New V-Raptor owner in town!

Post by Esefar » Wed May 31, 2017 6:24 am

Greetings to everyone!

My name is Santos, I'm from Greece and I'm a proud owner of a red Cagiva V-Raptor 1000 since two years ago.
Although I'm a new member (and one of the youngest I think since I'm 32 now 😎) I've spent a lot of time reading almost all posts and threads before I bought my bike and I kept checking the site afterwards for ideas and solutions regarding the owning of a Raptor.
I didn't have time to become a member before because I'm a seaman, so I travel a lot (with no internet most of the time) and I'm pretty busy when I'm not travelling. 😒
I will post the bike's sitrep on another post because it involves mods, dyno and chip tuning, so I think that you'll be very interested with the results. 😉

Anyway, nice to meet you guys.
Hey barman, virtual beers and shots for everyone!
🍺🥃🍻🍹

Καλησπέρα Fazerstun! Greeks are everywhere!
Ouzo for Andy as requested please!
Between, I tried to upload a photo of my pride but it says that the file is too large, while the photo is only 750 KB. 🤔
I'll give it a second try next time I'll deploy my laptop! 😋

I finally managed to post a pic. 😁
In my opinion, that's the sexiest viewing angle of the bike. 👍

I wasn't doing anything sinister, I just have to spin it so I can park it properly in my yard. 😅
But I need new tyres anyway, so I will abuse these on the dyno before I get rid of them. 👍

Your attention to detail seems out of this world! 😂
That's​ my mate's place so I'll have to ask his girlfriend what's that. 😅
I believe that she put the sock so she won't rest her arms on the faux leather of the armrest. 🤔
