Well, NickyBoy took his first ever pillion passenger out the other day, it was my first time ever carrying a pillion and it was her first time riding on the back of a bike, what a way to start but on the back of a Big Bore 1060 RSV-R huh Hehehehe.....

It was a bit weird at first but got the hang of the extra weight fairly quickly and she also learned Very quickly that my 13 year old bike WASN'T 13 year old slow Hahahaha......

Did the Burnham bends and loved it, that rear seat is much comfier than I thought lol

Any ideas what a 1060 would deliver on a Gen with cans and filter?

Ooh very very nice mate, I do have a hankering for a 2003 Gen 1 to go in the garage, I even like the yellow ones( and that's the only yellow bike I've ever fancied).... Question NB, what are those forks off of?

WHAT WHAT WHAAAAAAAAAT?!?!?!?! You "EVEN" like the yellow ones?!?!?! In my *cough* totally unbiased view, a yellow 03 R is the best looking out there.

Haha, apologies there mountainman, it was actually a compliment, albeit backhanded... Hehe. I just have never liked any bikes in yellow APART FROM the Rsvr, which I think looks awesome
Even to the point where it would be a close call between a yellow one or a black one if I had to choose (and I love black bikes).... I hope I am forgiven now I've clarified things...

Hmm...I'll eye you with suspicion for a while.

I admit I didn't go out looking for a yellow one. Or an 03 for that matter but it came up very locally so had to have a look. Had never seen a yellow one in the flesh before and really wasn't prepared for how good it looks. Honestly, I went to be nosey, not to buy. Within 30 seconds there was no way I was leaving without it.

Similar for me MM, not in the flesh but I was scanning through eBay last year to see which Rsv's were about and saw a yellow 03 RSVR and it just looked mint, low mileage, pretty original and only about 3 grand...I was so tempted and I've fancied one ever since...my mate is serial buyer and seller of bikes and he is going through a modern classic phase just lately so I'm hoping he gets one that I can then have off him once he has put new tyres, chain and sprockets on it ....

Good plan. Wish I had a mug...sorry, mate to do that for me. Similar low miles on mine and an owner who admitted he was selling as he couldn't ride it due to hip and knee surgery. I almost felt guilty about how hard I kicked him for it. Saved about a grand on asking price. I suppose he would have the last laugh though as the tyres were marked from 08 and the fork bottoms were cracked so the saving kinda vanished. Ah well. I wouldn't have left it anyway. There have been more good surprises than bad with it. Besides, that pearl yellow on a sunny day would put a smile on the face of the grumpiest of sods.

Hehe, I do love my mate to bits but he is murder with his bikes, 24 hours is his record so far...I took him over to Carnells in milton Keynes on a Saturday to pick up a Fireblade and then he chopped it in for a Hayabusa(his second inside of a year)on the Sunday...classic.
I will get myself an RSVR to go alongside my Gen 2 Tuono one of these days, still got a few bits to do to the T first though, once it's stopped hoovering money out of my account then I can start looking for the Rsv....and let that start hoovering the cash...Hehe.

Sorry guys, yep the front forks are from a 999R and have been powdercoated black, they slot straight into the Aprilia yokes, 51mm top and 56mm bottom!

Very nice they are looking NB, how do you rate them compared to the Aprilia ohlins forks? I saw a set of Desmosedici ohlins forks a few months back on eBay and was lusting after those, £1500 they went for in the end though
