I have a Yamaha WR450 (dirt bike) that has been supermotarded (17" wheels/tires, street legal). I just sold a Yamaha YZF-R1. I've had many sportbikes, starting with a 1992 Honda CB900F roadracer, then a few GSXR's ( 2 '86, '88,'90,'95, Track bikes all). First bike? Get a used dirt bike and learn to ride it well. Then get the SV, great bike, you won't outgrow it. I've ridden them on the track, they rock! If you are going for image, go ahead and buy a gixxer. They don't make good street bikes. They are designed for the track. They are uncomfortable on long rides. If you want to ride a gixxer like it was intended to be ridden, go to track days at a track near you. Otherwise, you will just end up another statistic. Or the owner of another trashed 'Zook (if you are lucky).
