isn't $6K a lot for a dropped SV650? Even with only 93 miles? I'm sure it has more damage than just a blinker.

I's bet a dude on a 250 could do the same. Sounds like ol' boy should have learned a little more before he got on a brand new bik

Just because the dude decided to teach himself in his own *yard* doesn't mean it's a bad starter bike.

I don't think I've ever made a beginner bike recommendation on here. I think it's entirely up to the person and I wouldn't feel confident telling anybody what to get as their first, blindly on a forum.

yes, for some an SV 650 may be WAY too much bike. For others it can be a fine one. Even others could start on a gixxer thou and end up alright - may be the minority but it does happen - and even others will get killed their first day out on anAprilia RS50
