Recommended Aprilia dealership ?

The wife wants us to buy a new RSVR and I'm not trying too hard to talk her out of it. I've been to "that place" on the SW side and was not impressed. I haven't heard many nice comments about them either.

Has anyone had good experiences with another dealer?

I called and Ed answered the phone. He took the time to answer all my questions. He invited me to come see the place, sit on the bikes, test ride the demo, etc.

Somebody please buy my XR650L so I can go buy a new bike !!!!

Hate to beat the dead horse, but AF1 RULES!!! There's not a dealer (new manuf stuff) in Houston that can touch their service (sales and service). These guys are for real.
