hello from ireland

hi im richy from galway on the west coast of ireland. i have been riding bikes on and off for the last eight years. i bought a k5 sv650s over a year ago now and have spent the last few months customizing it. which was a lot of fun. i'm really pleased with how it came out. looks amazing, but il miss the buzz of working on it. heres a pic of it

That's a damn good looking bike, and some beautiful country.
I've always wanted to visit Ireland, but I'd feel like a poser...

Hello, sweet bike! Did the belly cowling come on it or is that aftermarket? I've always liked the SV650 but i can't help but feel like something is missing when they don't have that cowling, anyway love the bike and welcome! :-)

cheers. the belly pan is aftermarket. but its an oem part. so its colour coded to the bike. they dont cost too much. i paid around the 100 mark for it. well worth it, as i agree with you. the bike looks terrible with out it. but sexy with it

no bothers. the sv is a smashin bike. have driven loads of 600's, gsxr,r6.etc. all good bikes. but the vtwin motor is really good fun. lots of low down torque. the only thing that lets the bike down is the cheap suspention. but if ya find one with the upgrades already done. then thats a crackin bike to ride
