Sorry guys, I could NOT resist this.... Guy selling is PS1000 with a 1080 kit on the Classifieds.
Tell me this doesn't sum up the trouble us SV guys have, lol. All in good fun, nothing against the guy or the bike.

Ben, you said everything that I wanted to say but just didn't have the words to convey it. I like the builders class that it is. There are many that can make an SV go as well. Same power? No, not necessarily but the smaller GSXR is mighty inviting. Of course my delema is whether or not to go mini GSXR or go full on middle weight

Damn everyone sure got quite after an SV smoked the field at New Jersey.Could it be that after all that it's the rider not the bike that wins races because it sure seems that way to me. I won't be making it beyond Summit so normalcy will be restored along the Mid Atlantic region.Regardless thanks to those of you that were willing to accept me and/or my bike.I had a great time and if ever in Colorado look me or The Motorcycle Roadracing Association up cause we've got some bitching tracks/riders too.

It was quiet before this past NJMP weekend so it had nothing to do with Lil Mazz and others smoking you on their SV650s. :)  Why do you keep saying people aren't accepting you?  It's been established multiple times now that you and your bike are okay.  Yes it out classes the SV but it is legal.

Also NJMP is not a HP track so of course SV is going to be very good.

Seriously, didnt mean to whine but it just seemed everyone or most were of the opinion that an old guy riding a cool or at least different bike was wrong.I've raced Hawks, SV's, TLS's TLR's GSXR's and CBR's a BMW Boxer and more than a few Ducati's when it came to a retirement bike a Pierobon was it.I'll miss you guys but hope to see you at Summit one last time.Cheers

The bike is very cool, and everybody likes to see new riders at the track whatever you're riding.  The discussion has nothing to do with the rider.  After all, bikes are classified by the machines ability, not the rider's ability.   Have fun riding that thing.  It's a work of art!

Just for the record, I don't own that bike.  Ben Probst built and owns it. He is kind enough to lend it to us to race. And just for perspective he can put a whole bike together for $12-18,000 depending on how much bike you want. Engines are also available.

Hey What happened with this bike at RA? I heard there was some drama about the way it was stroked??

Probst said it is 580cc, not 565.  I heard that from Rick Breuer.  He was not making an official statement though.  I just happened to be there when he made the comment.

Did someone protest?

Yes.  I don't know who it was though.
