Well it would seem that everyone has ragged it at some point!

but it is still pretty much spotless and remarkably capable bike. It will go away for the winter soon and come back out in the spring when I will need to do a little run to the Pyrenees or say Austria just to make it worth having. For what I paid I can ride it next summer and sell it on at no or a minimal loss. I have had bikes that a lot more fun but this one is more about getting there with luggage.

I'm super jealous! Of the bike and the fact that you can just go to the Pyrenees in the spring b/c you feel like it! Those pictures look great!!!

I miss my SV650!!!

I am guessing you don't follow WSB? That's Leon Haslam leaning on my bike.

What's WSB and who is Leon Haslam?
Are you secretly famous hobnobbing with celebrities I've never heard of?

BTW This is not like the world series this is actually a worldwide competition

I am not secretly famous I sometimes get to hobnob with peeps from the bike world as I know some racers and classic collectors, but these pictures were taken by the previous owner who is a blood biker.
