Question beginner qus.

Hi,
I love this site...one of my friends told me about it, u ppl are awesome.. sorry but its gonna be a long post.
now to the qu., ive ridden a bike before but it was a 150cc for about 2-3 years back in India where I am from. I've been here for 3 years and been driving so i know the rules of the road etc..
i wanna pick up a bike and yes ive gone thru the countless posts from new riders like me about starter bikes but i dint like some of the smaller bikes' looks. so i was thinking between the CBR F4, YZF 600 or Suzuki SV650s(if i can find one w/ the full fairing). The 1998 F3's also look pretty cool so ill look for those too. so what do u guys think?. i wanted something which looks like a sportbike, didnt like the 500 ninja too much.
any suggestions on how to go about checking out a bike?also, im 6' 170 lbs. and i will def. be taking the MSF course.

Thanks a lot
Nik

I'd go with the sv650s. The lower fairing is an accessory you have to buy seperatly.

If you decide on the SV, don't worry bout the full fairings...as they can be bought as a aftermarket product...

Old, Slow, but ...Smooth
