    A Race Rep Spray job

    Jury is out on this at the mo.

    Do you think better in mint standard or mint race rep.

    I had my GSXR 600 done in the Rizla blue jobby with anodised wheel's, but it seems a bit TOO MUCH on a aprilia.

    Anyone else?

    whats in the running for the race rep theme mate?
    for me,itd have to be haga,i may still head that way myself in a year or 2 when ive got stone chips ect and the original paints looking a bit tired.
    hagas the boy,and one of m all time fave riders,so itd be no competition for me.edwards is ok,but its a bit to busy for me,that rep design.like the gold/white shakey rep alot and little1uk's,but haga for me all the way.

    dan mate i heard that you can drop a grand off the price having a race rep because it usauly means its been down the road also the persons buying have got to have same taste ect just a thought

    But on the flip side i put mine on fleabay 2 months ago and with 2 days still left to run the bid on mine stood at 4800, i withdrew it, and that was from a 99p start

    no point selling stew,even tho thats a great price!!
    what could you buy to replace her with 4800?
    like me,you prefer the old classic shaped mille and theres no IL4 id swap my mille for.i wouldnt worry about resale as im keeping mine and running it till she wont go no more.

    dont blame you mate,as you say,i bet theres not another like it.
    looks the dogs mate.
    only other bike i always wanted was an sp-1,but i doubt very much itd be any better than the rsv,probably a bit more relable but with wank fuel injection and much smaller with crap pillion seat,(they look gorgeous tho)
    so i love my bike.i may buy a winter hack at some point,1200 bandit or sumat,but me rsv's staying.

    I was gonna buy one of them Fuctree's this year but when i rode Badboys i discovered that they aint nothin like my shape, dont get me wrong, very nice bike but lost its soul, at no point did it feel as if it would pull ya arms out the sockets like mine, ya had to feather the clutch to get the front wheel up, mine just comes up on the throttle and seemed far to smooth, dare i sy it but inline 4 smooth, so spent the money on mine instead, you will see what i mean in july when ya ride mine back from Newark
