is SV650 good for a first bike for 200-250 pounds 6' me?

650 cc is great, never too lackluster like some 250-300-500 cc bikes. Power is manageable, but hard to get bored of. You definitely won't outgrow that bike.

Kawasaki Ninja is a sports bike. Instead of sitting upright, you're all the way forward, with feet behind. Not ideal around town or for rides longer than 1h.

I ride a Monster 821 now, but I'm still a big fan of the naked Honda CB650 - especially 2019 model or later. Elegant, comfortable and fantastic 4-cylinder.

Here in Asia, Honda wins for servicing & parts availability, etc. Way better than Ducati. Apart from personal taste, there are other practical factors that should guide your decision when buying a bike.

But yeah, once you're comfortable riding a manual bike, you can't go wrong with SV650 (or CB650!).

I never understood why people should first buy an anemic 250-300 cc bike, unless they're coming from a bicycle or scooter. 650 cc is a great medium.

Any recommendation for an inexpensive headless CMS?

Try running on cheap hosting. πŸ™‚

What do think about the viability of a book focused on enteprise software development using Laravel?

These general concepts aren't going away anytime soon, but writing a new book specific to a PHP product (in 2019) would be outside of my comfort zone.

What is your audience?

Thanks for your reply!

I am thinking mid-level developers who are moving towards senior positions and/or developers who work in large organizations.

I've picked up a specific product (Laravel) to narrow my focus and ensure the sample codes are similar. Although the same concepts can be described in a framework-agonistic way.

There is also one behavior pull that I am expecting...there is a debate in the community that Laravel is not "enterprise-ready" and there has been efforts made to debunk that. I expect to get some network traction if I can convince those advocates to spread about this.🀞
