First of all, I didn't ask you if I should or shouldn't buy a literbike!
I asked if anyone knew how easy it was to learn to ride on the RSV1000 R (Mabe you mis-understood my question, I wanted to know how hard is it to adjust to the bikes power and handling, is it easy or not, and your experiences) . Further more, if you could not answer my question, or don't have any experience riding this particular bike then you should not have replied. I have read all the posts with you guys going back and forth about what bikes to start out with. I am well aware of all your "start small" advice. I appreciate your warning, but I don't need someone telling me what I can't do, or how my hard head will hit pavement!
I don't repsond well to people telling me what can't be done or what I can't do, as far as ability is concerned, especially when that was not my question.
I have belief in myself, my composure, and my ability to learn.
Again my question was how easy or hard is it to learn how to ride the RSV. I am not talking about how to ride a bike (Step 1...) because I already know how do that. I was referring to it's ridability and how it handles in every day situations. Most of your advice is about peaky bikes that can take you by surprise, and all the other advice you think we "begginers" are to stupid to know in the first place, like which way to turn the throttle or how hard to sqeeze the front brake. I mean, come on guys, any dumb @ss who has rode a bmx bike knows if you clutch the Hell out of the front brake you forhead will meet pavement. That was just an example.
All I am saying is I want information about this bike and how it handles, the rpm's, when does it turn rocket ship? You know stuff like that.
Most of you really should not start bashing people before you know there stituation. I am aware if I drop or crash an Aprilia that it will cost greatly, but if money where a problem for me I would not get an Aprilia in the first place. If that is the route I choose to take, I plan to get private lessons and go to track school so I can learn the power of the bike the right way. What, you think I'am going to buy the bike, take the bigginers course, get my License, and just take it on the road and go for it! Yeah, right!
To all who have experience on an Aprilia RSV 1000R or have something positive to say, feel free to respond.
