Since I last posted I did a couple of track days (Oulton park and Pembrey) on the rsvr before selling her.
Riding position was just too painful in my hips.
My sister had an SV in reasonable condition which I modded and had fun at pembrey on.
Then I sold the SV and got the Ducati, a marque I'd wanted since being a teenager.
Didn't end up with the SV1000, I went to collect it, handed the money over and the f*cking thing wouldn't start!! Seller started dicking about over the sake of a battery and I didn't like his attitude to it all so took my money and ran.
Bought a 2004 Triumph Daytona 600 instead, same as this one.
Heading to Silverstone this year on it for the Moto GP so if any of you lot are about, I'll be the one in a tent surrounded by empty bottles of JD........
