    hi all from newbe

    hi all,
    my names david, i live in sunny bristol, and have just bought my 1st vtwin , i rode a few tls and tlr and a ktm superduke and a buell but that wasnt fun , so i bought a rsvr 03 colin edwards rep, i never rode a big aprilia so should be fun, but when i was 18 i had a rs 125 and af 125, i take delivery on wend between 10-12, my last bike was a 98 R1 and i had a GSXR 7/11 before that, everything i owned before this was a in line 4, as i never had a rsvr before i wouldnt like to break it because of lack knowledge about these bikes as they are true beautys.................so any tips please............
    i will be looking forward to riding to the bulldog this year
    and maybe a few ride outs if the missis lets me
    so hello and stay safe

    Welcome to the site mate. All I would say is take it easy at first to discover the differences between what you're used to and the RSV. As you settle with the bike start to explore!

    thank you for all the love people, i feel all warm and welcome, ill post some pics when i get me beasty on wend, just insured it and it was 1056 english pounds for fully comp, im 27 this year 4 years n/c/b<but a crash going through court at the mo> immob+alarm on bike plus kept in a stone garage, i tryed getting more discount by telling them about my big dog but the lady on the phone was having non of it, so i paid the 120 pound to add it up for the last 2 months, hopefully there should be a day or two of sunshine in those two months, and i only got this bike cos i was paid off from work so i though fook it , look forward to any ride outs people are up for this summer

    hi i got the beast today 9,00am and after i finished my jobs garden ect ect, i got to take her out, 1st of all she mint well happy bunny, she pulls really well and took about 15 seconds to get back to riding again, as i was having loads of fun the little red light marked max come on and it cut the bike out, i pulled over straight away and oil smoke come from under the tank, i pushed it back home now and its sat in the shed looking sorry, not leaking but smells funny, just wondered what the best oil for these things, and how much do they take will and without filter thanks all
