I am a long time motorcyclist- I generally tour on my highly modded (for distance) 2003 Bandit 1200S, I also have restored many older motorcycles (I love the XS650's), and have kept two of those- a '75 restoration and a '79 Street Tracker.
Anyway, I had a XR650L for about 10 years- after not riding it much last season I sold it this spring, and now just purchased an SV1000S with a missing fairing. I have lusted after the SV's since my buddy had a yellow 650 in the early 2000's.
Now I have one, but in the 1K format! This is going to be my local riding for grins bike- the sound of this thing, the torque, and the stance is just a blast. Its insane (as most of you already know). I'm grinning right now thinking about the ride on the street yesterday.
I'll be looking for basic info, since I'm new to these, and also some ideas on what to do with the front end for lighting and/or fairing. The mini-fairing on there isn't even hooked up right now, and it looks light the lights on it would truly suck. It doesn't have a gauge cluster (although I fleabay-sourced one yesterday), nor does it have blinkers up front, so I need a few things.
