You may also look at the Yamaha V-Star 650 or the Suzuki Savage 650, both are great beginner bikes and the insurance will not kill you. Good place to search for insurance is Dairyland or Bikeline
Any Trails or Enduro style bike would be more comfortable for some one who is fairly tall.
He lost control of his motorcycle and was thrown 30 feet.
In car it is quite easy to see ones feet so and more often people see their foot in cars rather then on motorcycle.
Nasty Feet boots were made by the Red Wing and Chippewa boot companies for Easy Rider Magazine. Chippewa still makes similar boots in the USA, but Red Wing's classic engineer boots, though still made in the USA, are available only overseas.
Your feet should be able to be flat on the ground when stopped
While on a recumbent bike the body position is more horizontal with the riders feet positioned in front of them. Traditional exercise bikes have the rider positioned more vertically with feet under their body.
A standard motorcycle tends to be a motorcycle without flashy chrome and minus fairings etc. You could call it a bare bones motorcycle. Also, whereas on a cruiser you have a seating position that is straight backed but feet forward, on a standard bike you are sitting straight backed (and sometimes leaning slightly forward) with your feet directly beneath your hips.
About 2,000 to3,500 feet under
That really depends upon the bike. The seating position is usually one of the major factors they take into consideration when deciding what type of bike it is to be. A tourer is designed for an average sized person to sit comfortably for long hours, a cruiser for them to sit feet forward in the classic style, and a sports bike so they can get down at speed and shift around for scratching. On trail bikes they pay little consideration to seating and more to how the rider balances their weight on the pegs and the relevant COG (centre of gravity). Obviously they compromise somewhat for costs and practical considerations but rider position remains a major factor in any new bike design. BMW have probably done the most work of any motorcycle manufacturer in their seating, with their ergonomically adjustable design work and crash testing. Doc

it makes them more streamlined. The less air resistance a luge rider creates, the less friction with the air, and therefore the faster he/she will go.
Brakes - the rider just put feet on ground to stop
No. The rider straddled the bike and kicked himsel forward with the feet on the ground.
I depends on the age groups. 8 and under are at 30 feet. 10 and under are at 35 feet 12 and 14 and under are at 40 feet. 16 and under and high school and college are at 43 feet.
