depends on how serious you are about doing some track days. I see a used 636 being up your alley.

I'm hoping Suzuki gets off their arses and does a full redesign of the SV (both sizes). Though the current 1000 does sound like a hoot!

Get a ZX14. I doubt you'd be happy on the ZX9, too big.

If you are going to do trackdays get the Giggy750 or a used 636.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Love the big SV, a great do-it-all bike. Sport touring with soft bags, commuting or track days.
