I am retired now, and only have a history of commuting on past rides.
So now for something different, Having never before even ridden a bike with clip-ons or rear sets before this bike I have built my take on a Cafe Racer based on a Gen1 SV650 difference being I want it to be a real sport bike so not just looks although it is old school like me.
I want to keep improving the bike but to take advantage of it I need learn a lot of skills myself.
I had it finished and on the road but during lock downs decided to start stage 2 which will include a lighter tank which will also for the top of the air box, cams, and 1/2 fairing.
I would like to practice sports bike riding of which I have little-no skills and not sure where to start because I'm a bit chicken. Maybe I need a bike I don't care so much about to learn on.
Thanks for having me I look forward to some guidance.

This was stage 1 as was before I started reworking it during lockdown.
I have knocked over 10kg maybe nearer 20kg from the weight, 1/2 kg from the flywheel, 1 kg with 520 chain and alloy sprocket and it has a lithium ion Battery, lighter smaller headlight, just to name a few lighter items.
