Hi Folks

Thought i would introduce myself, my name is Rab and i stay on the West Coast of Scotland. i just bought my first V raptor a few weeks ago and i cant keep myself of the damn thing, really enjoying being back on a bike after recovering from spinal surgery....spent toooo long driving hard tails chops in my younger days and now have nutz and bolts holding me together :happyhappy: anyway hopefully one day i will meet up with some folks and have a beer or 2, i dare say i might have some questions sooner or later, keep it on the black stuff :thumbsup:

Hey Guys

Thanks for the welcome, i stay in a small village just outside Ayr Crap Tartan, so not too far from you...will let you know the next time im down your way :thumbsup:

Shed Monkey, thankyou for the advice, although some of my friends would probably advise CT that im the bad influence lol

Dapper Dan....i totally agree the Mistral colour is the best ( dont want to start any arguments :wink: ) although not sure what finger gaurds your on about ! :?

Oops. ....alcohol induced non vision....didn't zoom in on the pic.....looked like finger guards....just your mirrors crossing the end of your levers made me think they were m/cross type lever guards... :doh:

Hey Norrie

How are you, thanks for your comment, I have had numerous amounts of bikes from 1950's British, 70's 80's and 90's Jap to the upto date plastic pocket rockets and this thing just blows them away....I dont know what its is but just loving the Raptor. I know Stow and that area pretty well im originally from East Lothian, next time im down that way I will drop you a line.
