I discuss my 15K mile service in that article, including checking the valve clearance.

Re: You're right
I know, I took it as a joke, I was just clarifying for any of the other reader who might think I fit into the "sanctimonious prick" category of SV riders. Hah! Catch you later-

Nice article thanks - enjoyed reading that one. Now when are we getting the story JB promised us about his test of the race spec gsxr1000? In case he's forgotten pls jog his memory.

Re: here ya go
Hey Flaco,

enjoyed your articles about the mods to your well used SV. After 3 years of riding a Shadow 600 (which I still love and is for sale, but I don't really want get rid of it cause it's still a bike that gives me warm fuzzies) I too am now the owner of a nice shiny SV650 "S". Does this sound dumb? I bought it cause I thought it would be a great day to day bike(yes, that means I ride daily to work), though I knew I'd be sacrificing the most comfortable ergos your gonna get on any bike. Funny thing is, it IS a great day to day bike. You CAN actually control it at a snail's pace with no prob. Then, like wow, traffic clears and you go from 10MPH to 70MPH in like 3 seconds!!!! And let me hug my tree, I fill up the tank and discover that I averaged 58MPG. No wonder "they" hate us.

That is pretty damned funny! Seriously!!

But you can add me to the ranks of militant lovers of Suzook's SV650...

Re: SV Owners Collectively Awarded Sanctimonious Prick Award
Well there you go, you rode an FZ1 instead of a Bandit [I hope you washed your hands], While I admit stock the bandit does sound like a sewing machine, a pipe and snorkle-ectomy will cure that and give it some air. 4 cylinder vibes feel different than V-twin vibes, but unless the carbs are a mile off it shouldn't be too bad, seeing and hearing your bike from someone elses is fun, My bud has a 900 ninja that I've rode,,, just makes my bandit seem that much better

HEY! What about us RC51 owners?

Can't we be sanctimonious pricks too?

My RC51 is so cool, etc.

Re: So what does the award look like, anyway?
Nah, it looks like a Honda Hawk.
