Hi All Adam from Brisbane. I picked up my 2006 XVS650 classic just over 9 months ago, and I wish I'd done it 20 years earlier. What a great way to get around. Whilst I love this bike... its a little bit lacking at the top end when you put a fat bastard like me on it, so I'll be looking to upgrade coming up to xmas. I'l keep the Yamaha though, and try to get my wife to get her license & she can use it. Its been a great learners bike.
