I've been wanting to take up riding for a while, started a thread on it over the summer but didn't get around to it last season. Finally looking to buy because I'm hoping to get a good winter deal and keep it in my dad's garage until it gets warm (April-ish here up north). I figure if I don't like it, sell it and get most if not all of my money back. I've been looking for 250/500cc bikes mostly to keep me out of trouble, but found what seems to be a decent looking SV650. I know I'll get opinions both ways on whether or not it's a suitable beginner bike, so really it's up to whether or not I'm comfortable with it - haven't decided about that yet. Anyway. It's an 03 with 9k miles. New tires/plugs/oil. $2500 "OBO". Small dent in the gas tank which you can see in the picture - I guess the PO's friend dropped it (not while riding). Good amount less than most Ninja 250r's go for around here. I'm going with a friend who started riding this past season to look at it tomorrow. Let me know what you guys think - thanks!
