    Love it

    So, picked up my new bike on Sunday - a 2005 RSV R Factory. This is my first litre bike and I'm coming from a year on a VFR800FI after a year on a 125.

    Was an easy choice to make. So much bike for 4k - forged wheels, ohlins, twin akros, stunning looks and dripping with carbon. Looks like I've got a well loved example - only 7,300 miles in over ten years. All the electrical gremlins seem to have been addressed - brown plugs changed, uprated leads and a bigger battery.

    And then I rode it. Feels like I've just put a set of bars on the apocalypse itself and I'm laying waste to everything in my path. Only pootled it home really, but opened it up a bit - the v twin is fantastic. Will be easing myself into it gradually, don't want to get carried away and regret it! Looking forward to getting to know it over the coming months.

    Anyway - here it is:

    There is only one small issue... one of the bolt holes on the front fender was cracked so I've taken it off until I can get it fixed. Know a guy who works with carbon for a living, so he's gonna repair it for me.
