WTG! It's good to see people put down their ego and do something rational!

Did you buy it new? Slightly used? Anything aftermarket?

In my experience, especially now that I've ridden other bikes, the SV is a SUPERB choice for a first bike. Friendly power, light, capable, and tons of fun! I keep on thinking I'm going to be lustful as I ride more expensive, faster, and more refined bikes, and although each has some features I enjoy [mainly wind protection :) ] , I am always happy to get back to my comfortable, nimble little SV. And its so frickin' full of character it just makes me grin. I guess its a case of a bike well matched to the desires of its rider.

In all, I really doubt you will be disappointed with your purchase. Some thoughts for upgrades:

1. Please get a fender eliminator kit - for me...

2. A new pipe does wonders for the character of the bike and is much more gratifying.

3. I have nothing but good to say about my power commander III - what an awesome upgrade.

I hope everything goes well for you in your new venture! :::Stay safe:::
