trying to decide on a good starter bike, while slipping under the sport-bike insurance dragnet, without sacrificing a fun ride.
the two i am looking at are the Suzuki SV650 and the Honda NightHawk 750
A huge chip for the 750 is that it's a honda, that speaks for itself
what are the opinions on these bikes?
BTW: i have been riding trail bikes since i was about 7, so motor-cycles are nothing new to me, however, i'm not stupid enough to run out onto the street with no experience there
yes i am going to attend a safety course(required in IL)
yes i do plan to buy the best gear possible
yes i will probably go for a used bike, since the '04 zukis look better anyway
