You should give away that BMW, too! You're eventually going to end up with a Ducati Panigale!

Nicely done! He'll remember that his whole life, even if he doesn't have that bike that long. Hopefully the BMW deal works out too. Then maybe go back for a ride with those guys.

Awesome!My son has been racing dirt bikes for 10 yrs or so.We bought a 350 Honda and ratted it out for his first street bike.



Recently he started looking at newer bikes.My buddy had this 06 3500 mile SV for sale.



He bought it.I cant wait to do a trip with him,great bike!

If the trips keep getting longer every time, I'm going to be riding half way around the world by the time I got to a Panigale. Great idea though.



pbarmy:

The 2 things I wish I done much sooner on my SV was the seat and the suspension. The Sargent seat was waaaaay better than the stock seat. You can pick up a used shock from a ZX10, ZX14, 636, GSXR, etc. and firmer springs for a couple hundred. Both of those upgrades made it a lot nicer so think about those things sooner rather than later.

Looks great with the 2 brothers exhaust, rear cowl and chin spoiler. Love it.
