Hi.

I joined the site just before the end of last year, so I am pretty much a new member. I really appreciate the good attitude and friendly atmosphere of this site. There is a lot of useful information here and some very knowledgeable members.

Thanks

All righty then,
HI,
I've been mostly just lurking, haven't had much intellegent to say on topic as I do not acually have my bike yet. I purchased an SV1000S at an insurance auction a few weeks ago and am still waiting for it to be shipped 3/4th of the way across the USA here. I believe it has been duct taped to the back of a '64 VW microbus and is being driven by a 19 year old who has to stop every 2 hours to pee or for more beer. Every 3rd day he must stop to have cylander # 3 replaced. Oh well, the price was good. I guess I could have paid with money or paid with time. And this is probably the best time of year to be waiting for a bike. I was at the local Suzuki dealership last week getting parts for my old bike. They were just opening and were moving some of their inventory out for display. Then they moved out a silver SV1000S that was there for repair. The whole side was ground down from the fairing to the tail lights. Poor guy had lost the front end in the sand left on the streets from the snow a few weeks back. This is the best time of year to be without a good bike in Washington.

I've been on here a relatively short amount of time but I am quite a post whore. I've been unemployed for 4.5 months, but I just got a job yesterday so maybe I'll tone it down a bit now.

This site is absolutely the best SV resource I have found to date. I agree that some of the threads tend to digress somewhat and that does make searching for info tougher, but still - top notch site. The SoCalSVriders site is good also for some of us USA people trying to find online vendors, but this site has the better info and feels more like a family to me - IMHO.

About me, for those who don't know, I have a silver sv1000s. I crashed on in August, but I had to replace it with another. I love this bike! I am a 33 year old Floridian (12 month riding season here - it was in the 80's today!) I still have some squidly tendencies, but I try to keep it on two wheels mostly. Still can't help a wheelie every once in a while.

I guess if dadmun posts that he is a new member, then I am too. I am currently a student at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Unfortunatly I have to grow up by May 7th, because I am graduating and have to find a real job.

I have been riding bikes almost all my life, but have only been on the street for about 6 years. Also, I like to pretend that I am a DIYer, so the more great ideas you guys post with good pictures and instructions the more I will attempt. I love working on cars, bikes, and anything that is mechanical. The only problem is I always bit off more than I can chew, and find myself isolated in my garage for hours on end trying to figure out what the hell went wrong.

I also want to thank BJAM, Skidz, Flipper, and anyone else who is responsible for creating this site, and more importantly this community.

This site rules! I'd like to think I've made some friends here and want to say thank you to all those responsible for this site and for not kicking me off when I make no sense.

If this was posted on the Z1000 forum, it would be deleted

Hi 2 all,

I am waiting for my SV1000s to be delivered today, part x'ing a Monster S4 in for it, the Duke has broken down 4 times in 2000 miles!

Various add ons are waiting in the garage for the bike to arrive, including Quill T3 cans, a TRE, a rear number plate hanger, and a carbon hugger is on the way from NWS.

The SV will be my 72nd bike in 22 years, yep I know - very sad, hopefully I will keep hold of the SV for a decent time!

See ya

Ah yes. "grtpmkn" is the license plate I have on my orange '96 Stang that we dubbed the Great Pumpkin. It has kinda stuck ever since for ANY message forum I have been to. Here is what he looks like Kroakjr, so that you will recognize him next Halloween when you are waiting in the pumpkin patch.

BTW Bish, that is a REALLY cool link you attached...thanks!

Hi all. A Dutch SV rider here. Got on this forum trough a link on another bike forum. Although i haven't got a SV1000 , i still think this is a great place for SV riders to gather and share info on mods and technical stuff. Already used this site a lot to find SV related information and so far i still found what is was looking for. Keep it up!

77,9 hp at the wheel of a 650...
