Did the deal today. Saw a nice SV650 11reg 1600 miles. Nealry a straight swap. Nothing too extreme but wanted a bike I can throw around a bit whilst there is still some stretch left in the old legs! Have enjoyed the 4000 miles on the Sporty - sorry to see it go but did not really find I needed 2 feet forward bikes as they were used for the same sort of ride. Anyway, there was no way I could part with the C800! On the test ride I was impressed how the V-Twin pulled the lightweight bike quickly up to 70 in 3rd and the bends were nice and easy. I did not push it too hard without my leathers on. Arrives sometime next week and the orange Yank moves off to pastures new. These were taken at the dealer after the test ride:

Lucky you Blues, little jealous to be honest. I have been after a second bike for about a year but just haven't seen something that has jumped out at me. If I didn't have the money I am sure I would spot one every other day.
Will you still keep the DL now that you have your new baby?

Signed up for the DL for 3 years so that's still with me. The 3 balance out quite nicely really - a poser, an explorer and a hoot! I do think Suzuki could sponsor me mind! To be perfectly honest Mrs. B doesn't usually like anything that does not look like the Intruder so when she saw the SV and said , 'That's not bad actually' - I did it quick before she changed her mind! Ah well - I spent many hard working years saving for my retirement and this is it! When I've gone to the big Suzuki showroom in the sky you young'n's will stiil be biking so I'm gonna get it while I still can!

Good choice Blues, a guy near me has just got an identical bike to that and when I see it I always think how nice the bike is. Not too extreme but something you can get on and scratch a bit .... enjoy matey !!

you'll love it mate , i've had mine since 2003 and wouldn't part with it for the world, a good all round bike the 650s the only reason i got the 1000 was coz i had a bandit 600 and wanted something bigger at the time.but now i'd have gone the 650 route for sure.

Bike arrived today - said fairwell to the Harley(wow it was loud as it went up the ramp into the van). Love the SV - permanent smile at the moment! Above 9,000 rpm makes a lovely sound going through the gears. Took the Intruder out yesterday - 2 very different machines, both special in their own way....good old Suzuki, makes a lot of people happy!

Really pleased that your pleased John, its a lovely bike Harley sold. 3498837457
I like Suzuki's but that may be because I have had a lot of them. I like the familiarity of buying a brand as you get to know them and that really helps when you do your own maintenance.

I'll probably keep it stock for a while. Quite fancy the lower fairing and seat cowl. Had a Scorpion on my Bandit once and after a while the drone irritated me, so I'm not sure on the SV exhaust - took it to the red line a couple of times and it sounds very nice, to say the least. Not struck on the Sportmax tyres but will have to wait until they wear out to change - spent up this year! Love the way it rides - light and exciting to handle. Acceleration is pretty impressive for a 70 bhp bike - loads of torque from the V-Twin. Main problem is I can't get enough of it at the moment - fuel is costing me a bomb! When I went out on the Intruder today after about 500 miles on the SV in a couple of weeks, I was not sure what to expect. I need not have worried - it was surprisingly nimble and still puts a smile on my face. My only problem is the bloody weather!! Saw a nice 1000 like yours today with juicy cans - sounded awesome!
