Where are all of you Aprilia riders?

I can't believe there aren't more posts here. I don't own one, but do ride with a guy who has one. Last year he had a Buell, but it kept falling apart if he revved it over 4000, which is what you have to do to really ride it.

Now he has a Falco, black. Very nice. Beautiful. Race pipes sound great. Makes me suck wind. He can nail me on the straight, and he's better in the corners than he was on the Buell. My bike is a pig compared to his.

I would think that Aprilia enthusiasts would be here touting their most recent feats and experiences on those great machines. Where are you guys?

Motorcycles are cheaper than therapy.

Aprilia owners are very similar to Ducati owners. High-browed snotty types who think their fecal matter has no odor. They think they are too good for the rest of the motorcycling world, so they congregate on their own little brand-specific message boards and thumb their noses at everyone else. It's that whole "I buy Italian" ego trip.

So I can assume you'll have your 996 next week?

I'm having hard time choosing between the 996 and the Mille R, Paul.

That's o.k., Pete. As long as it's Italian, I don't think it really matters.

Welcome to the club.

Welcome to the club.
Don't give him the secret handshake just yet. He still has to go through the "I ride Italian so you can kiss my mother f**kin' ass" workshop, pass the tests, and survive initiation- or don't you remember

And lastly....I'm right here. Anyone else on a Falco/Mille/Futura/250/Scooter out there (add chirping sound of crickets here ).

Funny you should mention that about the Buell. I chose the Falco over the X1 Lightning for just that reason. Was your friend riding the X1? Beautiful bike, but I have heard many nightmare stories about reliability.

Enjoy the pic...
