    Looking at buying an '01 RSV

    I'm completely new to the world of Aprillias but I do quite like the look of the earlier bikes and the prices seem to be reasonable these days so I'm off to have a look at one tomorrow.

    I'm just after a bit of advice really - what are the main things to look out for on a bike of 2001 vintage? Does anyone know of a decent buyers guide anywhere on the tinterweb? The bike in question has done 18,000 miles, looks to be in reasonable nick but has been sorn'ed for the last 2 years or so.

    Any advice gratefully recieved!

    hi mate you better take a mould of your face before you buy the mille mate so the surgeons can have something to work from when they need to reconstruct your face ,as thats the only way you can get the big grin removed is a operation and that wont be cheep
    i personally i like my grin but funerals can be tricky : ps: if it starts first time and everything works youve won a watch
