Had the SV for a while, whats next?
Hey everyone, a friend of mine locally told me about this site a few weeks ago and i've been trolling around a bit to see whats going on and it seems pretty sweet. Anyway, I've been riding my SV650 for 1 1/2 seasons now, and summer is upon us. I was thinking about moving on to a newer, faster bike this riding season, but i dont really know what to look into. The SV is fun for me (Im 6'2 200lbs) but when my g/f tries to ride anywhere on it with me, its a dog (she only weighs like 105 too). I wanna get something thats not too over the top, but still with plenty of power. I'm really happy with the quality of the suzuki, so naturally my first option was to look at gixxers. I started just looking into 600's to keep the cost down, but soon realized that i would get bored with that just as i have been getting with my SV. Now i have started looking at 750's and even 1000's. Some advice would be really helpful. Even other brands. I've heard from some that the years and models im looking at i would do best with a Yamaha or a Suzuki. I also would really like something fuel injected as opposed to carburated. So pretty much im open to any suggestions of Inline bikes that are from 750-1000cc that would be good for a novice rider (i dont use beginner since i have ridden for a while, but not experienced because i've only been riding for a little over 1 season). Some other things i would look for in a bike is the brakes and suspension geometry. I want something fun to ride in sharp corners. Also something that is nice and "flickable", something easy to throw into a corner and it will pleasantly supprise you. So what do you guys think?
