Black is the fastest colour.  Everybody knows that.

Is that why itís the rarest colour? 😉

I didnít see any black ones for sale in my price band.

Wow. Well the heavens opened as the bike was delivered but sun came out again a few hours later and I was able to go for a FIRST RIDE!

What a fun bike. Enough poke, nothing stupid. Brakes that work. Comfy. Corners like a beaut. I'm happy as a pig in muck.

I have discovered that I am completely not bike fit but I know a way to fix that ;)  :biker1:

You know that feeling when you're flying along as the sun sets and the view is incredible and you're just whooping and singing in your helmet, yep that.  :celebrate: Thanks to the V Forum for helping push me over the edge into choosing this bike.

Pics to follow...

Thanks, and yep, as forums go this one is a little "irregular"  :whistle:. Very little bullsh#t and lots of quality help.  :031:
I think the lack of political correctness/SJWs is the lifeblood. In some other places, just joking about Rebecca would have you "cancelled".

If one looks closely at my V's white and black paintwork in bright sunlight you may see it is full of very fine glitter. It may even be holographic glitter. Do all the Mk2 bikes have glittery paintjobs?

I think the headlight is cool.

Another wee ride today (a quick 60 minute blast to pick up a curry) & I was having way too much fun to get my camera out. I must start backing up my blethering with photos. POIDH. :211:

The Mk1's smoother simpler lines make for a quieter ride too. Less wind turbulence.
