Talking Back on 2

well picked her up from Motorcycles Unlimited yesterday after they put a fresh set of tires on her for me. 2ct on the front and Power on the rear . Dialed in the the suspension(a few goodies there:icon_bigg ) and off I was.:icon_bigg

This is the "slowest" bike i've ever owned and yet it puts the biggest grin on my :icon_bigg face of any bike I've ever owned.

Here are a few crappy pics from my cell and the link from Motorcycles Unlimited's site.

I already thanked Motorcycles Unlimited in their section but again can't say enough how great of a shop it is. :notworthy

I am wondering why everytime I show up at Motorcycles Unlimited Patrick says "Give me a call next week." and guess what... I always seem to be calling him the next week. :laughing6

Congrats on the bike Martin. You'll love it at the track, especially with that Ohlins shock. I got introduced to the SV when some old guy stuffed me in a turn when we were riding through the forest one time. I was like . Some people on here may remember that guy.
