Gee Squid, be nice !! LOL

Kelley, how big of a bike are you looking for? 500, 600, ?

What about riding experience, how much?

And i hope this is not stupid, but, are you
male or female?
A little more info will get you peoples thoughts, especially Pete's :cool:

You'll be fine on a 600. I'm 5'7" on a good day, and I have a '00 F4. If I'm wearing my running shoes, I'm on my toes/balls of my feet. Moving the bike around isn't a problem at all.

You could actually fit on just about any bike out there. I've been on ZX9, Busa, GSXR 750, and I've got the same reach on them than I do on my F4. Actually, I think the Busa may be a bit lower.

Cute. Real Cute squid, I have never laughed so hard at a pic. OKOKOKOKOKOK.. pick on me, I am a good sport....

Hey Kelly,

I would go for a Suzuki Katana 600 ? There should be a big diff in insurance between this and the Ninja! (A katana is a sport bike with all the plastics if you didn't know). How about an Suzuki SV650? Nice bike! A Suzuki GS500?? sporty and easy to flick around! But if you consider this bike Look at The Kawasaki EX500 (Ninja500R) It is better than the GS500, because It is watercooled, A little quicker, I like the looks better :)

Where Do you live in Ontario ? If you are close we can hook up for a ride.

Oh Wait, You have an SV650 ?? So I would guess you don't want another ? That would probably rule out a smaller bike too!! So I would like to change my answer to a Suzuki Katana 750. :)


Yes that is my final answer.

Damn Kelly--sorry, no offense but, I had you pegged as a guy (engineering+hockey hmmm :D ). Hey, after Leslie you just never know do you. Well, it's completely cool :cool: welcome to the board Kelly, we need more female canyon carvers in this world (in Texas specifically :D ) Looks like our only one left Houston to the land on the maple leaf too (no Pete didn't move to Canada).

What are you looking for in a bike that you don't get from the SV650? Strictly for insurance purposes the Yamaha R6 is very cheap and the Suzuki Katana which was mentioned.

Hey guys, you are a great help.
OK - Ice Hockey and Engineering... LOL - ok, here is another point I should make. I AM STRAIGHT! LMAO Yes, straight as straight can be! ROFLMAO

Ice Hockey ? = I AM CANADIAN

Bwahahaha! I'm 32, a guy, and I pay about $20/month on my VTR. Was killing time recently shopping ins. on riderpoint.com and the highest quote I could generate was like $360/yr. for a 'Busa or ZX12! Sadly, I can't afford to buy a damn bike right now.
