Sweet SV650


Pretty sure it's an SV650, but don't know much more than that. Well I know I love it and I'm embarrassed to say I recognise the Marauder tank badge that's taken from one of Suzuki's pointless, water-cooled cruisers. Anyone out there no more about it? This photo was lifted from Raff P's very good, Italian http://streetracker.blogspot.com/ Don't know where Raff found it. G

Black rims are the law.

I think you'll find that it's none other than "Jersey Jake" Johnson on one of the "factory" Suzuki racebikes. They decided to brand the flattrackers as Boulevards in some misguided attempt to fight HD on their "home turf". Don't get me started...
But the SV is wicked cool, they rolled it out late in the season as an alternative to the TL1000.

He may have found it on my site, as it's my photo . . . (grumble, grumble)

It is indeed Jake Johnson on the 1000cc Suzuki "Boulevard," at the Hagerstown half-mile in 2007.

WHat was Ben saying about the web and copyright a few posts ago? Sorry Tim. Time to start watermarking?

No worries, it's just tough to figure out the share/protect balance sometimes. On the upside, seeing the pic reminding me of standing there--that bike sounds righteous with Jersey Jake stretching the cables!

Hi, i'm Raffaele from streetracker.blogspot.

If you look my site you can see that i always write the link from where i try the news. May be possible sometimes doesn't happen. But also i think that the web is a place for sharing informations and news. My are available to all.

Then, your intellectual honesty will allow you to use them in the way you feel more correct.
