  19. Heh thanks for all the replies people! I originally wanted a buell but they are too expensive for me right now. Am looking at the sv650 as i luuurv vtwins and really like the speed triple. All depends on money now i guess, dont wanna go too big either as i want a bike i can learn with and one that im slightly afraid of so it will keep me within my limits.
