H'lo folks. I'm Greg 'Scratch' Myles, from Annapolis, Maryland. I had a yellow '02 naked SV650 that I bought new and put 30K miles on, mainly daily commuting and weekend bombing around the backroads. My other bikes are an '01 GL1800 Gold Wing, '03 FZ1, and '06 WeeStrom. I sold the SV to a friend in 2007 to make room for the Wee (used that for a ride to Alaska/Yukon/NWT).

Though the VStrom is a great bike I missed my small, light SV so much that I scrounged around on Craigslist and finally found another one last Friday, in great condition with less than 8300 miles on it. Here's one not-so-good pic:

Farkling begins immediately.

Ahh WTH - why not make it a threesome?

Found another '02 for my other riding friend earlier this month. We're calling ourselves the Screaming Yellow Zonkers.

Saw that, thanks. Like to make it, prolly gonna ride down to Mortons that day instead to help a friend sell her Beemer.
What kind of Beemer? Heard J-Dog might be in the market for a f series 650.

Also does one of you work in DC? I see a 1st Gen yellow w/ topcase on 50 on occasion around 4:30 PM.

She's got an '02 K1200LT with about 50K on it. It's at Bob's right now getting a new clutch and that final drive thingie fixed. She hopes to unload it at Morton's open house this weekend.

As for the 1st Gen yellow w/topcase you've seen heading eastbound on 50 around that time of the day - yep, that's most likely me. I commute between Annapolis and Arlington.

Wish you luck on the sale.

If you see either a Black Buell 1125CR or a Black '09 Ninja 250 that is probably me. I think I missed the wave yesterday because I caught you out of the corner of my eye at the last moment, sorry about that I'll be sure to keep a closer eye out.

As will I.

Look for the Ogre on a black VFR with a funky looking windscreen. :)

Good luck with the sale Scratch, I'd try and help you out, but the K1200 is a wee bit large for the GF to be starting on. ;)

Dig that - my friend's a little small for her KLT as well IMO.

When I sold her my old '02 Yellow SV I added some homemade highway pegs; she put on different handlebars and a National Cycle barn door of windshield. Now she uses it as her touring bike.
