here is my old sv
http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/2189920644.html
3k23mc3p15O35Z35X4b1v02661ac4eb69116f
the current owner got rid of the yoshi slip on with stock header and swapped in a cleaner stock system. he's also added a nicer seat, kawasaki 636 rear shock, ugly paint, gen mar bar risers, buell pegs.
he is including the straight woodcraft pegs that i had on it, and throwing in front and rear stands and a lot of extra stuff.
this sv is what i started on and i have no regrets. it was 2 years before i finally got myself into a brc, but this bike taught me a lot.
i love helping out the new riders (not so much NEWRIDER (who cares- pfft!)). the sv is a better option than a ninja 250. with some quad and motocross time under your belt, you will take off on the sv with ease
he lost his job a little while back and is a student with a family so he's kinda needing the money and forced to sell mah behbeh

there are a whole SHITPILE of riders who do care about straight line speed (drag racing, land speed, etc).

Just a different avenue in our sport.

I agree.. def. not the most important thing, but it is important for somebody to like your bike.. I'm not jumping on a bike I can't stand to look at just for the sake of ride or bust.. SV650 is looking more like what I might get i think..

Nice.. I'd be down for this bike and love the blue.. the other red is great, from previous link above.. You guys are really helpful on this site.. I'm pretty impressed actually.

I don't think its important for anyone to like your bike visually, with the POSSIBLE exception of yourself. This is coming from a guy that rides a supermoto: possibly the ugliest style of street motorcycle on the planet, but they're so dang fun to ride I don't care at all. Motorcycling is about the experience, not about image.

yeah, me too. more than once i have considered asking him if he wants to trade back
the blue has even grown on me a little. i think that he's probably addressed most of my small issues with the sv in his short time with it. we swapped bikes in sept.

Yeah, let me correct myself.. I must like MY bike, and who cares what anybody else says!

All due respect po-po. I understand your concern, and would never want to hear about anyone going down from their own lack of control, but op seems to have a decent head on his shoulders. Looks like he is going about this the right way (doesn't mean we can't be deceived), and he has experience with throttle control and braking the way a moto is set up. I give him the benefit of the doubt here and say he can handle a 600 if he keeps his level head. OP, I bought mine in '02 and still don't use the upper end of the rev range the way that the pro's do (thankfully!, I have no track days but I lived in the hill country for most of my miles, I am still humbled!), it's all about riding within your limits and respecting the power these things have. If you ever get on one of these and say "this doesn't scare me" you shouldn't ride! It's not exactly like buying a house before you have lived in an apartment, but I get what po-po was trying to say. I always say the 600's are the doctor jekyl/ mr. hyde of sportbikes. They are quite docile under about 7000 rpm but once you get over that you enter the "fun zone" and that is where these bikes will scare the out of you!

I respect PO-PO's opinion and the things I have read so far on the site have been extremely informative.. Luckily, the "GET the BUSA" and "R1 or Bust" comments by 16 yr olds on here have been spared and I get the real riders commenting and give their .02c's like I requested..

I think I will excel quite well but I will definitely take my time. Both training courses will help round out a good starting experience from where I have been, where I plan to be in the future, and I know for sure it will solidify what I already know about bikes. There won't be any messing around and "experimentation" with the throttle as I know dang well how easily it is to plant your on the pavement. I actually have a healthy fear of 0-60 in 3.4 on two wheels and r-tards I see cutting in on the 15 feet i have of space between me and another car on I10 and 65mph.. a couple of hard bumps or a single twist on that 599cc throttle and that front end is up or back end sideways and loss of control.. Def. a machine to be respected, the SV650 and even more so the CBR600rr.. Luckily some great SV650's on craiglist as well, so I'll think more on it, and $3000 is great for any silly tipovers in the garage i'll be banging my head against my hand for... CBR for future development and the fact that I probably won't go through bikes nearly as fast as I go through sports cars.. I have an extremely fast four wheeler that I first was afraid of then learned to handle the throttle so i take some small confidence out of that and humbly endeavor to survive starting, stopping, panic stops and the other very dangerous aspects of Houston traffic situations.. helmet!
