    Finally Pulled The Trigger: 2017 RSV4 RR

    Hi All,

    Long time rider, but new to this forum. Been a Honda loyalist since I started riding in 2001. I was actually lucky enough to get on the confirmed allocation list for the '17 CBR SP2, but the documented problems with the bike combined with the repeated delays pretty much left me disenchanted. So much so that I pulled my deposit, finally grabbed the family jewels, and checked in to Hotel Italia.

    I've long wanted to step into owning an RSV4, but never really had the situation present itself as it has now. Also, never owned a new bike before...always bought used. So here I am, buying new and buying a 2017 RSV4. Just picked it up Tuesday. So begins the era of the Ape.

    Looking forward to getting to know the community here.

    Will post more pics as mods and updates come along.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    Was so busy hosting the Cycle Bash that I had no time to get any pics of my bike at the meet. Janet from Clutch Crew took this shot, worked some magic, and emailed me this today...cool lady.
