Thought it was best I got my bike up and said hello given I've already started commenting on other posts

Bought this in September having part exchanged my very nice if a little delicate mv agusta dragster rr

There's a few videos of it going round IOM, track days etc if you can be bothered to look https://www.youtube.com/c/DeanBirkumshaw

Have only done about 2000 miles since mid September the mods are only tail tidy, pipe, rad guard, road lok and mirrors

It is an absolute peach to ride, with the best electronics I've been on! I'll be at nurburgring end of April and Isle of Man June

Road ride videos don't get loaded up... I hear pc plod like to nick you for these

Anyways Hi and hopefully see some of you on road or track

Oi oi Shaun! New years resolution I've come off fb just go on a couple bike forums now

I'm doing nurburgring end April and Isle of Man TT month after and I'm still out most Sundays... It's just no fun when your hands are numb!

Definitely we will get out on a load of rides this year - this Aprilia is nuts compared to the mv agusta

Haha cheers guys

Yes the pipe does have a bit of a bark...but nowhere near as much as you'd think looking at its design

I hear (excuse the pun) that the race map which switches the valve off really makes it loud but with it currently running it's no louder then my last bike an mv agusta dragster with a QD triple pipe can and cat still in place

I'm still fiddling about doing little bits to it like m7rr's, USB install etc etc

Will be doing nurburgring April so if it doesn't bore people I'll start a new thread with pictures and videos and I'm doing Isle of Man TT June

I'd really like to do a couple track days on it but the tyres aren't really up for the job and I have a track bike already... It's just a crappy gsxr which inspires nothing compared to the Aprilia haha
