    I went to the event and all I can say is wow! The RSV4 1100 is an amazing machine, the engine is so sweet, smooth, powerful and deceptive. The chassis is extremely stable suspension worked very well and provided great feedback. All the bikes were set up with standard shift which caused me some difficulty as all my bikes both street and track are GP shift, bikes were shod with Pirelli Rosa Corsa III tires which were equally impressive. I only have two issues with the bike, first the throttle at low speeds has no feel and does not respond quickly enough when getting back on the throttle off an apex, secondly it is a small bike, and I am a big guy, at 6'1" and 200lbs stock peg position was as high as I could use and manage the controls, unfortunately i kept grinding the pegs and the toe of my boot, pegs would need to be higher for me and that would make it really difficult for me to ride. So for all you guys and gals who are under 5'8" and weigh 160lbs or less this bike is amazing, just plain amazing!!
