Thank you Stonesie. It looks like the school I'm probably going to use uses SV650s. It's on the list as a sensible first big bike! I have to confess I rather like the new 'X' edition, but I fully expect to receive a load of abuse for this ;)

Welcome Fella.

We have all been wobblers, many of us have fallen off and most people on here ride for the fun and to our own limits, not anyone elses.

As has been said, pull up a chair and enjoy. Any questions and someone will have done it before :)
