Hello from Melbourne
Hi I'm a Canadian in Australia, old rider, many bikes over the years, currently ride a 2001 GSXR1300 in Toronto. Looking at the SV over here after trying 1250S Bandit, CBR1100XX, VTR1000...got interested in the TL1000S but, the rear suspension requiring an Ohlins or Bitubo shock limits the selection. I'm trying to figure out the differences between the various SV1000S models/years/riding position/hp engine changes etc. There are more 2003 K3 versions for sale cheaper, the later years go up in price.
I will be doing shopping trips with my wife on the back so the lower seat height and more relaxed raised bars is desirable for us. I am looking around at the threads to start getting educated, if you could point me to the threads, I would appreciate the help. Maybe I should put a window on a naked version? Cheers Clive!
