I bought an 06 SVs as my first street bike and I'm very happy with it. No regrets on choosing the SV as a starter, I ride it all the time and it's a blast. I'm not tired of it by any means, but I know within the next few years I'll want to move on up in the ranks to a supersport. I really like the gsxr 750. Of course I could change my mind between now and when I'm actually ready to buy again - but if I were to go out and buy something right now to replace my SV it would be a gxsr 750. Love the way they look, the styling, and of course plenty of power. What would be (or was) your next bike after the SV?

2003 BMW F650GS, bought it Saturday and it's getting delivered tomorrow. I have back problems and I needed something more laid back. This is the only pic I have so far, it's from the dealer:

1st choice - 2004/2005 GSXR750


or
2000-2004 ZX-9R or 2003-2006 ZX-636R

Styling was the only consideration.

I am partial to the gsx750r mysef due to the fact I used to own one and totalled it many years ago. I will most likely never buy one again due to how many are out there. I am a person who does not go to the fold so my next choice being a R1 may not happen once again because they are really popular. My actual dream bike is the last 3 years of the CBR900rr, not sure why but I always loved them and almost bought one when I was looking at the SV. After working on the SV and building it myway I doubt there is another bike out there that will make me this happy. I am not in a hurry to hit 150mph and the sv does pretty good where I need it. Now if I win the lottery or some wierd stuff like that then I would most definately have a 05 R1, 99 900rr, along with a few rare litre bikes. I would also build my own bike using either a tt20b or just a 13b.

most likely something that will come home in boxes in the back of my truck, and sit forgotten in the corner of the garage for a decade or two

The Supermoto itch is driving me nuts! I almost bought one in '07, but the SV was cheaper. I've thought about trading for a new Husky, but i dont want to give up my SV. So when the 650 is paid off, i'm getting a second bike.

+1 on the Speed Triple....It's a wicked bike!!! I'll mod the SV over the next few years into a full on street fighter and buy the Speed Triple for the more refined rides. I also like the Thruxton for a bomb around town bike

Probably a DRZ400 for trail riding with the chance of riding an ocassional public road.

After that, Yamaha FJR1300ST

The supermoto itch got me too. I picked up a DRZ400sm a couple of weeks ago and am loving it. Best motorcycle decision so far.

Probably something along the same lines as the sv. Naked and somewhat sport oriented, but not entirely committed. I'm noncommittal.

i'd like to get a 08 gsxr 1000 and convert it to standard/naked style when my sv is paid off.
or an r1 and do the same thing.

or if i can find one at a good price, a 999r and naked it with an SSS.

Moto Guzzi California Special? I'm liking the lines.

Why do the same thing every time?
