I could use some advise... 5 years ago I sold the first and only bike I've ever owned. A 97 GSXR 600, yes, foolishly I bought this as my first bike. I rode it for 2 years without incident and fell in love with its performance. Due to a series of events and the fact that I knew I was going to end up causing myself serious damage I decided to give up my bike. Now 5 years later I have a serios itch to start riding again. My problem lies with the fact that I want a that handles like a Gxsr (favorite part of riding is really lay out through turns) but I'm not interested in going Mach 2 anymore. I have been looking around and initially started to lean towards going with a SV650S but had the opportunity to test ride a GSX650F today, have not rode an SV yet. I was really impressed with how smooth the GSX was, thought it was rather lively and handled relatively well. I really didn't get to really test the handling seeing it was wet out and this was the first bike I have been on in 5 years. I'm hoping I can get some advice from some of you out there. Again I'm looking for something that handles like a rocket and has enough giddey up because most of the people I will be riding with ride 750's or bigger. No plans on racing any of them, I know I wouldn't stand a chance on either bike but don't want to get absolutely left behind.
