Well After six months and six thousand miles I gave up my sv650. I had no plans on getting a new bike. Last weekend I took suzie on a 300 mile trip from Sevierville to the Dragon, across the skyway and back home. I loved suzie, she was my first love and always treated me well. I planned on being with her forever. All that changed on tuesday 8-7-06. My father in law found a deal on a 2002 vlx 600 for my mother in law to learn to ride on. Being the good son in law I am, I agreed to bring the little 600 home. As I was waiting for them to get the title, I walked around the showroom. In a corner tucked away sat a cute little new 06 honda 919. Neglected, unloved and desperately needing a good home, I looked at the poor creature and my heart went out to it. The salesman said, "boy we can make a deal on that". Then I remembered my little 04 sv. Well I ended up getting the 919 for $5800 and they gave me $3600 for my sv. So I think I did pretty good. I love this bike, smooth, much better suspension and more power! Took it to the dragon this weekend with the wife on the back and we had a ball. Sorry for the really crappy picture. I am out in the sticks right now and I won't have high speed internet for another month or so. but as we all know nothing exists without pics so here it is.
