not a g8... but makes me happy

Can't go too long without one.

2012 r1 0 miles

Home in the garage. Bought a house needed new "furniture" lol


Sunday ride... Great way to break her in

Scrubbing in the new tires!

All and all I love it. The cross plane crank makes power in an interesting way, I'd say its a hybrid between a twin and an inline... Crazy. And the traction control is neat I've only got 203 miles on it since I picked it up yesterday, more riding opinions after I get more seat time.

Sexyyyyyyy. I was lookin at a Matte Gray R1 before I settled on the Duc. Took some for a test ride and I really enjoy the XplanPlane crank. Throw a full graves link exhaust on that baby and let her roar!

Congrats bud.

supposedly a tune alone opens up about 15 to the ground, which we both know is HUGE on a bike, but i don't need more power just gotta shake off the cobwebs and get back to dragging knee. bought on saturday by sunday had 2xx miles on it, heres a pic of me breakin her in.

Tune will help big time. Always been a yamaha fan, most aggressive styling. Enjoy and be safe.

Thanks, yeah, i've always been a suzi guy but i got a hell of a deal, and it seemed the most bang for the buck in the litre bike category

Nice bike! Love the way the flat plane sounds with proper exhaust. I'll stick with ZRX though until I get the new 14+ Aprila Touno V4R.

its way different, its tractor like, lol.

I'll do an akro full evo-ti/carbon system at some point, need to shed the weight and i love the sound of em.

loves me some Aprilia, I've almost bought a few different RSV's over the years, never could pull the trigger though.
