the sv is a good bike for the money. my old sv is being sold on cl for $2k right now. he's given it a nicer rear suspension and better seat. its a decent deal and comes w/ a truck bed full of extra stuff

the 250 looks a bit fat, but idk. i cant imagine a single being a pleasant sound on the street
Thats what I'm thinking.. Money is always an issue haha But, yeah, they have a nice white and silver 600R with leyla graphics at Lunsford Honda that I'm eyeing..

no matter how big the horse is, its all about HOW YOU RIDE IT!!

" i started with my r6, never took msf (actually got my bike before i had experience and had license) i always say... respect your bike and respect the power that it has "

my first accident was due to a vehicle fail to stop and i hit his side of the door, first accident and it was bad.
the best thing to do when you are riding is be looking out for any car out there trying to pull out in front of you (spect the unespected) or something like that..

My $0.02

I would buy an older 600 for the price of a fairly new 250 and ride it within my own levels of comfort.

It's the rider skills that makes a bike safer. If you have none you can get in trouble with a 250 just as easily.

And by skills I mean common sense, self control and love for dear life.

Set yourself a budget, then look for bikes in the 600 range for something that you find astetically pleasing.

Can't go wrong either way, just use some common sense and you'll be fine.

My first bike was an R6 and I took it easy at first....lots of power...now I'm a bit more comfortable and let it open up.

You are right.. it is all about how you ride it.. I guarantee I will be tearing it up in a good way eventually cause I'm a perfectionist and strive for above average pursuits.. aka throttle haha.. but thats a good ways away. Sticking to the basics but that will be totally enough.. I'm not going to let super safety limit me, but I def. plan on getting a decent bike.

Good Advice.. I personally love the R6 but honestly, I just don't think the forward "rake" and I sat on it and the height definitely does NOT give me confidence.. I'd rather stick to something lower stance until i'm more experienced and can handle it.. so yamaha is probably out for now.. How do you like your Yamahahahaha?

Fairings are nice but I would get something that wouldn't cost a lot to repair if you drop it or take a minor spill. Also look at used. Too many good deals to pass up (But, remember, buyer beware).

If I could have rolled back the clock, my first would have been a SV 650.

I love the way the R6 puts you on top of the bike, i rather R6 over anything.... i had the GSXR and didnt like it, then rode my buddy's kawa and didnt like it.

people told me... get a GSXR and dont get the R6 for a 1st bike, the R6 is more agresive.

picking my R6 was the best thing i did!

I wonder if I will even be able to find a good SV 650.. Everybody on this forum raves about it so I'm sure they are snapped up in a second! LOL.. guess I'll troll Craigslist and Ebay.. I saw the maroon one up in The Woodlands that was sold recently, but I was too late..

Sit on them first.

The SV and CBR have completely different seating position/style.
