I apologize for the crummy camera phone shots, and please excuse the pos in the background.

This bike is a blast! I love it! So much fun, and it is cheap too! Low maintenance, and gets great mileage.

But, POS in the background? :blink:

It's a love/hate relationship. :P

Keep it shiney side up and stay safe - Love the color and that mean looking face on that bike - sweet.

This may be a stupid question, but did you look at a BMW bike at all? They usually have EXTREMELY low payments, are great on gas, and have a plethora of safety equipment standard - I thought ABS on a bike? WHY? Until I rode it. Best bikes I ever owned.

And your 5-er is sweet...probably on a first name basis with a mechanic somewhere, but the drive!!!

Nice, but I always cringe when I hear of someone getting a crotch rocket because of the danger involved. Please be careful, Nick. Those things are so quick, you could lose it in a second, and unlike in a car, if somebody hits you, your chances go way down. This is not to rain on your parade, I am just being honest here.

You should have gotten yourself a Hayabusa as long as you were going with Suzuki. Who doesn't love a top speed of 198 mph? 8)

Sweet bike nonetheless. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I don't plan on killing myself though, so the 'busa is out of the question...at least for a couple months. :P

I like some of the BMW bikes, but they are fairly pricey and the ones I like are just too much bike for me right now. The SV650's are great bikes, especially for beginners like me because the power is very controllable due to it being a v-twin unlike peaky 4-bangers. They are reliable, cheap (i got mine brand new, but for a really good deal actually), low maintenance especially with the FI, and they are a lot of fun.

I'm all about the safety right now. It is definitely my top priority. I invested in only the very best gear...while it won't save me from being run over, it is definitely top quality stuff that will work well in protecting me in the event of an incident. Obviously it isn't just the gear, but my riding and being aware of my surroundings that will keep me safe... I love riding, but whenever I go out I am very cautious for my safety. It's a scary thing. I just rode the freeway for the first time today and it is a great feeling, but it is definitely something I need to get used to especially with the wind...at high speeds it can be a bit unnerving.

Thanks though guys. I'm loving the bike. So much fun...took it out through some back roads today and it was a blast.
