the most but from what I read, the 300 is pretty much just as big/heavy as a 600. So taking my time with a 600 might be the way to go.
