Start on a 250. If you have pride, swallow it and start on a 250. SVs are great, but honestly they aren't as reliable as I'd like and you will end up sinking a lot of money into one trying to keep...

Yeah, sorry guys, but he has a lap timer and counter on his dash. Rider is responsible for riding the bike, and counting to 10. Just admit that it is a dumb mistake that is incredibly easy to make...

Few years ago I was looking at exactly these two bikes. Ended up getting the VFR for the ABS brakes, the engine, the looks, the handling and the luggage. It's down on power a bit from the FZ1, but...

The cam chain thing isn't a major problem, just something to be aware of. It makes a lot of noise (tapping sound) long before it fails and isn't that difficult to fix. The f4i is typical Honda. On...

You can't put the clipons above the triple without raising the forks and screwing up the handling. Best bet would be riser clipons from woodcraft or svracingparts. On the first gen the N and S top...

For the record, I had R&G frame sliders on my sixth gen VFR when it got knocked on it's side by an SUV. Essentially ZERO damage. A slight scratch on the mirror and rear grab handle. The expensive...

SV650 is easy to do basic maintenance. 650R will require removing more plastic. But the 650r only has 1 set of cams for when you have to do the valves.

Probably the GSXR is the easiest 600 to...

I am actually staying only a few blocks from indiabikes, so looks like I will be on an enfield. Unfortunately I won't have time to buy and sell a bike, though that would make things much easier.

SV650 would be the default choice. Also DL650 if you want more of an adventure feel. Either bike can be made into pretty much anything.

Also maybe try to find a Ninja 650 or Versys. If you want...

Ties for SV

I'm a pretty big fan of the Michelin Pilot Road 2. I get really good wear out of these, and I've done a trackday with them and had no worries about grip levels. Good traction in the wet. I could...

Needs ABS

Perfect replacement for my 2002 VFR, except no ABS! I can totally see Kawi selling the naked without ABS, but on an ST it seems like a major oversight.

From what I understand, the Tiger is probably as close as you're going to get. Also, the new multistrada. I have a VFR and it seems to do everything you list as well.

SV650 valve adjustment

Don't know where that came from here, SV650s definitely need to have the valves adjusted. They're standard shim/bucket valves, I think the interval is 24,000 kms. Lots of people go longer (like I...

SV650 or VFR in Mexico

I wear a Warm n Safe electric jacket under my leathers. Since you have a 2 piece, you should be able to make it work. Keeps me toasty warm.

Sv650?

Have you considered an SV650? While not as off-road worthy as the DL650, the naked is a very nice bike, basically equal to the Ninja 650 but without the fairing. You can get a centerstand for it if...
