Welcome Melanie and DD07.
Melanie - What part of Texas?
DD07 - Some folks consider the SV throttle to be a little sensitive for beginners. The TPS adjustment is supposed to smooth out throttle response and lessen the sensitivity.
Also recommend getting some frame sliders (Motosliders popular here) to protect stuff in the event of a fall.

Sorry for the late response. I need to change setting to get alerts. However I paid $3500 for mine and had around 3500 miles on it. It came with no extras just the bike.
As for the throttle yes it was touchy but I've become used to it and wouldn't change my choice of this bike because I love it. And thankfully the bike came with sliders in it. Can't wait to ride more and post more!
