Sammy, you are nowhere near ready to race the big bikes, although you are improving with every lap. Start mini racing, you'll learn more than you could ever imagine, and be able to carry everything over to the big bikes.

I have had some good track battles with an SV. They sure do handle well in the turns.

Which bike are you referring to? If you mean mine than I'd have to recommend something else. Not letting her go for $4000. The rear
shock alone is worth $800 .
