44 year old new rider here with just over 2,000 miles of total riding experience. I just took home a '21 SV650/A ABS.

Prior to the SV I've been riding a Royal Enfield Meteor 350 as my "training wheels." Riding school isn't mandatory here and I just learned riding safety and techniques in YouTube + practicing on empty residential streets.

Got the SV because I needed an expressway (i.e. freeway / motorway) legal bike. There's a prehistoric law here that only allows 400cc and above 2-wheelers on the expressway.

Chose the SV because of the mature styling, iconic status, rave reviews, V-twin character, low seat height, made in Japan and all that. Just before I signed the dotted line, I saw a good deal on a new old stock '20 Kawasaki Z650. It was about US$750 cheaper than the SV. But I didn't let that distract me and now we all know how the story ended:

Looking forward to learning and hopefully also contribute in this forum. Cheers and ride safe!

Welcome, I really like that bronze like frame color for '21. I had a holiday in the Philippines a few years ago travelling around by coach up north of Manila. Very enjoyable but at times I wished I was on a bike, some great winding mountain roads in places. Enjoy those extra HP's :giggle:
