If it were my own $7k to spend, I would this Ninja 1000 instead. Already has bar risers and lowering pegs. Add some panniers for a fine ST, with an emphasis on Sport.

Wow, it looks perfect. I need another planet to align, and the window is early February. If this bike is still available, I may seriously check it out. Thanks!

The Wee is mine that I have for sale. Excellent bike. Just replaced it with a GS Adventure.

Based on owning an SV650 previously, I would not worry about reliability, and long stretches of highway. You wont be doing 130, but it will cruise all day at 80 without a glitch.

Yep, the wee is available locally...thanks guys! I may check one out this weekend for the critical seat height/width issue. The 2012s appear to have significant upgrades, but I doubt I will buy new unless the two planets spectacularly align in a most favorable, and robust fashion....I have never considered owning any Suzuki, but they have a real winner with the V-strom bikes: very refined, affordable, and very reliable.
