History
I was given a loan SFV for a couple of weeks after the apprentice at the dealership dropped the 08 SV650 I'd bought. The drop damaged the Yoshi can (attached to a full Yoshi system), the RHS fairing, levers and mirrors.
When the SV was dropped off after the repairs were done the clip-ons weren't aligned and a couple of other things were bugging me. The dealer had a 48hr returns policy so I sent it back and they gave me a brand new SFV for the same price.
It got named Benson after our second imaginary helper monkey. In case you were wondering why we - my gf and I - had a second imaginary helper monkey it was because the first one, Vincent, ran away... as did the XVS I named after him :))
