Hello all ..
A little bit about me .Had blades ,r1s.zx12 r,zx12,zxr 400,Vfr 400,
Gsxr 1000s and the rest .Been riding since 96.

I had to buy a new place so money was tight after selling my bikes so needed something cheap and cheerfull for my bike fix .

I stumbled across a 2002 Rsv Mille in grey for cheap money..
1600 quid to be exact .

Anyway I went through the bike and it needed front brake light switch and oil pressure switch which I’ve changed myself but the rest of the bike was fine..

So I’ve had it out a few times and I can honestly say I’ve fallen in love with the old girl..I simply love it ,it’s not the quickest but in the bends and sweepers it’s just got something I don’t know what it is but I just get it..


Just thought I’d share this

Just give it a full service and about start on the mods .its already got a pc and K and n on it.16 -44 sprockets as well 

Will be doing griffs wiring upgrade and doing collector box mod shortly.Just thought I’d share Cos I already love the old thing it’s solid as a rock

Thanks lads another thing I had a Nero black gen 1 years ago when they first came out and never got on with it.

Don’t know if it’s my riding that’s come on with several trackdays and years of road riding but this time round it’s like me and the old thing are made for each other.weird but the things just gelled with me.I feel special when I’m riding it.

Belting bike for the money ,I won’t be flirting it I’ll just keep it and have it for track days ,Sunday blasts etc .Made up with it.

Hi Carl 

Bike sound great and this is an amazing forum full of the best advice and members 
Your mission is now how to crack posting pictures of the bike, garden, moss and dandelions on an unkept driveway. Oh and if you can get the picture the correct way up that would be mega! 

Enjoy 😃
