    I have a friend who used to have an RC30, lovely piece of kit in all respects!

    As for me I have an SV650S K5 which is a joy.

    Exactly what I'm buying at the end of the month. Only 2900 on the clock and getting it off a mate for a steal at £2k! I can prob ride it to work and back (75 miles per day)for a year and still sell it for more than I'm buying it for!

    Test tomorrow! No idea what to get though. Been riding around on a ER-5 which is nice so may try and pick one of them up or go for an ER-6.

    Everybody will be scrambling to do their test this year before the new test comes in no doubt
    I am still on my Kawasaki ZR7-S my previous and first bike was an ER-5. It was good for my extended learning but you still get done by a half decent car.

    I keep hearng people mention the new test, any idea what it involves or what the changes are?

    ER-6 it may be. Also while I'm asking silly questions is it possible to get a full screen without getting a fairing? My bike will probably be my long distance runner so I want comfort but do keep being told that if I get a fairing and drop it there is going to be much crying by me. My head gets buffeted enough as it is when I go on dual carriages so not really wanting a naked bike!

    Well done as well You'll have to let me know how it is as I've been looking at one of them too, though not the S. Are you going brand new or second hand?

    Have to ask, how is it then Elky?
    After setting my heart on getting an SV650 a friend of my sister told me he is selling his 2006 Z750s with hardly any miles on it for 2.5k & would throw in a jacket and trousers for £100. Too good an offer to pass up so going for that later this week.

    Amazing mate. Was out for a few hours Saturday and loved it! It definitely has some oomph about it!

    Took a wrong turning this morning though to work and ended up in Bognor Regis when I should have been heading towards Arundel - oops!

    FFS. How many accidents have been cause by people hesitating at junctions? Possible a few minor shunts up the backside.

    How many fatalities have been caused by NOT hesitating at a junction?

    It really annoys me, my daughter was pulled up for driving too slow past a school when the kids were coming out.
