I'm Back and The Aprilia was nice

Hey everyone, I'm back! Had a nice little vaction visiting family in Portland. Well while I was there I went to go look at the Aprilia's and the MV Augusta F4, all I can say is they are very beautiful bikes to stare at and drool over. Talked to the sales guy for the longest time and I let it slip that I was visiting from up here and that we don't get those bikes, right away he offered me a ride on the Mille (his own not the demo) to see what it was like and I couldn't refuse. As soon as I took it out I realized DAMN I WAS HOOKED!!!! Just from the street ride alone I had a massive ear to ear grin. By far the highlight of my trip:D Wish I could have taken the MV out:(

i only have to go a couple of blocks to see an MV :D

dont even want to stand to close to it though in case i knock it over

there is a guy in vancouver who has an apprilia mille R and i think he may have another MV also, none of his bikes are registered from what i heard he just slaps the plates from his Duck on


tough life huh

i saw him riding and i did a double take at the mille

yep i though so too, i waved to a guy and he waved back as i got beside him i noticed it was a mille,

i should have given him a high five instead, but you want to hear about lucky

tchan, and a couple other members on this board were at willow springs this weekend and it was the same day they had a mille R demo day at the track

track day plus milles to borrow = hell of alot of fun

until you crash one and forgo your deposit:D
