  9. Welcome to the world of v-twins.
    I must admit I do like the sound of a VTR with a nice set of pipes on it.
  10. I like the idea of the VTR.

    How may ks' has it got?

    I've read a few fix-it enquiries on these. I am wondering if they are as reliable as other hondas.

    Has anyone out there got one of these with high ks' that they have had for a while?
  11. At least it's a Twin.

    Congrats on the new toy.

  12. There a rubbish bike ........not.

    The ozfirestorm site has some great tips on how to improve it even further. Check it out.

    Take it easy.
  13. It's only got 20,000 km,s and a nice set of Remus pipes
  14. The only problem I see with a Honda V is that Honda's drive for engineering excellence probably smooths off that special feeling you get from a thumping V. But then again I expect they make up for it with superior performance. (all this crap from someone still on a restricted licence and who realy has no idea) :p :LOL: :LOL:

    Congratulations and welcome to the light. May the force be with you. 8)
  15. I was so close to buying an SV650!!

  16. Thank god you saw the light and went the Honda. The SV is a good little bike but you would have been left wanting....
