When people spoke about the "god awful BMW", they also used a certain descriptive term. This term that you left out was "ulgy". Maybe you remember it as "god awful ulgy BMW". I don't think anyone (in their right mind) would think that BMW would produce a crap motorbike. The BMW has caused all the bike companies to scramble & make/produce a more techologically (spelling?? who cares?) advanced bike/product line.
Anyone can see that the BMW has a load of power, and I am sure that most agree that it doesn't make up with the looks department.
This lot of folks we have here are a little biased as we are coming from one of the most beautiful looking bikes in the world.
I think you are trying to change history here, you'll find the words started flying 1st when your side kick King MrView started to show everbody what a God he is with words he's no good at any technical suff, just verbal diarrhoea. In fact that just about sums him up "Verbal Diarrhoea" have a look back at all his posts, they are just "Verbal Diarrhoea, he's never helped any forum member yet.

I don't mind if you think it's crap or ugly, you have a right to your view(s) and opinion and I respect that..........................but bringing it into every thread that I post on in the future ...........
I'd take an RSV4 in a heartbeat

You are right on the money Mike..Dot 5.1 is a completely different animal to dot 5
Dot 5 is not compatible with Dot 4 and will very likely destroy your seals.

Dot 5.1 is compatible with Dot 4 and won't destroy your seals. It has a higher wet boiling point than dot 4 but as it is more hygroscopic it needs changing more regularly than dot 4

Dot 5.1 is probably overkill on a road bike...

I change my brake fluid and clutch fluid once a year anyway.. Its Hydraulic therapy ; )

My only slight negatives would be some parts look a little ''cheap'' as in rear subframe and the plastics, and some others very expensive, like the Aluminium fuel tank, Aprilia/MV/Ducati take note here

I was hoping BMW would bring out a special edition with Ohlins/carbon etc.

It's very odd though, if some one stole my RSV4 and I couldn't have another I don't think I would have another BMW? and I don't know why
not? can't fathom that one out

MV's all gone now, still have a soft spot for MV's, waiting for MV to tick all my boxes again.

I find it kind of fun just to keep changing and trying out different rides. Always so different bike to bike.

Dear MVista

Stephen Wood has told me to grow some balls and tell you to grow up and be ashamed of yourself when you post "crap" on this forum. You are not making people feel better about themselves. Furthermore I must wake up and smell the coffee.



Dear Stephen Wood

Grow up.

Vista really loves stephen

MVista's thoughs towards stephen are not all bad:

I got this idea from the F3 section where Stephen W. posted his desktop, I thought to myself "How cool I wonder what eveyone else has?" Ok, so I showed you mine, now let's see yours

Original Idea:
Attachment 56717

see they can kiss and make up
