I'm sure many of us have fond memories of these bikes, I had a CBR600F as my first "big" bike and then a gsxr600 Telefonica soon after as I found the CBR a bit bland.... I ride a ducati now and have always wondered what the SV's are like as I've only ever heard good things about them, they definately look better fully faired!! If I could afford to run two bikes I reckon I'd get another GSXR :-) fun, quick and forgiving.... and would be great on the track I'm sure!

The sv is a great bike, had one for three years. Still have it as second bike. Covered 15,000 miles doing everything from commuting, fast road riding, light touring and even a few track days. Never had any serious problems. Changed for a zx6r 636 this year as I wanted more power for track and move into advanced group. The sv was a giant killer on track, on every trackday I done there was always one or two 600 or even 1000cc sport bikes that I used to be able to pass.
