Ed.
Hey. Well, I don't pixel at all nowadays, and this is why:










It's a 1999 Suzuki SV650X (Naked), 72bhp, 50ft/lbs, 650cc.
Considering she only weighs 165kg, that means 129mph (From a standstill in less than 10 seconds), 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, and I'm 17 years old. toothygrin.gif

This'll be a bit like MIV's topic for his Golf - Just updated with random happenings to do with it. I've recently got myself a rather tastefully paying job as-well, so updates will probably be a plenty... Enjoy toothygrin.gif

So when're you popping up the A45 then?
Ed.
When I get paid by said job - This is the month I've gone from leaving Tesco and joining the new company, so I'm at this precise moment more poor than Africa toung.gif

Maybe you should pop down, as My house is on the A45...
Curtis
Maybe you should remember i sold my car for 400 after being deemed unfit for the road wink.gif

exactly the part i mean. wink.gif toung.gif
but indeed, don't fix what isn't broken, if you don't want to do it. wink.gif xd.gif
Ed.
the stigster
isn't your front tyre the wrong way round????
Ed.
Alot of people ask that, and the awnser is no, trust me, i've been paranoid and checked it out myself a few times - it's an odd design that looks like it shouldn't work, but does very well - Michelin Road Pilot 2's.
That doesn't help my paranoia either though, because in the marketting photo's you'll find of them on google and such, they've turned them around so they look better xd.gif
Ed.
Slight update on the SV650.



My bike, to comply with British laws was restricted to 33bhp, via a set of washers in the inlet manifolds, just after the carburettor. Legally, I must have these fitted untill two years after I passed my test. In it's 33bhp state, in comparison, it would keep up happily with a Ford Fiesta Zetec S, which are quite quick in their own right. But hardly spectacularly quick.

Well, I removed the restrictions yesterday and went for a 60 mile hard ride around my town. I can happily say, 125mph with a pillion (Someone sitting on the back for those of you who don't know) is completely possible, and the front end of the bike will sit happily 45 degrees in the air for 3 gears, up until 90mph without breaking a sweat.
I think this bike may soon turn into a bit of a hooligan machine...
Henrique.
you're crazy if you asking me
Ed.
Why's that Mr. Hen?
Daniel.
Ben, I love the bike!

btw I forgot, but how old are you?

s**t photo from a mate's camera phone toung.gif




Got bored, doing rolling burnouts and drifts on wet grass outside his flat, then this happened toung.gif

I've still got clumps of mud in my bar ends and all up the engine casing; Got asked at work the other day why there were footprints on the petrol tank too laugh.gif
Helmasaur King
Very cool, good bicycle
Victor.
Stop hooning around and drift it toung.gif

i still seriously think your front tyres the wrong way round. there designed to push the water out to the sides and being that way round draws the water to the middle and then you aquaplane (cant spell its about 12:30am here...)

seriously if you lose control when its wet and its because of lose of steering.... i warned you

You're like the 19th person to comment on that - They're on the right way round, trust me, I'd be dead by now if they're not. I've been on my hands and knees about 4 times to reassure myself that the arrows point the right way on the tires; it's just an awkward looking design
Josh
i'd be willing to say ed knows more about his bike than we do
Ed.
Kaboosh - just hit my 3,000th mile in 2 months of having her on the road - that's 29,004 miles on the clock toothygrin.gif

On another note - Cruising at 130mph for the best part of 20 miles is:
A- f**king expensive, burnt off half a tank like that;
B - Not good for motorcycle health, at least on something as small as a 650cc, it was sitting in 6th gear at 9,500rpm for a large portion of the time;
C - f**king exercise! my back, shoulders and neck muscles burn from the effort to hold myself against the wind-blast toung.gif I shall be the size of Mike Tyson if I keep this up!

And on a progress note: I've got a full service to do on the bike, so while I'm at it I'm gonna give her a f*cking good clean, and gonna clean up the clocks and surround, mine are a little bit f**ked...
Mkid
lol, time for a new gauge?
Ed.
Nooo, The tach face will be replaced, that's beyond saving, it's a common fault with the naked SV650's, they all do it given time...
The unit as a whole I'm just gonna sand flat then rattle can black, tidy it up that little bit, make it looks less like it's been stolen toung.gif

Thought I may also add, riding home from college today (Cba'd, left early) and I'm cruising down the A45, minding my own business at a happy 95mph - I check my mirrors out of impulse and there's flashing blue lights with an angry police man behind me... so to tell the truth, I did s**t myself, as I pulled into the middle lane to make my way to the verge to stop though, he barrels on past me - I actually giggled like a little school girl that I wasn't going to be getting any points toothygrin.gif
Ed.



Found a new dogging place.
Ed.
Triple post:
But HOLY s**t! This photo's about three years old... Look in the background, left hand side, recognise the lisence plate? toothygrin.gif



just as a note, I'm not in this photo, nor did i / do i know who owned my bike 3 years ago toung.gif amazing random find
Curtis
Funnily enough, no. None of your previous photo's show your plate xd.gif
Victor.
where did you found that pic?
Ed.

Oh s**t xd.gif

here's one: toung.gif

In England the license plate transfers with the vehicle? Here usually people hold on to their plates. My plate is the same one from my old Civic.
Ed.
In the UK, each vehicle has a plate, and it stays that way, unless you pay the DVLA to personalise it, in which case it can be transferred
Curtis
Yeah, it makes it easier for the police/insurers/DVLA to keep track of vehicles. Anyone can go on to the DVLA's website, punch in a reg plate and manufacturer name and they can get all the details of the car: engine size, colour, tax cost, currently taxed and mot'd etc...
Ed.


Before anyone asks, No, that's not me.
Mkid
Bro, is that you? You've changed.
Ed.
Yeah man, I've grown a foot, dyed my hair blonde and decided to look like a cherrub
Mkid
When you said "grown a foot" I looked up to see if the guy had 3 feet. lmao.
Ed.
HAHA!

Nah, I'm 5ft 9", The guy in the pic (My good mate Tyler) is 6ft 2"...

And he's 3 years younger than me :|

the f**king same xd.gif

your bike is awesome man. Here every plate stays with the car untill it is no running anymore. I think you can have a new plate in special cases but its pretty expensive, and you can't personalise it.
Ed.
So...Nearly got crushed by a falling lampost earlier, a van driving down the oncoming lane veered off into the central reservation, destroying completely the grounding for it... serious swerving to avoid it, and as a result, my boxers quickly went brown...
