LOOKING FOR BIKE

Hey??? got a question for ya
Today I went to browsing for a bike. I looked at a Suzuki SV1000 (93″): it had some modifications. The other bikes were a UM v250 and 650 (08″). I did not get the chance to start up or test, due to weather. Just wondering if you knew anything about either of these bikes. I was told that the newer company UM is a knockoff of the honda bikes and manufactured in Korea (and not so favorable). My preference would be something used and inexpensive of the Suzuki or Kawasaki type. I am going to forget what I learned if I dont get something to ride soon.February 6, 2009 at 6:27 am #16326alaaaaaaaaanParticipant
haha, im in the same boat man i took my class and now need a bikE. On the plus side if you took the MSF course i’m pretty sure u are part of the ride for life prgram which basically means u can attend any msf course you want for FREE. Good way to keep sharp. Good luck on your hunt and if you run into an 03-05 sv650s in the FL area for around 2k let me know lol….February 6, 2009 at 1:55 pm #16331briderdtParticipant

I’d stay away from Honda knockoffs. You can find Hondas on the used market, and the real deal is a pretty reliable piece of machinery.
Steer clear of the 600cc+ sport bikes. They’re an invitation to trouble for a new rider, even if they are pretty. And I assure you, they’re very pretty. Every time I see the CBRs at the local dealership I hear them calling my name. But they’re staying there until I’m ready and can afford them, and I’m tired of riding my Magna.February 11, 2009 at 9:57 am #16409smokeizfireParticipant
