Where on Long Island are you. Jaguar and I are both from there.
If you are willing to consider something else, something more modern, then let us know and we'll have a more open discussion.

Sorry, I mean vertically challenged? #PC
Why does everybody insist on putting both feet flat on the ground while on a motorcycle?
You only need to be able to lean to one side and keep the other foot on a peg. You think anybody can flat foot a BMW 1200GS-A? Not many, I assure you. I actually lifted my bike for more ground clearance, and I'm barely able to tippy-toe both feet at the same time.
If you're doing it right, you hardly ever have to put your feet down anyway. But then again, living in New York might prove to be the opposite where you spend more time stopped than rolling anyway....
But yeah. Sv650 is the perfect bike for you, and everybody else. They're awesome. Get Tannermatic to make you some neat fiberglass bodywork to make it look like a 70's Ducati race bike.
It ain't easy bein' fat and greasy.
Oh and in relation to the actual post, buy a SV650S, I had one as a first "big bike" (CC not size) only sold it when I moved up to my old blade and bought another as a winter hack that was a bit beaten up and not running right, when my first car decided to set itself on fire. I then sold that for a profit (amazing what a bit of knowledge and loads of carb cleaner can do) but I'd have another to pootle around on if I had the storage space.
