Based on his bike history he likes v twins, the shiver was also cheaper than you would find an fz09(my guess atleast)

Those are great friends. Make good friends with af1 in Austin. They will bend over backwards to help you.

I loved the rc but was wanting something different for awhile now. Was looking into motards then i scrolled across the aprilia. And stared researching them and made me really want it.

Has the same brakes as the rsv1000 and tuono with steel braided brake lines. Has tons of cool electronics im not used to. Has the 3 different riding modes sport touring and rain. Its got the same hp as my buddies moto guzzi sport and its 100lbs lighter. Its beyond comfortable. Its got the fly by wire throttle and is super smooth. It has plenty of power and i Got it for a steal. Its also great looking!

I don't like undertail exhaust in general and am glad Ducati moved away from them. They get hot for Houston. I think for looks they are great though.


I love orange. My first bike was orange and I miss it.
