Now some of you may be thinking, not him again i thought he just said he has bought a bike! Well I did. Did is the operative word in the sentence. When I arrived to ride home my lovely sv650 the man selling had kindly sold it to someone else. Even worse when considering I live 90 miles away and he hadn't told me a thing about the deal. So he had my deposit and had sold my bike. I said you bastard. Now where is my deposit. He then proceeded to reply with the following "I'm not to sure mate" What would you do in this situation? My reply was somewhat short but sweet. Give me my fcuking money now before i smash your door in and get it myself. This proceeded to an exchanging of less than gentleman like words. In the end i did get my deposit back . So, sod the SV lets go for an R6! What are these bikes like? Any known issues with the 99-02 models? Anyone on the forum got one? Would love to hear your stories of crap reliability or vice versa. Cheers, mikardo.
