Aprilia dealers!?!?

Alright guys, I'm looking for recommendations on Aprilia dealers in Texas. I'm trying to buy my first brand new bike and i want to purchase it from a dealer with good customer service, and more importantly, a good reputable service department. Anyone have any experiences they would like to share? I'm open to any and all stories you may have.
BTW, I know some of you are wondering what i want, so here it is. . .
http://www.apriliausa.com/modelli/of...llo.asp?id=111

High speeds no longer amuse me, and this beast will work equally well out on the racetrack, so I think I'm going to do it.

the suzuki is a slow, overweight, underpowered pig. I appreciate the quality of the KTM, but if I'm going to drop the coin, I'm getting the Aprilia.
I really like the husqvarna SMR510, but for less than $50 more a month i can have the 62HP growling V-Twin from the Aprilia.
As far as the price, i believe they're currently asking one arm and one leg, but i figure i can learn to ride like that anyhow .
I've heard of 07's going OTD for $7500, if i can get that I would be shocked.

Ex-Imports needs to be Ex-Ported!!!
I may have to go back to working offshore to cover this bad boy, but the two weeks off a month will make it all good!!!!!!!

These guys are unreal!! Ask Mad Max when he gets back. Customer service from them is beyond all expectations. They even offered to pick up/drop off my bike from Houston. Their open house is coming up the weekend of the 12th, probably gonna have some sales. Get in touch with them. There is a reason that I used them for everthing when I was in Hawaii, they are that good and their prices are even better.

You are a fool to go anywhere else.

Mike

Max ws looking hard at the Aprila supermoto. You know he gave it a lot of thought before making a decision to get something else. He must really like that crf!
