It would be the first bike, but I have ridden dirt bikes and quads and really anything that goes offroad my whole life.
I know its a bike with a lot of power, but I wanted some decent thoughts.
As a bit of background, I am not silly or looking to impress anyone like many young people who go out and buy something without thinking. I know its dangerous.
My other (safer...) method would be: There are some decent priced honda shadows around here.
The 650's are a lot better suited for a first bike than the 600's IMO. They are still fun bikes with a more user friendly powerband.
