Doing great. All the Gixxers are gone so I spend all my time over at SVR. I just browse here every now and then.
:cool

I started at SVR but kinda got stuck here, even before I bought the Gix - I come by SVR once in a while but mainly for specific searches :)

However, I won't be coming by any of these places often the next 6-7 months since I'm off to Iraq in 2½ weeks :scratch

Oh so this thread has been bumped up. OK. An update then.
That SV of mine in the picture up there is of course long gone since it got hauled away on a flat bed. It planted a seed of desire. Found one a few months ago for a track bike. Happened to be another 06.
Started like this.




Here's some progress pictures taking the front end and other parts off of the GSXR to swap onto it.

holy cow that looks fun. i am considering an SV650 as a 2nd bike. i bumped this to mess with SVS :lmao

im glad an old poster added updates to it though! i feel like people under estimate the power of the SV650.

Very cool bike. I have so many dreams about owning different Suzuki bikes. This type is definitely one to have.

everyone should have a 650 at least once. Such an awesome bike!

These bikes look badass naked. There's a cheap 03 sv1000 near me, and a friend who is interested in it. It only needs a new stator, but its pretty cheap. Will the sv1000 make a good starter bike? or should he stick to a sv650?
