  1. Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who's ear I have been chewing recently over the prospect of riding my new SV650s... :oops:

    I really appreciate all the help and advice offered, I've gotta admit (as everyone I talked to probably knows) I was absolutely shi**ing myself over riding the bigger bike just in case I did a mono and dropped it - or had all the mad thoughts running through my head as to what could happen... :shock:

    But once I got on it on sunday - I understood why everyone just said "get on it - you'll be fine"...I felt so nervous climbing on, but once I felt the difference in the 650 to the 250, I felt so much more secure on the road...

    So just wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped me through talking about their experiences and also giving me advice - there really was nothing to worry about - but at the time I was very nervous...its seemed like such a big jump up - but the transition has been relatively smooth - obviously I'm still learning how to handle the bike, but I already feel relatively comfortable on it... :grin:
  2. I've loved hearing about the SV plans :)

    So are you bringing your new baby to a coffee any time soon?
  3. I'll probably be there this friday.... :grin:

    Its funny, everyone at work has no interest in bikes, but they've all been drooling all over it this morning...I love it :grin:
  4. At least they can appreciate such a fine bike! Who wouldn't drool over it?!
    Glad to hear you feel comfortable on it...enjoy! :grin:
  5. Thanks again for picking it up for me... :grin:

    There was no way I woulda got on it in that kinda rain...was nervous enough getting on it in sunny conditions on the sunday hehe....

    You are a treasure.... :grin:
  6. I was doing fine until a guy pulled up next to me on a fine gixx thou'
    We had a little chat, then when the lights changed....I stalled :shock: :oops:
    I was so embarassed...I thought he would lane split and take off...but he was waiting at the next set of lights for me....to ask how long I had the bike!
    I was so embarassed! How uncool!..Oh well..at the next set of lights, I made sure I took off quickly and with confidence...well as much as you can have in pouring rain! :grin:
    Tis all good.....nice yellow...def. easy bike to see in foul weather!
    Bring on the road trip....oh..the GP! :grin:
