About the only thing I liked was the engine on the street. Plus, the hydraulic clutch was a *****. Never knew from one day to the next whether it would slip or not.

I would never consider saying that the SV1000 can womp the corners. It was decent, but never great. The daytona is far better in every way except torque from the engine. That's it. The SV could probably do better with a new front end, but I wasn't willing to drop the money on a budget bike that was never going to be very good. I put on a GSXR shock, but that only helped by making the rear end stiffer and reducing the tendency to run wide.
The the hydro master/ slave sucked, I found it very in consistent ... But who uses the clutch anyway. Still have spares lol. as for the suspension a zx eBay special in the rear, gold valves in front droped 7mm through the tripples and race tec springs transformed the handling. I've never been FAST at the track on it but the bike was very confidence inspiring and I wasn't afraid to lay it down. I can already tell the Daytona is superior in every handling aspect and I haven't even properly set up the suspension yet! Still, I feel my lap times will increase because it's soooo pretty . I've always wanted a sv650 for dedicated track bike but don't make it out enough to justify it.

Never looked back (and the crappy rearview mirrors don't help ! )

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !

Well I don't have any pics of my first bike, a 2005 Kawi EX500, but it wasn't much to look at anyway, ha ha. I bought it new in 2006 and sold it last year after getting my new 2009 FZ6R seen here:
