    That is beautiful! Would you recommend the 850 kit? I do quite like the revvy nature of a standard 750 but it’s always good to have more power!

      Vicente, I used to have an 850 T160 and now have a P&M 850.  It makes the engine more tractable over a wider rev range, so it is more responsive at lower revs, for example in traffic .  The P&M is mostly used on the road but it still revs very freely, delivering plenty of power for track use as well.  I’d recommend it.

        Just as David says Vicente , makes for a sweet engine and would wholeheartedly recommend it .

        Did you enjoy riding the RGB for Gary ,

          Thanks for replies, David and Peter. I will seriously consider an 850 kit for the future. With taller gearing it should give more relaxed cruising as well!

           

          I did enjoy riding the RGB very much, Peter. It’s a special bike and I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity!

    Don, Peter took it to Beezumph again last year and I followed him on the ride out. I left my ear plugs out on purpose and rode behind Peter, owesome.
