The pickup is not in the garage but there are three bikes and a car all jammed into a one car garage! Gotta see it to believe it.

They discontinued the standard SV1000 last year. And it ain't coming back.

I actually think the new GSXR1000 might be pretty handsome if they ditched those ridiculous graphics.



The new SV1000S looks very interesting, but if they didn't alter the ergos, I won't be interested for long.



The current version is too much of a stretch with too-low and angled-back and down bars, at least for someone under 6 feet tall.

Seriously, I have no problem with scooters. I spent many fun hours on a Lambretta scooter back in the 60's. You had to pull the plug and clean it with crocus cloth each time you started it!



I just don't care for them now. But if people like them, hey, who am I to complain? At least they ain't driving cages.



But it might be fun to start a new Mods and Rockers conflict to replace the old boring over hashed sportbikers vs cruisers conflict.

Or over 6 feet tall. It's hard to believe that Suzuki found it more profitable to keep the uncomfortable S model over the more comfortable and practical plain jane SV. I've seen some of the new 2003 SV1000 bikes for sale for less than 6 grand on trader online. If I had a spare 6K I'd like to own one. VWW

I'm an old rocker from way back, I even have a Triumph, We'll just have to remember to call them "fookin' hairy poofs" instead of posers.

And what is the "Down with Honkies" thing anyway? What are ya, some kinda whacko Utah 'Nam vet unaboinger or something?
