I really think that the cagiva sp 525 is one of the most well looking bikes.
How about the SP 525 faring on my Raptor 1000 :woot: ????

Hmmm.... as long as it doesn't hide the lovely yellow frame.

Unless the whole thing is gonna be yellow :)

Maybe I have to make a new raptor protect for this....
I liked this naked at it is,
Yesterday I made the first road ride with the rebuilt engine, It sound and pull great at low rew, Some KM more and I will pull up to redline to see what’s it like with the higher compression pistons from the TLR...

Hey nice of you to realise I live downunder and post pictures I can read properly! :haha:

Good looking bike too, do you think it's up on horsepower a bit with the higher compression?

Yeah, I've just got back from my commute in the dark & cold and at some point it'll always put a smile on my face. Lovely jubbly torque for easy speed :D
do you think it's up on horsepower
Talking of which do you reckon it's up on torque as well?

I don’t know how much more torque/hp but the now it’s very easy going with the front wheel up in the air..
This in combination with the rear Öhlins the bike is nervous as I like but controllable all time,
I’m available leaving black lines at the tarmac going out of curves lifting front wheel at same time now, before I had big problems controlling the rear end as the R1 shocker was stiff as a rock, giving the feeling I was close of a high end several times, until I did one and flue..

But why is there a ?Suzuki SV centre-stage? Whatever; I'd trade a day in the Canaries for a week of wet muddy weather in Norfolk, UK. Alright, let's be generous, a month at least... :nod:

The reason of the SV is that I built this one and this was the first day out at the local twisty mountain rods for the bike and also for the owner..
But we made our way down to the coast again without incidences.
If you come over her rent a bike, let me know and I can show where to go.

If I was a tourist over here I would choose the capital (Las Palmas), Why?
1. Better food
2. Nice beach
3. Concerts
4. Cheaper


Against the capital, the wether is more unstable (but still mostly good and if not half hour of highway and you are at the tourist area.

If you are more about the countryside it’s a lot of beautiful hoses for rent more faraway but with all needed confort as barbecues, swimming pools etc..

It’s about what you like most, as I told I’m happy to help if I can
