Just wanted to say hello and introduce mysellf.

My name is Farel (dirtybird is a name I have had for many years) and I am now the proud owner of a 2007 SV650. I did not start out with the goal of owning an SV but now that Ihave one I love it. To be honest I am an old 2 stroke guy with a stable of 15 2 stroke street and race bikes. I was looking for a push buttlonand go bike because of a bad kneee (2 strokes are alll kick start) and a deal came up for a 2007 SV650 and i bit. Well I am happy to saay that I love my SV!

Anyway, I look forward to riding this bike for many thousand miles.

DB

Nope I am in southern California.... in the great Orange County!

Been riding all my life.... started with old Japanese bikes, moved to an old school Harley and lived as a biker for about 10 years with some tough guys then I got tired of looking over my sholder and grew up. Moved back into old bikes but had been looking for something that had a starter. First I purchsed a new FJ1300 and rode it a bunch but it was too keavy to throw into corners like I wanted to. The 2007 SV650S came up for sale at $1500 (guy lowsided and broke the fairing, fender, foot brake/bracker and the wife made him sell it, what a deal, the bike has 20K on it and shines like new) and I am hooked. **** thing runs like a champ, I can run the canyons knee dragging (put tri-compound tires on it) and takes on the freeways with ease.

I love to ride, currently I am riding the SV most but when I am not on the SV I am onL

Get a VStrom650. Same engine, better starting point for that project.
