Hey, how ya doing. I hope this is the right forum for my question. Well I have been looking for a bike for about two damn months. Way too long. I have narrowed it down to two bikes. Both are 2005. Both are private seller. The SV1000 has only 2000 miles on it, and he has finally come down from $4500 asking price to my offer price of $3800. This happened just this evening. So $3800 for the 2005 SV1000 in case you get confused easily. The Triumph Speed Triple has 7,000 miles. He has accepted $4250 for it. So now I have these two great deals waiting to be had. (sorry I haven't test-driven either one). I have the cash. But need a little more experienced input about which bike might best suit me, which bike is better overall, or anything else that might help me. I am 49 years old, my only experience with motorcycles was a KLR 650 which I owned a few years ago, and drove primarily on pavement, and a Genuine Buddy 150cc which I owned last year and got pretty good splitting lanes with. So I am experienced, but not hugely. I want a bike to explore the back roads with, maybe go into the Foothills (I live in Denver). No interest in driving around town, sitting in traffic, I never expect to get above 80 or 90 MPH. I want a seat of my pants experience, lots of torque, lots of 0-60 acceleration. Mostly I plan to explore with it, though. So comfort is important, too. I appreciate your input. I plan to buy one or the other in a day or two. Thanks again.
