Yep. Fixed a few issues and did a lot of maintenance. Runs like it's new, despite my adding 10,000 miles to it.

Go touring before cruiser. Well if you are going to ride for a long time anyway.
Reason they call them touring bikes. You can go 600 miles and it's not that big a deal. Cruisers sit nice but not ideal for loads and loads of continuous riding.
Mine is an SV650s. The 650s has clip ons. Standard SVs have bars.
I don't take long trips on my bike. Longest has maybe been eighty miles round trip. Most of my riding is to work, school, or martial arts class. I can't leave the house for a long time because of the two old dogs, and if I go out of town, I take one of the cars.
Cruisers and naked/standard bikes are much more my style. I ****ing hate the way most touring bikes look. They look like top heavy old man rides. Not my cup of tea at all. I like light and sleek.
