Can I show off? (2005 Aprilia)

Been waiting two weeks for this to be delivered. Found it on the UK Fireblade forum and jumped at it quicker than Noel the Knurl can buy parts

2005 RSV1000R Factory. Sub-9,000 miles. All books and standard exhaust and std clear screen. Rides magnificently and a real treat as opposed to inline fours.

Long story about its purchase. I had a Honda 1999 VTR which whet my appetite to buy a VTR SP1. Sold the VTR and then this Ape showed up - couldn't help myself

Okay, I'll try that tomorrow after the neighbours have woken up! (Or, I could simply give them an early morning!!)

Congrats Nigel. I have a soft spot for the Gen 2 bikes. The best bang for the buck out there. I was cruising the forums for the Red Lion, found one but it was in San Francisco. In the meantime I found a Streetfighter S at a local dealer that I couldn't pass up.

So what makes us like this? Genetics, love, or simply lack of discipline?

Nice find! I had a couple of '04 Factories myself. Two points on the '04 and '05 that make them stand out is the black frame and single piece side fairings, a much cleaner look than the later years. If you haven't already, join the apriliaforum sponsored by af1.
