I'm not stubborn but i guess i just need to hear it for my particular case particulary from someone with lots of experience like uncle bob or similiar. I've done the canadian msf course last year and will be getting a bike this year (my first one) after i graduate from university (in a month). I've read lots of advice to newbies over a year (i carefully consider my options btw) and decided that the sv650s is the better bike as opposed to the 1000s as i am a beginner. The snag is that all the advice that i have read has been to young guys where i am a bit older (21) and much more mature (beyond my years) and plus i am a bigger guy ... i am about 250 pounds. So i guess i just need to hear some advice from you guys...if you say i shouldnt do it, then i'm not gonna sit here and try to convince you to change your mind ...i'll take your advice end of discussion. I prefer to get the sv1000s as opposed to the 650s b/c a)I like the extra power that will be available as i get better over the YEARS (i wanna keep it for at least 5 years or so). b) I think its better suited to my physical size (dont know for sure) c) i like the looks slighty better and since they are close enough in price used and in insurance (strangely enough) why not go for the 1000? Anyways, thats what im going through now...i'd really appreciate your guys advice on this. I respect each and every one of your opinions and WILL listen i assure you.
