Look here newly found RSV'ers, i have just swapped in line 4 for mille, (1 week ago) this bottom end is unbeliable, is this for real? i'm still running the baby in, i've nearly highsided the •••••• more than once, is this this normal behavior on bike like this or do i need to learn to ride again (speedway cbt maybe?) is this a twin thing?

Bike is great, handling superb, power delivery like the national grid (oh yea)

What were you riding before? Once she runs in you'll be even more impressed.
Keep the rubber side down

Be gentle with your right hand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, keeping the throttle UNDER STEADY CONTROL during corners, don't wang it open else you'll be heading skywards (without the bike!).

I had similar experiences coming from a four (even though it was a Busa) to a twin.

Keep it up old chap

Slow in, fast out
That's what twins
Are all about!

I've found staying in a higher gear gets around the high side problem. So far...

Ancient indian proverb:

He with on/off right wrist see sky often. He with gift of smooth catch many monkey.

We can learn a lot from our forefathers

youre lucky to have forefathers Ive always had to make do with one and he did a runner when I was 5.

I'll catch him one day tho, and when I do he owes me a shedload of bike bits in maintenance payments!
