Howdy with a question...

Name is Nate, I'm from the Clear Lake area and some of you might know me from over on other Houston area forums. I'm getting ready to take my MSF class and one of my friends that rides suggested I come on over here.

I'm new, never ridden a motorcycle, and I'm looking getting either the SV650SF or a Yamaha FZ6. I just wanted to say hi as well ask people what they thought about either bike. I would like to eventually get on a track but for the most part I'll be riding around town and maybe on a few road trips.

Welcome Nate!
Either bike would be an excellent choice. Pick the one you like the looks of, the feel of and the price of and start ridin'!

Do a Google search on each one at a time. Read up on everything you can and you'll see what kind of reviews, problems, strengths and weaknesses each one has. Sit on them, look at the ones that are in your price range and i'm sure one will stick out that'll be the perfect one. Welcome and good luck!

Welcome. when i bought mine i did this. 1. Make sure you like the color/graphics 2. sit on it, comfortable for your body? 3. go with ur instinct

as a new rider, you wont really be able to have a preference and you will enjoy whatever bike you get. so I say go by price and looks! That is what I did and now I am a fan of my R6 b/c that is what i ride.........

Welcome from another Clear Lake guy

I had an SV and loved it...can't speak for the YZF, but the SV woulda been fun to learn on and more than enough for you to still be happy with once you know what you're doing.

I think an SV is an exceptional choice for a first bike. More comfortable, good power, but nothing absolutely crazy, and more forgiving than a super sport.
