i guess now i'm back to searching for a killer deal on 06/07 R6 or gixxer600

Thanks guys
Yeah, MSF BRC is required to get a "M" class license in Texas. Unless you had one from another state, then I'm pretty sure it just transfers over.

GL on the search.

maybe not hp, but loads of torque. either way, likely way too much for a beginner.

to the OP: lowering/stretching is fine as long as you know why you're doing it and what it's going to do to the handling of the bike. if you're looking for a bike to drag race regularly, lowering can be quite helpful on your launches, just don't expect to take it thru curves like you could at stock height.

my 2 cents....

i love buells and will one day get one...

for my first realy sportsbike (i rode a nighthawk 250 b4) i got a nekkid SV650
as for customization i did the xb12r (lightening) front headlights/fairing
which looks something like this...
DSCN0849
i like the streetfighter style personally...

im currently doing a SSSA conversion to my bike which looks like this...
DSCN0875

or if fairing is more your thing...
Opinion on Buell Bikes

the SV is a v-twin bike and has alot of torque but its not so great on the high-end though with few mods (you said you love to tinker and tune) i eat my friends 07 ninja650r like its a grilled cheese samich.... mmmmm cheese... off subject sry... they are great lil bike and very inexpensive there support on SV forums is remarkable, they are imho the best learner bike for a guy... me personally i love the 99-02 1st gen sv650 and theres the 03-07 2nd gen sv650 and finally 03-07sv1000...

i wouldn't get anywhere near a buell. despite harley's agreement to keep parts and such in stock, resale for the bike will be in the toilet and service will be increasing difficult as time marches on. It was never a highly acclaimed bike, either. There are better ways to spend your money.

I think a Buell would be ok, but you are better off with a bike. They've been time tested and proven.
