The SV is an awesome bike. You won't go wrong if that's what you decide on. I've owned everything from dirt bikes to cruisers to fully faired 2 wheel land yachts. By far I love my SV the most. You won't go wrong. Welcome to SVR.
I just got an SV a few weeks ago and love it. I don't do any riding on the track yet, this is my first street bike, and I prefer it over the I-4 600cc bike I rode the other day for my brother in law. They're a blast.
