haha I really think a sv 650 would be a perfect bike, if Keith is selling his, check it out I just serviced it a couple weeks ago, U wouldnt look funny on one and would have enuf power for years, a ninja 250 is a great bike, but prolly would get tired of it purdy quick

i say sv650.... they're not too slow so you can have a lot of fun with them and not get too bored. They handle well and you can practice wheeling with them. Also more of it's power is down low so it's pretty fun to ride on the streets while not having to rev it up that high... i just try to look at the positive side

U should get the katana. Has enough power to go fast, and looks like a sport bike. BTW Im sure we could rig up a throttle limiter on it. So U could learn nice and slow. Plus its already fixed up and I can vouch that its a nice riding bike.
