Andy's K3 Suzuki SV1000S

I really miss the SV000, sold back in Feb 2006 - I wanted more of an all-rounder, something that'd carry me round Europe in comfort (knackered back!) and that swmbo would be happy on the back of......hence the R1200GS :-)

If finances didn't dictate that I couldn't have both I'd still have the SV - I thoroughly enjoyed riding her and had great fun on many rideouts with UK members of sv-portal.com from all over the country, as well as my mates locally.
Bought new March 2003, one of the first few in the UK - 15000 trouble free 'recreational' miles over the following 3 years (I did ride daily having a second bike, various singles, for day to day use to and from work etc......I say did, that was until my crash last year, one written off Mastiff 660 and I'm still on crutches 10 months later!), anyway..............

The most immaculate, well maintained and pampered 2003 SV1000S you'll ever see (probably:-)
