Thanks. And off subject, nice site!
I agree 100%, if your’ riding pals are leaving you or “making” you keep up, you need to find somebody else to ride with.
But that’s not my point.
This is really only applicable if you plan on riding with others.
Having a bike that can’t keep pace could be a confidence crusher, morale buster for that individual.
It can also be a real danger for the whole group that’s adjusting their’ pace for a slower bike on a four lane highway with a hoard of clueless cages and semi’s ripping past at 70 plus mph.
I should have said, get a bike that you can run on the interstate and will be able to pace with the other riders you intend on riding with.
SV650 is a great bike. It takes a young man to ride one of those with the clip on bars! Lol.
