Hi,

I'd just like to introduce myself, my name is Wayne, I've just purchased a very clean 09 plate Gladius. I have been riding for 8 years and have got this for a bit of fun. I don't know much about them yet and I've got no doubt I'll need a lot of help of you all.

Hopefully get to know a lot of you over the coming years.

Ride safe

Not many owners on here, probably because its called a Gladius and not an Sv650 Gladius

Nowt wrong with it, so stay onboard

They softened the looks with the Gladius and many (men) think it looks girly. In fact, the only Gladius owner that I have spoken with was a woman and she loved it.
