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.
