Well, after many years of other rides, I finally made a decision to get a new toy--an SV650S. I wanted an enjoyable bike, something to go out on and just have a great time. So far, so good. It was this or a 600, but several of the 600s are getting a bit extreme on the racer side and not as user friendly as they used to be for the everyday rider. Plus, the cost and insurance is much easier with the 650, and the amount of website info on the 650 is amazing. Standards, tourbikes and cruisers are fine, but sportbikes are an experience at another level!

Talking Me too

I got my sv650s last Thursday. The weather is not co-operating with me Maybe it's time to move to Phoenix But so far, I do like the bike more than my Katana.
