    Had a bit more of a rideout during a day off work on Friday and really enjoyed the RSV4. Took it pretty steady as there was a fair bit of single track roads with gravel and farmer's shite but the smooth stuff felt great. It's absolutely nuts how quickly scenery comes at you when you really give it a fistful though. the torq

    Been watching a few videos about the RSV4 and Tuono lately, Iíd love an Aprilia at some point. The motor is incredible, thatíll be a blast to twat about on this summer. Where abouts do you ride normally?

    Got a test ride on the new 765 RS tomorrow morning, the roads around here are unusually clear at the moment so Iím looking forward to that. Hopefully scratches an itch the Monster didnít, but thinking about a Tuono potentially if not, just want to put off testing one as long as possible

    @elstoof I've always rode bike with clip-ons but i'm coming round to the idea of a bike with normal bars. I bet the Tuono is a hoot. I'm finding the noise of the V4 with the Akra pretty addictive. It definitely turns heads. This past week when i'm not on the bike i'm watching videos of other people ride them.

    Hope you enjoy your ride out tomorrow! I'm definitely gonna scope things out and see if it's any quieter around here. My county is about two decades behind the rest of the country so i'm not certain if corona virus will keep people from travelling.

    I'm in Lincolnshire. Some decent roads around here but a lot of farmers too so the road conditions vary.

    The 765RS was a stunner! The engine sounds incredible even with the stock can, I donít think youíd even want to change it, bags of power and the scream it makes at the top end is perfect. Steering feels quicker than my 899, less effort to chuck it around and just feels planted. Great suspension and brakes are much better than Iím used to. I want one, really badly. Probably see myself chucking clips ons and rearsets at it a few years down the line though, just feels more natural being hunkered down although itís not quite as upright as the Monster was

    Kicking myself with the timing. Had been trying to sell my ped so I could get a bike, and finally managed to get rid of it on Monday. Just before the lockdown kicked in so now can't go and l at a new one, and have nothing to ride when I can go back to work. :lol: :(

    I probably could get away with a short ride "for shopping"but circling about within a few k from your house isn't a fun ride.

    If the police pull you over 30-40k from where you live 'out shopping'won't cut it and you just get a ticket.
