Nope...got kid duty tomorrow. Plan on balancing my TBs with my newly made manometer and takin the kiddo to the batting cages and park. Hopefully I'll have a chance to get out on Sunday, but weekdays are usually better for me.

You got plans? Where ya goin? I really enjoy that Powerhouse and wanna take the road that tees off at the powerhouse to see where it goes.

That road goes to the top of the 4 lanes.

Is it in good condition like powerhouse/auberry? So that road is the Auberry turnoff at the top, huh? cool. One guy I met said it goes up and meets a bridge and something about a market that sells delicious chicken...I got lost after he told me the second turn..lol. I've also wanted to take Tollhouse from 168 to see where it goes.

I've spent my life on cruisers, so learning that a bike can lean that far is still hard for me. I'm getting better though.

Wow. That was amazing! I'm also amazed at the grip that bike gets. They are using slicks aren't they? I can't really tell.

yeah, they look like slicks when he's waiting to start. Also, you see he's using his toes as curb-feelers through the turns. I would love to learn to handle my bike like that...would definitely make me feel more secure.

Sorry my SV Haver friend:)

LOL....must have ready someone else's. The image looks skewed. At a quick glance, it almost looks like a Yamaha.

SVs rule! BTW....love the silver frame.....the 2004 is a sweet bike...mine's yellow!

Isn't there a BARF forum for SVR? I know they have a SoCal one. I'm on the standard and SoCal....although I don't really post anymore.

I have more pics of it in my album. My ID on SVR is the same as here so you can see pics in my garage on that site as well. I dunno about BARF...just recently learned what BARF was...lol. yeah, I love my SV. I'm pretty loyal to Suzuki anyway because I've never had any issues. I've had 2 other bikes - Intruder 750 and Sa***e 650 - both were at least 10 years old when I got them and I sold them with 50-70k miles on each, still running strong.

I gotta look up where you're at...we'll have to hook up for a ride sometime.

I hate slow speed...anything on my SV. Practiced on the MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) course on my ex's GSXR and did soooo much better. I think the gearing and power pulses of the V-twin make it a little more tricky. Constantly feels like my bike is going to stall. Strangely enough, I don't have the same issues on my SV650S (different gearing and somehow all around smoother).

People who can do those crazy courses amaze me.
