I've only had 1 year on the 250 (my first bike), I got it with 3 miles on it.Well first of welcome to the forum
How long have you been on the 250?
A friend of mine has a GS500 ( relative starting bike as well) and he has gotten to the point to get into something with a bit more grunt and he loves my SV.
Awesome dude!! I'm really good with cornering, but with a new bike and tire size, I'm sure there will be a bit of a learning curve.Welcome to the forum. :hello:
You mean this jump??
Your story sounds a lot like mine, I spent a year on a 250, jumped up to a SV. Certainly worth getting. I4s are neat, but a little over the top for normal street use. My biggest tip, if you feel you need that extra speed, take an advanced riders course and learn to corner.
Good luck :thumbsup:
