There's also a "U" rating so please respect this. Newbies can also say "hello" here too.

Default Helloooooo

Hi everyone,

I'm new to your forum and new to motorbikes . Doing my big bike test next week. Been thinking of what to buy and the SV650 Sport is at the top of my wish list....well at the mo! Any tips you can give me on what to look for would be excellent in the bike or the clothing. Do you all agree an SV would be a good first bike?

Thanks Bunks

Hi Bunks, welcome to the .org
The SV is my first 'proper' bike (albeit restricted ) and it's great!

With regards to clothing.. buy the best, best-fitting stuff. (if that makes any sense )
No point spending 1000 on kit that doesn't fit properly

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome. I've taken hovis's advice and had a look on the sale forum. I want one even more now. There's a lovely black K8 sport for 3500. Role on test day just hope I pass!!!!

Hey there, welcome to the forum.

My SV was my first bike, but I am not allowed to ride it because green men from space made me fall off on my test. I was trying to tell the voices to go away, but they INVADED MY MIND.

Anyway, good luck Kiddo. (don't buy a curvy... they make you smell of turnips!)
