So long old friend...

The SV is going bye bye. I got offered something for her and it's the price I wanted, so it will be going bye bye sometime next week. I will dismantle her for all my expensive accessories that I will part out. An inline 4 600 will be my next step, I have no need for a 750 or greater. She was a blast and will be missed, she popped my motorcycle cherry.

I don't need the extra torque or horsepower with an upgrade to a 750. 1000 is out of the question, don't need it, don't want it. My insurance actually goes down if I get the 600 too, instead of up by like 300 more a year with a 750.

Yeah, where I bought the SV from has promised me a great deal on a Gixxer along the same lines the kind of deal they gave me for my SV. They also sell Aprilias. It's going to be real real hard for me to stay away from their 550 motards. I would kill for one of them, but it's not real practical for riding around town. The Tuono's are sweet too.

ahhh, thats really sad, I knwo you much you loved her!!

Awesome that you are getting a killer deal on a new bike tho!!!

Dont even show me that new honda, I was so pizzed when i saw it on the floor at bike week, if I had known they had the RR's coming out in MY FAVE color scheme ahead of time I would have gotten one of those!!!
(of course I dont really pay attention to the pics of the new ones, i have to see it in person!!)

The yami looks pretty sweet tho too!!

But personally, since I am a gxsrette now myself...go with the GSXR!!

That SV is sweet. I prefer the pointy over the curvy, but that lower fairing really pulls it together. The half-faired curvies just remind me of a skinny chick that's trying waay too hard.

I can't believe the SV is going bye already. I remember how much fun I had on my SV, but when I upgraded to an Inline 4 I realized how much I missed out on all those years with the V-twin.

All 3 bikes you've picked out are awesome. It seems like everyone has a GSXR. I really like the new R6 and the new 600RR.
When it comes down to it...all 3 bikes are going to give you about the same performance. Go with who ever gives you the best service and deal.

All kidding aside, test ride all 3 if u can. But the '07 CBR600 is getting rave reviews from the rags, its suppose to be the best 600 out for 07; I wouldnt mind having th silver/blue color scheme myself.

It was like in the $300s when I bought it, I think they went up considerably since I bought mine though.
