Went to BRands to see the WSB on Sunday.

Pulled into car park..... parked up and saw 2 other Tres within 10 yards ....so much for exclusivity :rolleyes

Saw a guy with an older RS (with OZ wheels and a darker can)

Went over all friendly and asked if he'd had any probs with it?

He looked at me as if I had 2 heads and said that he'd had no probs in 18 months and 2,500 miles.

Any one else had a hastle free ownership

Happy to say that my 06 RS is hassle free (& i'm not even on Valium) as long as you dont count the warranty indicator switch-but i never used it anyway.
Been busy recently so in the 2? months i've owned her mileage is just on the 1200 mark.

As a metter of interest, when was your 06 RS manufactured. I have just bought an 06 plate but the chassis number tells me it was built in 2004 !!

I've put 20,000km on my Tre in 20 months.

The loom under the seat failed in the first couple of months and kept me off of the road for a day or 2, but that is part of any product lifecycle.

I've had a grin on my face since Christmas 2004. Best bike I've ever owned.

I did about 1200km with my new engine (2006) without any problem at all.:D
My Tre is from 2003, and by comparison with the original engine this new one is running much smoother, makes less
metal noises and is feeling much stronger. ;)

Thanks Engenia, my rs now 1 month old was made in 2004 then.
Most of the dates on mouldings are from 03.
I wonder if any one has one made more recently ?:lol
