when my 04 dl1ooo with givi v35 cases was totaled i picked up a new 5 year old 03 sv1000 with 0 miles. i dont know what the differances are but it feels smoother like the fly wheel is lighter. i miss the fairing and side bags but i put a nice color matched coos case with brake lights on it. i miss the soft long travel suspension but the sv feels so strong ill never reach its limits. i put on the buell lower foot pegs and raised the bars. i also found a color matched hugger. l would like another touring bike but the sv is staying with me.
