my name is Markus, 46 years old, I live in Germany and since two weeks I am owner of a 2004 900 RS. I am the second owner and the bike has done only 10250 kilometers so far. At the moment the Benelli joins a bigger service at the Yamaha-Dealer of my brother (new battery Li-Ion, tires Michelin PiPo RS, new spark plugs (Iridium), oil, K&N air filter, brake fluid, new stepper (from a Triumph, because it is cheaper)). The body is in excellent condition and the bike has never seen a race track. Only the carbon front mudguard has a light damage. I hope that the Benelli will be ready next week, so that I can drive it even it is cold in Germany at the moment (about plus 5 centigrade).
It looks great, very clean. Lucky you having a brother with a bike shop. I have not had my tornado tre very long, it is not much warmer here in England now but I have still been out on mine. Are there many Benellis in Germany?
