Ok to state the obvious these aren't Bandits and only one has an S badge but here is my son Mark on his SV650 we picked up today.
75km ride back to Sale before loading onto a trailer for the trip to Melb.
I have ridden with my son Smile Something we promised we'd to on TBL.
We're looking forward to many fine weekends between now and "cruiser time" Laughing
I'm looking forward to him wearing decent boots but the rest of his gear is fine.

Nice work Dad. 
What an awesome, healthy and fulfilling way to spend time together.  
I'm sure Mark will get a lot out of the SV.

Tell him the best mod is seat time. It's already a good looking bike

So when's the round Australia trip?


Congrats on the new bike

Yes I hammered that home all weekend RD.
Mates have been saying change the rear shock do this do that.
I've been saying get to know the bike and learn to ride first.
Lucky he's broke now Laughing

For cheapness you can't beat a GSXR or zx10 rear shock. Then you'll need to race tech the soft front too. Probably the best $800 you could spend on it
