Hello, international friends!
Two weeks ago I stayed in the Jarama Circuit (surely one of the bests circuits around the world
) with the sv1000s. I had stayed seven years ago with a GSR 600 but only three rounds, and a half of the time raining, so, is like the first time here.
There is a hard and difficult circuit. I enjoyed so much with the SV. It was tired to go fast each round, and in several moments in curve I didn't knew if I could go faster (because the bike can) without crash.
In the straight line, I was only a little faster than the 600's 4-cyl, almost like its, and obviously the 1000 4-cyl flew. The SV did about 235kmh and I had to brake.
In open road, I use only the 20% of the bike's power, it is too much in torque and power. But in the track is the opposite. Above all in the straight, I changed gears at 9.000 - 10.000 rpms and I was slow even so, hehe.
Those are several pics of the day. You can coment it.
The knee didn't knock the floor, because I wasn't too moved in the seat (I don't know how to say it in English, in Spanish is "descolgarse", = to go away from the seat in one or another side).
