Re: I have an RS

I've got a green/silver one.

I'm taking it for it's first service on 18/04 and then after that it's going to get a damn good thrashing !

If the weather looks ok and you're going out for a blast after 18/04, give me a shout.

Especially as I'm off work for that week - Corby's a great central place for some nice roads.

Re: I have an RS

The first one is going to be at 3X.

The nearest authorised Benelli Service Centre to Northampton is On yer Bike in Aylesbury (according to KJM) but I want to give 3X the opportunity to check it over as they supplied it.

I've emailed them asking for a mechanic called Sam to work on it (recommended) but haven't heard anything back (ominous sign?).

Then it's play time ! I can meet you any evening up to the 20th May or at the weekend.

How do you ride, 'cos I ain't that quick ?!

just got back on two wheels again after a long time,so i dont race about.like to stay safe,mostly within speed limits.

I got my rs from planet bikes in leicester,and should be taking it back to them when the time comes.they were a benelli dealer,now honda! good bunch of lads.

did you know that taz motorcycles of peterborough sell new benelli,so that might b another option!:smokin

Re: I have an RS

Wey hey, I'm back !

The bike got a first service at 3X (£229 inc vat) - 3 hours labour at £50p.h and consumables, I belted down there and waited while they did it. So far so good. The permanent food van they have outside was excellent (coming from a foodie background) and the service staff were very pleasant. Got to watch the bike being serviced (although not too close) and being cleaned and polished afterwards ! - shame it was filthy again when I got back.

Opened her up a bit on the way home and , boy, is she noisy:eek . Even though I took the revs to about 8,500 only there was a big grin on my face - 3 or 4 drivers screwed their heads round to take a look as I passed them, prove if you need it that you're not riding a jap jelly mould !:D

I know someone who works p/t at Planet so if you need a quote for something, let me know.

In the meantime, I should be out Monday 1st for a ride if you're about?????

Re: MY RS

bluesky.

sounds like you had a good run from 3x. yeh the sound from the bike is like a spitfire flying over !!!!:D

went out for a small run today,about 30miles and it cut out twice again,clutch in 2nd-1st :rolleyes but the looks and rubber necking always makes up for that:D hope that they will soon find a cure for the cutting out problem,as in tre section(RS cutting out).if you havent read it!

hope the rain will lay off tomo,then should b out for another blast. cant wait:rollin

oh yeh this is my email if u or anyone want to contact meabout a run out . [email protected] :smokin
