New toy

Brought home a 07 Aprilia rsv to keep the rc company thru the long winter, was only slightly more expensive than a suspension upgrade on the rc and it’s already got ohlins front and rear, leo titanium high mounts and a bazz controller and steering Dampner so she’s ready for some track days

I'm dating a rich, sexy Italian super model with big boobs and a penchant for lingerie but I'm not posting pics.
See the comparison?

Ok initial ride in the dark and rain, doesn’t sound as good as the rc nor does it have the power of the rc ( which isn’t much)motor felt very flat but liked to be reved, handling is all different the rc you need to work to get it down the rsv falls in and you have to keep it from going all the way down, steering Dampner might be coming off as it was fighting me in city riding I’ll try all the way out (soft) and decide on a more proper ride. Let’s see what it brings but these old Aprilia seem like nice equipment for cheap.

Is your clutch pull stupid hard on yours?, it worked fine but the pull is 3 or 4 times as hard as the rc, would be fine on track but I could See about 10 min in traffic would destroy Your hand

Wow awesome handling, great feeling brakes, transmission felt just
Slightly clunky but I’m having issues that there just isn’t enough room for
My boots with the high rise exh heat shields it’s taking a lot of foot ancle movement for every upshift and created a couple unwanted shifts from just normal foot movement. The back of me heels are against the heat shield the whole time

I think the gearbox loosens up when the bike gets warm. Also, I put on a set of Knight Design pegs, much more comfortable...
