Yes the "Factory" made it home in one piece. It really me off when Tom pointed out my missing bolts. I've already emailed my dealer to send some over. Paul was great, came through in the clutch!!

Beautiful bike. An Italian is bound to have a few quirks. One loose bolt beats the 1098 stalling issue.

LOL!! Thats what I was telling Paul. He cracked a joke saying "should have known, its italian". He said this before I realized what he was riding, and invariably, he experience the stalling issues. The Aprilia is considered the Honda of italian bikes, the thing is bulletproof. The only real quirk it has is the non existent rear brake, and for the 04-05 model years the clutch had problems.

You have nothing to be jealous about PaPa, you own a classic, and in the right color too; BLACK.

What Pirellis do you have? Corsa IIIs or Supercorsas? I have supercorsas, and their fantabulous on the track, but horrid for street use. I plan on changing to Corsa IIIs, my understanding is that they are good for both purposes.

Hey bigzona, aren't you the guy from Jersey? I didn't realize it was you! It was good to meet you, bro. Remember, you need to hit Brother's Pizzeria one day.
