Hey Guys, As ive posted, i got my learners a week ago and was ummming and ahhhhing about my first bike. There were a few contenders and it seemed that i would settle on a GS500.. that is until i went and sat on some bikes. Sat on the GS500 and didnt like the feel. I think that the 50+ k's i have to do back and forth from work would have seen me with a numb ass so didnt suit. I also checked out the F650 which was a much better seating position (more upright) but still didnt like the feel of it. So then i sat on the xvs650 and said YES! So to prove it happened, here is a pic! Im so bloody excited, i get it delivered on friday to my house. Of course i kitted myself out with ALL the gear. good times baby!
