    Posted: 06 Jul 2017 at 16:05
Hi there!

I'm Alex and I live in the Netherlands. I've been riding bikes for 10 years now and recently become a owner of a 2004 RSV 1000R.

This is my third Aprilia now (previous bikes; CBR 600F, CBR 954RR fireblade, Aprilia Tuono 2003, Kawasaki Z1000, Aprilia RSV Mille 2002).

All bikes I've owned are great in there one way, but the Rotax V-Twin is definitely the most fun to drive. (and Ducati's :-))

So originally this RSV 1000R is not a Factory, but almost all factory parts are on it:
- All carbon parts
- OZ forged wheels
- Ohlins rear shock
- Radial brake pump (or is this default?)

Thinking of mounting a AP rearset. But first I'm going to invest in a new pear of leathers.

Enough talking.. 

Tuono (sold)

RSV Mille (sold recently)

New and old (RSV 1000R before mods)

New bike

Loving it and unusual to see gold wheels on a silver ape I was thinking of going the same way on mine and swapping the blue but didn't know if it would work. I think it does. Welcome along and you are from a fine country loved living over there where abouts are you?
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

Yeah! The previous owner of this bike was my dad, and he did all the mods. 
First I thought the gold wouldn't look good, but now they are under the bike I really like it!

Nice detail, the gold matches nice with the orange in the decals
