    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 !!! :D

    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

    Thanks for setting up the course and letting a newb like me play. Looking forward to more of it, just not sure if I will be in the city on any weekend soon.

    Glad you guys enjoyed it. We need to start doing timed trials again. Too bad Stephen wasn't there this weekend, he is very competitive, would have been a lot of fun. :D Next time.
