We should get something straight here. Just because you pass the MSF course, doesn’t make you an above average rider or even an average or capable, street safe rider. The MSF just gives you a feel for the basics in a controlled environment. Riding on the street is nothing like riding in an empty parking lot. The parking lots are good for practicing technique and nothing more. Technique is only part of the battle. The rest is mental… and you hone that with experience from saddle time. Nothing about passing the MSF guarantees that you can handle a bigger bike as your first bike, especially with only the MSF as your only source of any recent significant saddle time. Passing the MSF doesn’t even guarantee that you can put to use the street survival techniques and theories out on the real world slab.
Me personally, I think you’re a bit to dreamy eyed. But I was the same way and picked up the sv650s after being talked out of a yami yzf-r1 for a first bike. It can be done, but you really have to work at it. You’re gonna do what you’re gonna do, but IMO, you should probably think about doing a ninja 250 for a season before going up to a ninja 650r or sv650 or even a 500cc bike (based off my assessment of you being a bit dreamy eyed). If I had to do it all over, that’s what I would’ve done. I, myself, could not in good conscience, tell your parents that you’d be ready to take on a 650r or sv650.
If there’s anything more important than my ego
around, I want it caught and shot now…
