I passed a black SV this morning on the way to work - rider in black gear with backpack. Natchez trace near West End.

I was riding a blue '08 SV with windscreen and tailbag. Silver helmet and jacket. Anyway, I don't see many SV riders in this area -- care to ID yourself??

It was not me but I ride around the Leipers Fork area when I can. Silver 1K naked. Hopefully soon I will have a weekend off and the weather will cooperate and I can get out for a ride.

yellow SVS here, (soon Ill be around again). There is a new guy from vanderbilt here check out the nashville thread. I ride all over, I actually have to go to the Van hospita to pick up meds weekly, and prefer to take the SV since it is a fun lil trip

Hey it was me. i live off of the natchez trace blair blvd intersection. i remember passing you and giving the wave as usual then had to do a double triple take. i was surprized it was an sv. by the way on your bike i noticed the badge area. it just looked like a red spray paint spot with dripping. looked cool.

Hi! Yeah, that "badge area" is actually a dent from the handlebars leftover from a wipeout. I thought about repainting or replacing the tank, but then decided the dent would help me stay humble! So I painted it into a bleeding wound and left the dent.

PM me if you want to go riding sometime soon. I will be working on the bike this weekend, but after that I should be good. What year is your bike?

I live off of Hillsboro road on Del Rio Pike -- not too far from downtown Franklin. But I work behind Centennial Park, so I'm in your area at least 3 times a week.

I'm a fairly new SV rider too -- just got the bike back in August. I've ridden with guys way more skilled then me and also riders less experienced or just much more cautious. Anyway, cool if you don't want to ride together, but I'm not someone to push anyone else to ride harder than they want to. (I've been in that situation and gotten hurt!)

Post up in the other nashville forum to keep it going. Folks try and link up a fair amount when the weather breaks.

I live near Percy Priest but I go to Leipers Fork for lunch on the weekends whenever I get the chance and then do some exploring. Keep an eye for a silver sv 1K naked or a blue ZRX 1200. Dat be me.
