i'm a pre med student at georgia southern univ., and i want to buy a sportbike. i'm 6 ft. 280+/-, and im a pretty strong guy (benched 425 last year as a senior hs football player). i was totally set on buying an r6, but from everything i've read in online forums, i am seriously considering an sv650s now. i have been riding this moped (down once, front brake locked over sand at 20-25mph) i bought a month ago and i'm pretty confident i can handle a bike (on normal roads anyway). i looked into taking MSF, but the closest class is about an hour away. i am from columbus, ga and i think there are classes there since it is a big city. i have about 4700 in the bank (mostly from savings bonds), and i plan plan on selling my moped for 1200-1400 (paid 1575). spring semester is coming up and i have 5500 more on the way. plus my mom gave me half of my future car money (2500), but i'm gonna use the other 2500 to buy my brother a bike. he's about as big and strong as i am, except he's 6'3 300 and signed to play center for auburn's football team. if anyone can give some suggestions on what i need to consider before buying, i'll be grateful.
