Welcome. I'm down in Terre Haute, IN and I get up to Indy quite a bit. Never been to Logansport though. How much riding experience do you have? Granted, street riding and dirt riding are very different. A 600 or smaller would be a wise start. The SV650 is a twin, so the power curve is very different than that of an inline-4 600cc bike. My theory is that it's much better to start small and work your way up. I would highly recommend that you buy a used bike first and get to know how street bikes handle. Gear is extemely important. I always say that if you can't afford to buy the proper gear, then you can't afford the bike. I would also suggest that you attend a riding school as well. Proper instruction will do you more good than a bigger bike. Keep us updated, and feel free to ask questions. Just be prepared for the answers that you may not want to hear.
