    I used my old RGV (93 model) for pretty much all my commuting needs (to uni and back almost every weekday) as well as a weekend warrior and it has to be one of the most enjoyable bikes I have ever owned.

    As for trackdays, there are usually a few avenues to get out there. Trakdayz run a few at Wanneroo (they are also pitching in for the PSB one), there are regular advanced riding courses out at the AHG centre, sometimes there are tuning sessions down at Wanneroo (not sure who runs these, maybe Trakdayz as well?) and of course, last but not least, there is the PSB trackday (although you would want to get in quick to see if there are any places left).

    Head to the In the Loop page for other rides that get organised.

      If you are after a ticket for the PSB Trackday then perhaps PM Hewie - not certain whether there are any tickets left but it is worth a shot.

      I can't think what more you could possibly need to know... except maybe this:

        RGV for a first bike? Nice!

        If I keep this job once uni starts again, might be worth looking around for one as a quicker bike goes. Or just be patient and get my R&#39;s.

            rs 250 aprillia will pass an rgv no worries.....

            not a bad first roadbike though.....i had &#39;90 kr1s....but traded to &#39;95 rgv years ago.

            and thats enough talk of killing oneself....ride within ur limits and you should be ok...
