rc45 certainly was regarded in a much lesser light than the rc 30 when it was released, but i've noticed a bit of a rose tinted retrospective being applied to them lately.

Don't think he needs a builder for an extension, more like a turntable to turn them round for a faster exit.

Bike in, cleaned, turned around, pushed out and sold:D :D :thumb

1) 4 weeks after you take delivery.
2) 337 miles
3) No.
4) Definately not
5) 38
6) Slightly more than you usually do.....it's obviously a bit special to have bothered posting about, and 'special' bikes lose more money than 'normal' bikes :D

Bansang Hospital Wall thanks Nick :thumb ;)

You must be bored with it by now. How much are you selling it for?

I took a RSV (I think) one out a while back. Went like buggery. I was trying to push everything out the way and getting the front end light all the time. Far to stressful and quick for old buffer GS riders :nono

Nick Marshall
17-12-06, 20:39
already fitted arrow road legal titanium silencers, crash protectors, special airfilter, iridium bulbs, power socket for the heated vest, BMW valve caps, 20 s/steel screws, now owned for 1 day and 8 hours. not sure about the anodised gold frame, but doesnt matter really..:D

Nick, I missed this thread when it started. It's excellent. I have enjoyed all your postings and would really like to mmet you some day and shake your hand. I am very envious of all the machines you have been through. It could never happen in Ireland the market is far too small and insurance far too restrictive.

Blimey - I'm sure it's a laser-guided scram-jet powered rocket and all that, but that frame wheels and body combo is one of the least pleasing things I have seen since Whatters started that "get yer gut out" thread.

Agree about the frame colour. I'm sure it's fun to ride but I'd lose my license in about 2 minutes so I'll stick with my nice unassuming GS thank you.
Shame that they'll have brought out the new super duper 10 times better version by the time you sell it next week :D :D :D :D
As Mr Jovi once said..It's all the same....do do be do do ......only the names will change!!!!!!!!!

How could Aprilia possibly release that and think it looks good :nenau

I'm sure it's a monster bike and goes like stink etc, but no, that really is nasty.......looks like something a courier has put together after crashing his last three bikes and has bolted them together :nenau
