I am looking at bikes and plan to buy one in the next couple of weeks. I want a smaller bike to start with; l am an experienced rider but have not spent any significant time on the road in some 20 years. I have been in the dirt a lot. Still, not trying to overwhelm myself with too much bike. Eventually l see myself on a Yamaha FJ100/1200, but for now l have mostly been looking at EX500's, GS500's, and Ninja 650's. Then l stumbled upon an SV650 today. It is a 2000 with 13k miles on it, hasn't been wrecked, and has a full set of Givi bags and a trunk. $2200. If it is as clean as it looks, then it is a bargain. Does anyone have any experience with these bikes? Are they dependable, first and foremost? Is there anything in particular l should look for?
