that triumph looked good

Yes it did. Loved that bike, but it was heavy, somewhat fragile, and parts were expensive as well as a bit of a pita to get.

Needed something cheap, light, with big aftermarket for cheap replacements, and CRASH CAGE !!!

I headed in the right direction with the DRZ, but after riding it for a bit, came to a conclusion that I hate dirt bike ergonomics on the street, so sold it.

Hopefully SV is the right choice. So far I'm liking it a lot. Its definitely not Triumph, but I think it will be perfect for Gymkhana, which is basically all I do on the bike now-days.

When you click share, use the "Embed" code not the simple link code. It should look something like this

{iframe width="480" height="360"
src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/
cILWQIjXTd0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>

Not exactly Gymkhana related, but FINALLY touched a knee today, and did a clutch wheelie.
