There are several places to try for your L's around Melbourne. There is MTA and Ridetek in Dandenong, Motorcycle Motion in Moorabbin and HART in Tullamarine and Kilsyth. I did my L's at MTA. They were great. Many riders will tell you there stories about each of these places.
As for the SRV250, that's a very nice bike and it is sought after. If you really want an opinion talk to Mel, she goes under the sig of Madmel, her bike is a beautiful british racing green and something to behold.
I looked very, VERY closely at the V25 and in the end decided against because
a) I'm a fat bastard and the three I rode didn't have much left at 100/110 with me acting as an airbrake.
b) I got a hankering for lean angle thanks to a 3am hoon on the GOR chasing my mates VTR1000....on a Postie bike
c) I probably won't sell the VTR250 at the end of my restrictions, I'll just buy a nice 750 cruiser instead.....or a 600RR
A friend of mine had one and it never missed a beat (did go through a few chains but it is a twin) and I found it pretty comfortable to sit on. If you want a cruiser and aren't built like a battlecruiser (or aren't planning on doing much freeway work) go for it.
Yeah you shouldn't have any problems. I weigh about 130kg (and dropping thanks to not doing heavy lifting for a job anymore :\ ) and it skipped away at the lights fine with me on it.
