Thanks, Yes that is the SV.

I went up on May 5th for a practice session (Still in Primer). I hope to be going up on June 1st if the weather clears up some. Then from June 9th to the 12th, I will up there.

That bike is hot!!!!! I bet it's lots of fun on the track! I was riding my wifes SV earlier this year and I love that damn bike. It handles so good as compared to my R1. After I got back on the R1 I felt like I was on a pig of a bike. But after about 1/2 an hour I remembered why I loved my bike so much. Pure speed.

The thing feels so "flicky" compared to my 1k. And it is more forgiving on the throttle...but not too much. I pitted out at Loudon and banged Second going down the back straight and the thing lifted right up. The only thing I wish is that the brakes had bigger pistons in them.

It is very fun at the track. I am thinking of rigging up a light, blinkers, taillight and some kind of mirror to allow me to ride it on the street without having to go fully back to stock.

Taz,

Great job on the paint!

Is that a Penske shock you have on the back? How do you like it? Been thinking of either one of those or an Ohlins for my 1100.
It is a Penske. I have only ridden it up and down my street but so far it feels great.
