OK, sounds like several of us have an SV in the garage alongside our FJR so post your pictures here.

All models of SV 650 and 1000 are welcome to post up.

This is mine - 04 SV 650s purchased used three months ago. It has Dale Walker Holeshot high mount exhaust can that sounds great, undertail, LED turn signals, frame sliders and Puig double bubble "Race" windscreen.

This little V-twin is Great run to ride and a big change from the FJR.

I frequent www.svrider.com forum for most info.

No Dude...funny thing is that FJR is the only forum I belong to. I do love my SV but have been thinking about replacing it with an RC-51. Any thoughts on that?

That SV has a set of Convertibars with less than 20 miles on them, including extended clutch cable and stainless brake lines. Anybody interested?

It also has a still good engine. Not much else worth salvaging.

That was my daughter Danielle. She had a few minor bruises, but walked away. Thanks for asking. Good gear saved her from some serious hurting.

I was planning to fix the SV, but the more I looked at it the worse it got. The frame is cracked where the swingarm attaches, the rear subframe is squashed, and all of the plastic is damaged.

Nothing directly. I've read a lot about them as well as the Aprilia RSV1000. I've also read a ton about the new Buell and sat on all of them and ridden none of them . . . yet. The Aprilia is very, very focused. The RC is faster, heavier, and thirstier. More focused than the SV as well. Still trying to figure out where the new 1125 Buell fits in. I'd ride any of them in a heart beat.

So I have to ask... do your SV secret society have a secret handshake like this secret society does?
