Have a look at the Yamaha thundercat crackin first an u can pick up a descent 1 for a grand.

What he said !   :cool

My first bike was a Thundercat and I'd only sat on a bike about 4 times before that... a CBT, 2 DAS lessons, and a test. A fast sports bike that's also extremely comfy and easy to get your feet flat on the ground.

only problem about test rides are that you can not do them if you are a new license  holder.  I was told you must have at least a year on it.  but having said that take along a knowledgeable  mate  that you trust with reviews and with a license

Kawasaki. Er6
My wife inherited my old er6f, which is the faired version. Great, and easy bike to ride with a v twin 650cc engine. My wife loves hers.
I only gave it to her because I bought an aprilia. Les is right. Bullet proof. Never had any trouble with mine an I've had it three years now

It's the one on the left.

I think the advice to test ride as many bikes as you can is good advice as everyone is different, I tried the SV and really didn't like it, but liked the ER6 and the Fazer equally although they are very different bikes to ride. My decision eventually came down to Which bike I felt most comfortable riding and insurance costs, just take your time and buy the best bike you can afford
I don't care what you think about me, I don't think about you at all !!

I didn't break it, I just thrashed the tits off it at every opportunity, like I said... "bullet proof"

Dont get the xj600!  too soft suspension, really bad fork dive when braking. not that quick, defo not fast, really comfy, bomb proof engine, but not exciting in any way, shape or form. After a couple of days you would be wishing you spent your hard earned cash on anything else .
