I just finished up my course at PRS and have nothing but great things to say about the team there. They fuckin' rock! with all due respect...
I'm now on the hunt for my first bike and have narrowed the search down to 2 models: gsx-r 600 and sv650.
I've also gathered some input and suggestions from other experienced riders regarding a "proper" first bike and have had some mixed opinions. Ultimately, I'd like to crowd-source you guys/girls for some feedback on my decision so I can avoid making an irrational one.
I've played around on a couple of bikes; the gs500, and cbr600 and felt quite comfortable on both. My riding style is quite passive aggressive and am not looking for any trouble on the road. My future plans would be to travel down the coast to SF, Vegas, etc and back, though this may not be the bike that I do the trip on.
I've heard great things about both bikes and have been recommended the sv650 over the gsx-r600 a couple times already due to it having ABS and a v-twin. any other pointers I should be looking at? I'm hoping to go test ride both this week.
thanks in advance!
