I haven't been on a bike since August 11th of 2001. I won't bore you with the details. I had a near-fatal accident back then but the itch never went away. Sure do miss my Suzuki SV650! Had a '99 and loved that bike. Thinking about getting a new one. I had my fun on the bigger go-fast/all plastic bikes...but that SV always kept the smile on my face. That thing's a real canyon carver. Man, that bike was built for the twisties! Maybe it's just a mid-life crisis creeping up on me. I'm approaching 40 quickly, but what I wouldn't give to hop on a new SV! Any SV owners out there willing to do a comparo between the old and the new SV? Did that bike just get better with age or is it about the same with a few minor changes here and there?
