Got a 650 back in August. Just started posting on this forum in the past couple of weeks. This is my first motorcycle and I love it. Before I took the MSF course I was gung ho on getting a cruiser, but after the course and riding nighthawks decided that I wanted a standard bike for the seating position. I was either going to go to a used nighthawk 750, or the V-Strom. Glad I couldn't find a good nighthawk cause I love the Strom. However I do have a disease now where I keep buying stuff for the Strom and can't stop.
