What are those Mirrors? My girlfriend's working on her SV and she's stuck on mirror choice...

She also gave you mad props for your commitment good sir!

Also, how hard was the SSSA? It's bloody well done

The mirrors are GSX-R mirrors fitted onto SV stems.

The SSSA was quite difficult on my limited budget.

Don't spose you've kept a build log around somewhere?

I'd be very interested to have a read :)

For everyone that says "you should get a bigger bike"...

Here's a quick vid of me on my SV vs. a GSXR-600 at Willow Springs.

As per your title for post, SV650 does have a bigger engine than a GSXR-600

True true...I can't fault the logic in that. However you can't ignore the distinct horsepower difference.
People where I live generally regard the SV as a little starter bike...so I guess it's more of a figurative term.

Probably the wrong place to ask "Do you enjoy your SV650", but I thought i would ask anyways. I recently sold my DR650. It was a great dual sport bike, did well on and off road, but I just got to where I wasn't riding off as much as on. I have been looking at the SV's and the bandit's for my next bike.

I want something alittle sportier, but I still want to be confortable. How do yall think this will compare to the DR I had? I like the torque the DR had, even though it wasn't fast, it was fun.

Great looking bike in this tread btw. I came in just curious, now I think I am just about hooked.

I hate mine. It's a terrible bike and you shouldn't own one.












Damn it, we're trying to keep the club Super Sekret here!

I don't have an SV, I did at one time but now the wife has one so I thought that I would post a pic of her at Tally.

I love the color on that bike!! That was the color of my SV, before some low-life stole it.
