HELP ME!!!!!

i cant make my mind up.

i am hoping to get my restricted liscence within a few months and am already thinking of my next bike. i want a bike that needs restricting so i can take the limiter off after my restriction. i have found three bikes that stick out. Yamaha MT-03, Kawasaki ER-6N and the Suzuki SV650. i was wondering if anyone could give me any guidance as to which one i should go for.:huh::huh::huh:

hope everyone is enjoying the sun.:sunglasses::sunglasses::sunglasses:

keep biking!!!

Ive ridden the SV-650 and the Kawasaki ER6 both in restricted form.  They are both good for a learner, and when the restriction is taken off, they are still good for blatting down the back roads.

To be honest though, I found the SV-650 to have a bit more grunt lower down, and as its restricted, thts where you will be using it.

I dont know how the SV is restricted, but do know the ER-6 is restricted by a screw on the injectors, which just stops the throttle being turned fully...... It would be crying shame if that fell out eh....:roll eyes:

Problem is getting test rides on a restricted licence... You need to threaten staff at some shops to let them give ya a go.... Although the last time I was refused, the scuffed leathers and shagged knee sliders probably didnt do me any favours.....:lol:

SV650!

I had an SV650 from new, had it restricted for a while.  Did 13,000 on it before I traded it in for a ZX-6R... I still miss it.  They're an amazing bike, loads of power but not too much, it's fairly forgiving - once you get used to it you'll be raking the nuts out of it everywhere and loving every second.  They're a real "do-everything" bike. 

I still have the odd impulse to get rid of the ninja and go back to one and fire some GSX-R forks and a new shock into it... uprate the brakes and roberts you're mother's brother - the most fun bike on the planet!

Might be biased but

The ER6-n is the best bike ever built, by anybody, anywhere, ever.
SVs are ok too I spose. In a not quite as good as an ER6 sort of way.

Test rides

I've been given test rides when I have told the salesman I have just written a bike off.  Had to tell em cos they ask you to sign a declaration that you havent had an accident in the last two years.

Guess he just realised I was seriously looking to buy and wasnt just a test pilot.  Ended up buying a bike from him.  So he was happy.

SV650

Having loved my SV650 when I had it, there's no competition in my book - although my gixer is awesome, can't beat the real sound of a v twin :smile
