New Rider...once I find a bike

Hey everyone at MH,

I've been following MH for a little while now and thought that it was about proper time I joined the party. I've had my license for a while now and I think its about time I finally get a bike. I'm in the Market for a SV650 (naked), but I'm open to suggestions for a good starter bike. I'm not a small guy (6' 200+lbs) so a 250 might be a little on the tiny side for me. Got any ideas?

Thanks!

gs500f

gs500f - not to small not to big, and has enough power for a guy like you, and still uber forgiving and it looks really nice compared to it's counterparts eg, ninja 500
