Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by Bennett, Feb 11, 2005.

  1. Well, thanks to all who provided info on my various posts over the last few weeks. :)

    Today I picked up my brand new SV650S K5 .... 'tis a lovely shade of red. :D

    It is a joy to ride and I'm looking forward to many days of great riding ahead.

    See ya's out there. :)


     
  2. many great YEARS fella, be optimistic :wink:

    well done, i couldnt afford one of them despite wanting one THAT fuggin bad :?
     
  3. LOL! Sorry, it's that damn 'glass half empty' syndrome. :oops:

    Incidentally I was very keen on trying out a YZF600. Alas even though there were a few online, none of the dealers actually had them on the floor (ie. they'd sold em off). :(

    But that's okay, I love this bike anyways ... must've been fate. :)
