I traded bikes with a guy for part of ride. He had a SV1000s. It was an absolute blast. Got me thinking that I needed a new bike. I wanted a Vtwin for the power delivery, sound, and overall thin feel.
There is a naked SV1000 for sale on C-list in Colorado right now: http://denver.craigslist.org/mcy/3892620817.html
Or keep on the lookout for a Superduke or Tuono. More money, but probably better bikes.
