Suzuki : SV: eBay Motors (item 160436545340 end time May-26-10 19:30:00 PDT)

I ran across this bike online and was thinking about getting it because of the price and I figure it would be a good bike to get more experience on. (ins would run about ~600/year paid in full, full coverage, or about ~100 down, 55/month.)

But I really like the R6 bikes...the early 2000's? to 2005 I believe, and there is a 2000(2001?) Honda CBR F4 in the area that looks pretty nice for 3,000. (ins would be closer to 1,200/year est)

I'm just wondering if it would be better for me to go with a 650 twin, as opposed to a 600 inline four... I know the 600's have about ~30-40 more horses, but I'm still not sure that it would really be too much, I think I could handle it.

I just don't want to get a twin, and then be ready to upgrade in a few months- a year. I want to find one I'll love for 3+ years.... any suggestions?


edit: forgot how much more the full coverage was for an inline four, going to go with a twin. Now to find one in my budget. lol.

Stick with the 650 twin.

It definitely wasn't a personal attack. I think you are a good guy and definitely not a douche. I was simply referring to the squidliness stigma that is attached to GSXR's (hence the flip-flop comment). I guess you've never heard someone say "gixxerdouche?" That term is usually related to someone (squid) riding a GSXR and spouting off about how his bike is faster than "XYZ" bike.

Anyhow. Just meant it as a good natured ribbing not as a put down.

i think you made a smart choice gleny. the concours is all over the mags with really great reviews. with your back i think the zx14 would have been trouble. i know i would have a hard time going back to a super sport style bike.


anyone going to ride this next weekend? traffic will be bad, but weather is looking good.

Thanks for the info iroc. I don't want to spend too much, I do have other expensive hobbies. I think I was trying to get ahead of myself, a twin should make plenty of power, a lot more than my 200. And it's not like it's the last bike I will own, and I still have more learning to do. So no inline four yet, at least for a few years or more. Lol.

Btw, nice pics, looks like a lot of fun!

And krid, maybe the fishing will pick up shortly if your still out there and it hasn't yet. Lol.

Ah, well better luck next time maybe?

And I do love the styling of the ninja's. I would get one if I could find one in good shape for the right price. Guess I'll just keep my eyes open, and be patient. Lol

wtiger - I would HIGHLY reccomend the SV. They are great bikes & fairly inexpensive to "accesorize". Check out svrider.com to see some great examples of what you can make these bikes into.

Well I'm going to throw my 2 cents in. I am happy for Iroc and gleny. At the end of the day it's about what you like and what you feel comfortable about in a bike. I'm happy for both of them.
You know I think I'll go riding some where this weekend to drur. I don't get the long weekend most do. But, I get two day's off in a row Hell Ya
