this is the SV
i bought it in 2003 as an ex-demo bike
http://www.streetfighters.com.au/forum/upload/fimpbikes SV650 rear.jpg
its got noisy big-ends, needs a rebuild but all the $$$ at the mo is getting thrown at the new bike while the naughty SV sits the corner
it pretty stock, but runs
- acerbis cylopes headlight
- chopped mudflap with a little ally license plate bracket i knocked up
- flattened RHS tank (damn gravel:()
- protaper bar
- under bar mirrors
- peg jack up plates i got made (up and back 25mm)
- MIVV carbon slip-on can
- diablos f/r
it want bad in january, damn its a fun bike
pretty much just throw it around like a big dirtbike
those skinny tyres make it easy as pie to change direction
sadly i think it'll have to go once its rebuilt
but not until i have thoroughly "run it in" :D

this is the cylopes, i run it without the numberplate thingy
i think the number plate border on being a fairing (and theyre gay as!!)

my girl is a photographer
worked for models aus/stickybeek last year
but the owner is a wanker, glad i never met him actually
he is famous for just stepping on everyone on his way up
so guess who's girlfriend told him to go shove his camera up his......
anyways, they needed a bike for some lady (the one in the photos) one day
so i took the car to work and let the magic unfold ;)
the dickhead didnt let me have any of the shots, so i just stole em of his site!!
paterson, thats it
that ride was hilarious, my first poker-run
it was with all these old ducs and triumphs
couldnt believe how hard the old guys rode those beautiful old bikes
i'd be too scared i'd bin it!
if u'all wanted to do the model-shots i could probably tee it up
how many of ya are in NSW??
Can i get one with her straddling me? [:p]
Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please :D
