Way to go Ed!!!!

I was not aware that AF1 is a good Aprilia dealer. What's wrong with the locals?

Used to go very often to NB but I never stop by to check the store. Will do it next time.

I have always like Hayabusas but it will a waste of bike in my hands.

Wow that is quite a bike Ed, congratulations. Micah built the motor on one of my bikes and it was a joy to ride, they do awesome work over there and I've heard nothing but great things.

Wow!! Me gusta!

Yeah the 2012s are not near as good looking as this model IMO. The side panels that cover the radiator and other extra bits of plastic really take away from the over all unique look of a tuono and make it look more like a sportbike. Also that exhaust on the new one is atrocious. The lines on this 10 are just very drastic and staccato which gives it this look of mystery and uncertainty. Like WTF is he about to do type of look, but it all flows to make a really bold statement in a gorgeous machine.

Right, guess you missed that huge of plastic on the 2010. That's not the stock exhaust dumba**. Very few bikes I see have stock pipes on going down the road anyways. The 2012 engine is a new animal but I guess you don't care about that.

"Like WTF is he about to do type of look, but it all flows to make a really bold statement in a gorgeous machine." WFT is right, about this statement.

Not knockin your bike Racer just some of these idiots on this board and dumbass comments drive me f* nuts.
