Ya they are quite powerful. But they are large, uncomforrtable, terrible MPG, handling isnt all that great etc... Just a big fast ***** extension bike. I will probably switch to a hog once my back starts going and I need something more comfy. That and I can barely fit my wallet in the storage compartment.

What got me about the Ninja was the torque, and the position I had to sit in. I felt like I was barreling down the highway on a missile, with no controls. I took a hard left turn from a standstill and the bike promptly popped a wheely and the handlebars started to get away with me, and i barely touched the throttle. That bike, IMHO, does not belong on the street. It belongs on a closed track.

No insurance, so I haven't officially taken her out. I rode her when my buddy got her so It's not like we aren' t acquainted already.

The pictures dont do that colour justice. Ive seen it in person and I think its a sweet colour.

As for the SV 650. That is a very nice bike. I like how it has somewhat of a street-fighter look to it. But you are seriously gonna have to do something about that mudflap in the rear. I bought an LED kit for my bike. Which integrated the brake light and turn signals into one. So basically half my tail-light will start blinking yellow when i signal left or right. You then follow that with a tuck'n'tidy kit for your licence plate. And your bike will have one sweet looking ***

Yeah, that's the first upgrade I'm getting for it is an Evotech tail tidy. Then I'm going to save up for a new IXIL exhaust over the off season.

Holy double post Batman!

Anyways, I rode my buddy's Yamaha R1 today, and I really didn't like it. It felt awkward leaning that far forward over the tank, it felt weird having the footpegs behind my bum. Sure, it was fast and powerful, but I just didn't feel very confident on it being leaned over that far.

That's my general beef with street bikes in the first place. I like forward controls, and leaning back. I understand WHY they are like that given their racing origins, I just don't get why anyone would want to contort themselves like that.

Yeah, I rode it for maybe 5 minutes, and my back was already getting tired after that, I couldn't imagine doing that for an hour or more. I couldn't wait to get back on my Gladius.

Generally you're not supposed to ride a bike like that way anyways.... I guess thats part of why crotch rockets are so dangerous because you're leaned so far forward. I can't really do it. I had my buddies gixxer 1k up to about 100 and I just didn't feel safe at all. It's pretty scary looking down and seeing the ground go by that fast in that weird position....

Haha irony?

I am going to have to agree with Evil on the beef with street bikes. I like the old classics and I like setting upright.
