    2003 RSV on Brands Indy





    My old bus at Brands Hatch Indy on 4th June. These were from first session as my chain snapped in the second...
    Managed to get a new one but it meant I was off track from 11 until 3pm!

    Hi sorry for the delay. No, it's just a standard 2003 model RSV (not R) with an Image Works decal kit.
    I put them on myself and whilst they're far from perfect, from a distance they look fine. Someone with more skill and a proper squeegee thing could do a far better job.

    It's a focused events track day and their usual photographer. he's pretty good- i'll find some other pics and post them. (Have to be the R6 though, only had the RSV a few weeks)

    Jon, thanks for the info!!!

    on a scale from 1 to 10 how would you rate the image work decals?

    Probably 8.5 out of 10. The colour and scale were slightly out- I think the blue striping behind the main IP logo on the fairing is too light, and the Gresinbon stickers are slightly undersized-but otherwise very, very good.

    As for the other pics:

    amazing form on the 1st pic with the r6. That's such a smaller bike than the RSV when comparing the two bikes in these pic. amazing!

    Nice pic's fella, look's like you enjoyed yourself. Bummer the chain broke though, were you out on track when it went ?, hopefully it didn't damage anything.

    Thanks for the comments guys, makes me all warm inside!

    Yes, the R6 was fantastic. It was so small, light and flickable it was a complete joy to ride and allowed me to take huge liberties. On track it ruled (for me) and on top end power leaves my current RSV behind. It's actually about 7hp down on the Mille, but so much lighter with a far smaller frontal area so outpulls it in the real world.

    The chain snapped out of Druids- I felt it go past my boot and it destroyed the hugger and chain guard with minor marks to swingarm and engine cases.
    I was very, very lucky as it could've cut the engine, locked the wheel or cut through some nice fleshy bits of body.
