Yeah have had a PM convo with WayneL who's not far from me.
Where abouts is thunderace

Hopefully get the SV back on the road soon. Not been MOT'd for about 3 years now! Since its last MOT it's gained a GSXR750 front end and an Elka rear shock

Mines a curvy S. bought by the other half (Kithat) new in 2001 and then acquired by me about 4 years ago when I bought kitkat a Raptor 1000.
Was originally pearl lively yellow but is now Shimmerin green. Showing about 35k miles now.

In my defence I've not been off the road for those 3 years as I had a Benelli Tornado for a little while

Here it is


And yes the wheels are still mismatched like that, still trying to decide what colour to paint them!

Darker than kwak green, that picture was taken in the shade so doesn't do it justice really.

Been the last few years with having a baby (now 3 1/2) and busy lately with a mk2 xr2!

It should do, I've not ridden it in anger since fitting the rear shock
