Hey, I'm new to this forum and relatively new to the bike community on the internet. In a few months, I will be buying my first bike. I've heard the start small argument quite a few times but can someone explain exactly why it helps to start on a lower cc and why that will make you a better rider in the future. I understand situations where you could panic and accidentally open throttle or grab a bit too much front brake, but other than this why should I start on let's say a ninja 300 vs a middleweight like an 899 in terms of becoming a better rider. I've heard it affects skill but I haven't seen exactly how. If for whatever reason I did decide to start on an 899, would basic riding around the city and some highway for a few thousand miles and then attending CSS or another school be a viable option in order to avoid any skill deficits?
