Smile Hello!!!!!

Hi everyone!
Just got my license couple weeks ago, still looking for bike.
Try to learn more before really riding out there.
Try to find middle weight bike, CB500F, SFV650 and FZ-07 for commuting and fun riding.

Are those good choices?

Welcome! Have you taken a motorcycle safety course yet? I think you would be very happy with a 600cc bike or smaller to start out on. I'm a fan of the FZ's myself.

Dirt is for riding, the street merely gets you there.

A Few

Welcome, all are great bikes. If you have not ridden dirt bikes in the past I'd go for a used 650. Just my opinion.

I would say go with a used SV650 for a first bike. Plenty of power for commuting and with a bit extra for pure fun. Parts are cheap and plentiful.

I used to ride scooter for decades and decided to ride manual sift.

Took the Basic rider course couple weeks ago. Now, still searching for used bike. Since I have no experience in maintenance, get a used one in good condition is my first thought.

Thanks for any advise and suggestion.

Safe riding!

Welcome! The SFV650 is a really good bike. It was my first and I still enjoy riding it. It's so easy to maneuver. It doesn't have the top speed of a 600cc bike but from light to light it's more than enough.

Sounds good. Hope I can find one. No need for top speed. Safe speed is enough for me.
