Oh the last thing I wanted to mention. Salvage bikes are worth a look ( yeah I am selling one).

My race SV has been crashed four times, but the title is clear. I could put the street bodywork back on it and sell it clear title ( which would be a dis service to the buyer). My SVS salvage title got laid down and destroyed the bodywork.... Once. Which would be the better deal?

Stan... what bike have you not owned?

Seems like it'd be a shorter list.

Would you really honestly recommend that bike for a first time rider?

Odds are she will drop it, and a Duc of that vintage is not easiest to find parts for - unlike say an EX250 where you can just go into your local CG for levers.

Have you ever sat on a 900ss? The geometry of the bike does not scream "Easy to ride for a beginner!"

Also, while the motor is a 2valver, it still needs the belts changed every 12k, and a little more TLC than your average Japanese bike.

I could go on and on..

I should have been more clear sorry. I am open to all options and opionions but keep in mind that im looking for a good beginner bike.

I want to be comfortable and i would really like it if i could plant my feet on the ground, i'd be nervous if i had to tippy toe. and as Stan said something if/when i did drop it i could find the parts easily enough.

Have you considered a Ninja 650R? I don't know if you can find one in that price range or not, but it's a pretty good beginner bike.

No I would recommend the Monster not the SS.

Parts even for a 92 are still easy to come by for the bike did not really change for many years.

The only real issue I have with the Geometry is the steering lock or lack of steering range. Other than that they are easy bikes to ride and that is a clean example

Wow, that is one clean lookin' SV. Beautiful. I'd be all over that one if I were in a similar situation as you.
