New rider

Whatup guys, new rider here...picking up the bike by THIS Friday!!!

I rode little dirt bikes when I was younger(36 now) as far my experience goes and I'm doing the rider training this weekend.

For some reason I got it in my head that I need a more practical commuter in the form of a Suzuki SV650! What?!! Cray cray IK...

That being said I want to absorb as much information as possible and be a GOOD rider. I want to train a lot and know everything, hopefully get some track days in as $ allows.

Hailing from McMinnville, OR and a US ARMY Combat Vet.

Cheers

Get as many hours in the saddle as possible. Many many is more better.

Oops, I did not realize I had posted a non-English version. I was somewhere were I could not listen to it and just assumed it was in English.

Congrats!

SV has always been a great bike, for many years. A trusty standby.

Another one to consider might be the V-Strom 650, again rock-solid reliable.

What Dealer? Price?

Also, check out Oregon Lightweight Moto (https://oregonlightweight.wixsite.com/moto). They stage track days at Mac Track that are a lot cheaper and more laid-back than bigger tracks, oftentimes running open sessions so you can ride all day long at your leisure, and it's right in our backyard.

Sv is a great bike.
I've been riding an sv1000 since 2006.
Keep good tires on it. And it won't disappoint.

Best advice I've heard
" relax...breathe.....look up. "
