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

i don't walk around on naked in the summer wearing only cooking oil to protect me from the sun;

not sure learning to ride alone on grass would accomplish much either...

at least the seller is safe and healthy and may have gotten something out of his/her system and just wasn't their cup of tea

Maybe 2 sets, depending on how he rides it.

People are different. Some can start on a liter bike, some need a Zuma.
I think all should have professional training like MSF as a license requirement.
Sad to hear he wants to sell it after dropping it twice and didn't get training.

At least Racer X was coming to the resque by telling him about the MSF. lol
