    mattwade24 I swapped out mainly damaged '15 motorsport fairings for HP4 rep, 'love the HP4 . . I bought mine new in '15, put 8k miles on in the first year, dropped it countless times negotiating my bike trailer at 5 in the morning
    departing for tracks, then got more serious and put the GRP fairings on it. Yours looks lovely, enjoy.

    I do like my HP4, but have put it up for sale as the V4 itch is there to scratch. No getting away from the fact that the BMW is an awesome machine.

    Hi MattO, yea, no doubt the Duc V4 is an exceptional machine, and like you I was lusting for one for a little while. Maybe 18 months back I got to hear and experience the full glory of the V4S. It was again at Almeria,
    I was literally right up it's exhaust for 5 laps, his bike must have been only weeks old and he was riding it well and hard. It was a little frustrating as I just couldn't get past him, I was a little faster in the corners but as soon
    as we passed the apex he opened the taps, and the Duc pulled 3 bike lengths on me. It was a really memorable session, such a beautiful bike, and although I should have held back a little to give some error room I just couldn't
    help myself!

    Just wish I could see my bike, It's been track only for about 3 years now, and it's parked up at Almeria track in Spain which I last visited in October thinking I'd be back in the spring. Thanks to Covid
    I doubt I'll see it till next year now, I didn't disconnect the battery, nothing, as they're normally good for 4 months or so, but I'm now not knowing what to do, will probably have to sell, as trackdays
    probably aren't on my list of priorities any more sadly. I don't regret it, had some great times, life eh, got to love it haha
