SV = great training bike for the track. upgrade the suspension....slap some decent rubber on there....and haul your out to the track.

I have been doing research on the svrider forum looking at everything that is available for this bike and mods that they are doing.
Very impressive...
I'm glad I asked about this. Looks like a good way to get on the track with a decent budget that the wife will approve.

Thanks for the input, you guys rock!!

very well put. Not to mention that it's not highly regarded by those who don't know any better. You can surprise a lot of people with an SV.

Posers on liter bikes like getting passed in the corners by SVs... about as much as a kick in the ding ding!

I used to wave at those guys mid-corner during track days... they'd wave on the straights (not using all their fingers... maybe they were amputees?). I'd get 'em again in the corners and usually, I wouldn't see them again. Good times!

Like racing minis, running an SV and learning to ride it well, makes you a better racer/ rider. You learn corner speed and mid-corner corrections, as well as lots of other good skills. The best thing about it is if you over-cook a corner, 99 times of 100 you'll only have to roll off a bit and tuuuuuuurn!
