Hello all. Am new to these forums, not to mention motorcycling in general, so please go easy on this newbie. I completed my QRide course a couple of weeks for the Open licence and have decided to purchase a road bike. I was initially just going to get a bush-basher for awhile but have already got a quad, and whilst not the same, it is serving its purpose for the time being, namely for utility use. Also doing the course on a road bike gave me an addiction I'm sure all of you yourselves have. Anyhoo, on the advice of some others and such, the SV650 or SV650S has been suggested as a good first bike. If anyone here has had one in the past I'd love to hear your opinions, both good and bad. I'm also probably leaning toward the bikini-faired version but obviously there aren't too many differences between the two. I would also appreciate any other suggestions as to what would be a suitable first bike. I'm 6' even, about 85kg and want a bike that is also suitable for two-up. Thanks in advance.
