If that's what you want, you bought the wrong bike. You should just go get yourself a bigwheel. F-n squids. :roll: :roll:

LOL!
One of the things I love about the SV is that it does go slow so well. I can lug it down to 1K in first and it just keeps chuggin'. On my previous I4 it was clutch-brake-slip-rev which really wears on you after a few minutes in rush hour traffic.

I do that a lot when stuck in rush hour traffic. Since I have no tunes, gotta do something to amuse myself while waiting for Marge to realise the tunnel will not collapse if she drives through it :evil: Amazing how light the SV feels when doing stupid chit like that, almost like being back on my dirt bike as a teenager.

I can regularly get it to read 0 or 3, but I can never seem to get it to read 1 or 2 for some reason. Magnetic pick-up lag perhaps?

does it annoy anyone else when you see noob riders put their feet down like 20 feet before they come to a stoplight and then leave their feet down for half a block after they take off again.. i mean jeez, get a sense of balance!

my feet dont come off the pegs until the wheels stop rolling and they go right back on the pegs as soon as i let the clutch out to drive off again. :roll:

i'll leave my feet off while driving around, almost dragging them (yes, i'm aware of the possibility of clipping a bump in the road). but when there's a stop sign on every corner, it's just easier to keep the feet down.

I don't believe that is good for the engine, cause it ain't pumpin enuf oil

IIRC the owners manual calls for a minimum speed of 12mph in 1st gear, below that, the clutch should be partially disengaged

I'm sure you're correct; if anyone should know it'd be you. I don't make a habit of it though.
