I know there is a big difference in the handling of these bikes. But are they the same monster's power wise? I have an sv650 2001, in the next year or so I would like to give that bike to my GF and start her riding. I have always loved the TL1000 (s/r) any version. I think they are a beautiful and amazing bike. But I here they are only for the crazy and mad. The SV1000 would be a compromise I might be willing to make if they handling is way better and the bike is still as fun (POWER).
PS where do i get tire this big for my bike?
