    So I'm looking to buy my first bike sometime this summer. I've already taken the MSF class, and I've done a little street riding on my buddies CBR600RR. I don't want to spend more then about $4500 so that I'll have enough money to buy gear. I won't buy new, since I'd just drop it and trash it anyway. Here's what I'm looking at:

    '98 or newer SV650 or SV650S
    early-mid 90's CBR600F2 or F3
    mid to late nineties Kawasaki ZX-6R

    All of these seem to run in the $3500-4500 range in my area (at least asking price, so I could probably get them a bit cheaper). Any thoughts on these bikes? Thanks!

    I've owned an SV650 and ridden an F2. Both are good. Not sure on the ZX6.
