Just want to say hello to the BCSB community and introduce myself.
I had no riding experience at all (with a motor), so I did the sensible thing, and went through proper training with a riding school. Passed my Class 6 almost 4 weeks ago now, and have been riding almost daily since. (3000km and counting )
As my 1st bike, I got a 01' SV650S (I know...250cc riders, it's too good a deal to pass when I saw it on CL) At first I was a bit concern about the power and extra weight (our school uses the Super Sherpa and Ninja 250 as trainers) and tried to do my homework by reading reviews online (eg. svrider.org, motorcycle.com, etc.) and get as much info as I can before taking it for a spin.
But when I did finally went out with the bike for the first time, I can't believe how nimble and smooth it is!! Loving every minute of it.
Also want to say hello to all SV riders on this forum. Look forward to meeting and learning from you guys!
