Nice Ape, wish I could of afforded keeping mine as a second bike. Open that wallet for the insurance and rear tires you will go through.

This bike wonít be truly appreciated until itís flogged properly at some track days.

Arkansas and Hill rides are a blast. The aches and pains from the riding position will have you tied in knots. Oh, and the RSVís are heat monsters. Make sure to get a tail bag for plenty of water.

That sound is audible ! Memories

Man I love this bike. Oddly enough, the insurance on this bike brand new went down $21 a month versus the same coverage on my '11 CBR1000rr...weird.

Appropriate flogging is coming on Thanksgiving weekend lol. The seating position was uncomfortable at first, but I've grown into it...it's rather comfortable now...although I haven't really gone 50+ miles on any stint yet.

And heat? Oh my yes...my foot-on-peg peg position depends on whether I'm wearing over-ankles or not.

True that...audio it is.

Thanks so much to Janet at Clutch Crew. She knew I didn't have time at the Bash to get any shots of my bike...so she worked a little magic on a shot she took and sent me this. How cool is that?!

Had to resize so it would fit here. Original is awesome rez.

Resized

THat image is way to dark and the fake vignetting looks like a 90's School photo. Let me help you.

It is pretty dark...a lot darker than the original. The resizing dramatically killed the color and the resolution. The original is bad .

I was really posting this to say thank you to Miss Janet, but if you want to play with it feel free. I can email original to you.

Good choice. I love the '17 RSV4s with the updates including the down QS and cruise control. Itching to get back on 2 wheels since we returned to Houston and the Grey '17 RSV4 is my #1 wish bike. Hard to spend 15-16k on a new bike for occasional rides and track days though. Keeping my eye open for a great deal on a end of the year or early next year leftover, maybe I can get lucky.

I believe Brian has a demo on the floor at Italian Superbikes

Looks like you have been having a blast with the 'Prilla these last 5 months.

You ready to trade your Ape on an SP2??

Honda America promises they will be delivered 2 to 3 weeks after January 30

And... there is an extra 1 in the container.... you still want it? LOL
