    Well take it easy and don't push too hard. Pace comes with practice and experience. Don't do what I did five weeks after my DAS I rammed my poor little SV into the back of a car and spent two weeks in hospital. :p

    Yeah I was riding again two weeks after they let me out of hospital.

    Smooth progression on the lever and planning ahead is the key to braking in the slippy goo on the winter roads. I tell you what though I've been pretty impressed with the brakes on the RSV, they're excellent.

    Haa yeah i was well happy to have frost bite on the fingers me mates are always going on about it and i was yet to experience it lol I am no longer a frozen fingered virgin

    They both love it they think it sounds beautifull and it feels really light for a 1000cc and they also said the brembos were bloody amazing

    Yeah it is light for a 1000 and thats one of the things that suprised me and why i got one, glad to see your hooked like the rest of us i'm looking forward to the warmer weather so i too can enjoy what the rsv has to offer with sticky tyres .Looks like your m8 with the green troosers must have been brave in the freezing climate ont take too many risks m8 in this weather, keep the rubber side down
