i got my '02 sv650 from my brother who just didn't have the time to ride. I've had it for about 2 months now and been commuting ~140 miles a day on it on rural highways and country roads. first bike. so much fun and i can say i've truly found my passion. i was always into cars before this. i live in a small town at the border of the Pine Ridge indian reservation. This is such beautiful landscape and its so much more on a bike. Looking forward to many rewarding miles on this sv. what a bike!
