sv vs gt250r?

. this has been bouncing around in my head for a while. i like my sv, but wouldnt mind seeing the top end more. i dont care to go superfuckingfast, which in my opinion my sv is capable of. i'm totally ok with keeping it under 100mph. i like how natural my v twin feels, and i dont really care for how the ninja 250 feels. occasionally seeing cali's bike out in my neck of the woods usually gets me thinking about this again.

however, it is not bike season for my budget. my forks need some work (i know, hotchknstrips (sp?) you offered to help me with this problem. i just havent had time yet), and the bike could probably use some fresh paint, which i could do with my autobody brother in law.

do any gt250r owners want to trade? new riders looking for an upgrade?
i just got some new tires put on maybe 200 miles ago. chain and sprocket done less than 1000 miles ago- sprockets are both supersprox. the engine has no issues. it's been a good bike for me. i just want something smaller. i pretty much only commute. i get let out of my cage once a month or so for a ride. and i like the gt250r's looks.

do i need to put down the crackpipe (figure of speech) and get my forks fixed, or do i make some sense?
i'm not worried about the good ole boys making fun of me for having a girl's bike or whatever. i have already heard it all with my sv.

stick with the sv650, its tried and true and will last forever. IMO it would be a horrible idea to trade your sv for a gt250r

You said it yourself. Put the crack pipe down. The SV is by no means a girls bike. Once you can ride your SV to the limit, then think about selling it.

I know I'm still working out how to ride mine to the edge......

Service the forks, if they're sacked it'll be like having a whole new bike.
