I don't think the 900 is necessarily too large a bike to start out with, and like Hendog said, you won't grow out of it in six months. Having said that, it is a bigger bike than most folks start out with simply because many start riding as kids and can't afford a bigger bike at first.
I would also strongly suggest taking a motorcycle safety course for multiple reasons. The two main ones being they will give you a small bike to take the course on thereby giving you a little experience before jumping on the 900 on the road, and it's an excellent safety course. Pay attention to what they tell you. Cars really don't see you on a bike and if you're not defensive, you're dead.
Welcome to the motorcycling experience. Once it's in your blood, you're a biker for life. Enjoy, you've picked an outstanding motorcycle.
Keep the Shiny Side Up!
