    Wink Hi everyone, bought one without trying it!!!

    Hey everyone, thought I'd introduce myself as I'm new to these forums. My name's Russ, I have had a bike school in Nottingham for 22 years now and found I was getting bored with bikes until I got myself a Fazer 1000 a couple of years ago which rekindles the fun factor. The other week a Facebook friend posted pics of his new Tuono V4 which made my stomach turn, it was that beautiful. A bike hasn't made me feel that way since I bought the first CBR600 in Nottingham in 1987. Anyway, after exhaustive reading and thread reviews on the Tuono I thought I'd take a punt and ordered one. It will be here on Monday morning and I'm looking at doing a little review on first thoughts on my YouTube page "Roadcraft Nottingham"

    I've already ordered the R&G tail tidy and a carbon Akropovic end can....and a matt black Schuberth C3....and an Icon contra jacket...and new gloves....

    THIS BIKE BETTER BE WORTH IT!!!!!

    Thanks STiX, I need grin factor and from what I've read, everyone loves it, but I'm a miserable git and expect the best from my purchases so we'll see. I recently bought a R1200GS because of what people were saying about it but couldn't get on with the vibrations and lumpy fuel injection mapping so ended up selling it, but not before alienating the "BMW Taliban" on their forums, they wouldn't have a bad word said against it lol.

    I've decided on the name "Roadcraft" as that's what my school's called but when the instructor bib comes off I enjoy a good blast as much as the next man. :-)

    I use a honda pan European to train on so this will be a "blow the cobwebs away" bike for playing only. (without the instructor bib on)

    My wife also said I don't need to change my bike. She's right I'll get one as a second bike instead one day. Gonna wait a few years though first. I can't find the limits of thus one yet

    Good thinking Bay. i Was only contemplating that after forking out on all the bits & pieces I have so far & still having a list for seat recover, Respring suspension front & rear& possibly Aprilia performance rear sets it would be silly to part ex so soon. However I could always keep the T & part ex the fireblade for the RSV4 Although It wouldn't be worth so much & I'd have to find about an extra 4K.
