Let me first say that red is a terrible backround colour choice for this site when their is black font involved! :bash:

Anyway,
Does anyone out there have a gs500f that they would like to share their thoughts and opinions on?
or sv650s?

:here:

Personally, I like the entire site. It's very informative and everyone here is more than willing to help with anything that you request.

i want to see what BD says so i can clear up all his SV banter. :wink:

Riley Welcome to the forum! You cant go wrong with the SV. It will keep you occupied longer than the GS. And can be turned into a race bike should you feel the need. Only real draw back to the SV is its suspension, but its way better than the GS susp. 360lb, short wheelbase, V-twin... :dthumb:

These sites will help convince you :dthumb:

The styling is very nice but I really like the price of the 500 compared to the 650 not that the 650 is too much.

Will the 500 be a great or good first bike for me?

Assuming you have zero seat time... Are you looking at new or used bikes? You can get a used SV for an extremely reasonable price ( i know someone selling an 01' in good shape for $1600 around here). Pre 03' bikes look the best in my opinion. The 500 is a great starter bike. Deffinately mild enough to keep you confident. If you plan to have your starter bike a while then the SV will grow with your experience. If you want a real basic bike and plan on moving to another once youve learned... the GS. And buying used will save you the heartache WHEN you drop it. I just think the SV is more for your money, affordable and upgradeable.

:luck: :luck: :luck: :luck: :luck: :luck:

post script: you can use the 500 in the MSF classes

:iagree: again
A used SV is cheaper than a new GSF.
It will also be easier to get a new SV now than to buy a GSF and want to sale/trade for a better bike in a few months.

Don't forget you can get full fairings straight from Suzuki! (sharkzkinz is cheaper)
