    Ok, I posted a thread about buying a scooter about 1 month ago. I sold it already :o :rofl: I didnt realize how much I liked riding, and im not taking the scooter 12 miles one way to eat/hang with friends, It just doesnt feel safe. I want a motorcycle :o

    I have wanted a sportbike since I was kid, and thats what i'll probably end up getting, someday. I have basically zero experience on bikes. (taking safety/riding course next weekend)

    What would you guys recommend? No Ninja 250. I was looking at the Suzuki GS500F. Price being a mayor factor in this bike 3-5k is my range. Used is perfectly fine.

    Edit: I also posted this in the main forum for faster replies :o

    My first bike, without ever being on anything with 2 wheels and a motor.
    '07 SV650S
    Lots of people say its a great beginner bike, if you respect the thing, especailly if you wanna go bigger then a 250.

    How do you like that helmet? I was thinking on getting one a while back.

    And ya, the SV650 is always getting recommended as a good beginner bike.

    I stopped and check out bikes after work the other day. The GS500F was alot better looking in person then the pics ive seen on the internet.
