Just wanted to introduce myself here.
I have been away from biking for a few years, after my mate was killed.
Thought the biking bug had deserted me, but...... a neighbour kept passing the house on his bike and I decided to take the plunge and go for my all time favorite bike that I never got around to buying..... I found a mint 2004 RSVR with 8000 miles on it (genuine miles!).
The bike arrived, complete with carbon everything and sorted suspension....... and the sound is amazing too. Beowulf cans!
I am lucky to stay in the Highlands with all the good roads......NC500 included and I am thoroughly enjoying myself.
