Managed to get out for a blast on the SV around the New Forest; little bit chilly, but sunny and dry hence i grasped the opportunity. Nice ride, minimal traffic and huge sight lines for overtaking around the forest (ironically), but, i'm just not 'in love' with the bike anymore R1 when i come back from UAE around March/April 2020 so options are keep the SV until then and just see it as a tool to get to work and back avoiding traffic, or option 2 is go for something like a CB1000R; ie, a middle ground between this(72bhp) and an R1(160+?) which I'll then sell on for the R1 My Dad suggested that I'd cherish the bike if I didn't have the car I have which may be true. But i drove to work on a night shift(2230 or so) a few days ago through relatively residential areas though of course, totally quiet. Car was in sport mode, i had the sunroof open for the burbles and i was using the flappy paddles and couldn't help but grin That's what the bike used to do Today even while over taking it crossed my mind, 'would prefer to be in the car'
