|Mr Nice Guy||I'm 6'2" and it fits me fine. Only way to know for sure is to sit on one though.|

|m3atwad||hey, I am 6 feet 4 inches, do you guys think i would fit on this bike?? I dont' want to look like the bike is too small. I only weight 192 so i am not overweight.|

|Mr Nice Guy||My buddy has one for his first bike and has done great on it. They do have a lot of acceleration for someone who's not used to bikes but if you take it easy it'll be a good beginer bike you won't get tired of soon. Also being half faired if you do drop it it won't cost as much to fix. I'd say go for it!|

|m3atwad||do you guys think a sv650s is too dangerous for a newbie to start on? I really don't know myself because this will be my first bike and I was thinking in the beginning of getting a gs500f used, but some people said just to go with the sv650s cause it is pretty cheap and a really good bike.|

Should I be so out of line to also suggest that you take the FIM Course.
Also to point out that a m/c is NOT like a car in that you can be riding it numerous yrs later on. Check with others & you will find many switch bikes within a year or two.
So why not the 500cc vertical twins by Suzuki & Kawasaki which are ideal bikes for beginners.
Sportbikes are really for experienced riders as they are with peaky engines, dramatic stopping power, & are not forgiving bikes to try & learn on.

|mac020||Don't forget about insurance, parts, and tires! Buy something cheaper (the 600 is good) , Graduate, get a good job, and then buy the R1 when you can comfortably afford it.|

|m3atwad||I have been looking at the sv650s and i actually really like it. The fact that it has so many aftermarket parts is really nice too. I think i will probly try to get my hands on one of them in the future, especially if i can get one for 3k. Thanks a lot for the reply!!!|

they are in Marietta GA, which isn't too far from Huntsville. At least you can sit on some bikes and get a feel for what you want...

|04cbr600f4i||I recently bought a 04' CBR600f4i from my dealer for $6800 out the door. But it came with a full yoshi exhaust,fender eliminator kit,new brake lights, frame sliders, and 2400 miles. I wouldn't count on finding a f4i for 4k, but you never know.|
