Default Hey guys, I'm new!

Just wanted to pop in and say Hello! I used to ride small bikes to and from school when I was 17, but haven't ridden for the past ten years. I have, however, just passed my direct access (two weeks ago!!) and bought myself a 2000 SV650S with fairing. I am chuffed to bits with the bike. There are a few things wrong with it that I never noticed when I bought it, but for 1600, and my first big bike, I can't scoff really! In any case, I look forward to meeting you all (I'm now going to set up my profile), but have attached a pic. (P.S. Thats my Mum in the pic with me!! )

What? Completely new? You're quite tall for a newborn baby aren't you.

PS Nice cheesy grin in photo - full marks for looking chuffed.
If an SV650 has a flat tyre in the forest and no-one is there to blow it up, how long will it be 'til someone posts that the reg/rec is duff and the world will end unless a CBR unit is fitted? A little bit of knowledge = a dangerous thing.
