Just brought home my new ride (an Aprilia)

I just picked up this 2004 Aprilia Mille Factory for a smokin' deal....

Full Akrapovich exhaust system.... A little over a thousand miles on her... at a fraction of the cost of a new one.

Believe it or not, it was owned by an actor who only rode it on Sundays, and then, not very far or for very long. He said he babied it because he was afraid to be bucked onto his azz.. (He's an older guy-- but gotta hand it to him, he's still ridin').

He only had it for a few month (since this February I think), then decided he wanted something a bit tamer.

I guess that's my good fortune...

Wow, Nice Bike, Nice truck also, is that a Ridgeline? How do you like it? I have an Accord, but I am thinking about a Ridgeline in about a year or 2. Sorry, don't mean to hijack your thread.

No worries bro.. Yep, that's a brand new Ridgeline. I picked it up last month. The only reason in the world I bought a Ridgeline was to haul my three bikes.... Been pissin' off the folks on the Ridgeline forum, because up until today, I've only driven the truck 4 times since I got it 4 weeks ago. I keep tellin' the folks on the Ridgeline forum that my truck is for haulin' bikes, not for cruisin' guess they think I should be driving the truck more, but damn, it's been too nice out to ride in a truck.

Just got back from a spin on the Aprilia, and all I gotta say is the factory Mille is sweeeeet..

That's a sweet bike!
I've ridden two so far and loved every thing except the reach to the bars.

I don't doubt you got a smokin' deal. Resale values on Aprilias blow. (or rock, depending on whether you're buying or selling...)

They're AWESOME bikes. Incredible handling (only talked down about by the bike mags due to their lack of advertising $$$ spent), great power, etc.. They are, IMHO, the best bang for the buck on the market in regards to quality for your money. Fit and finish is second to none.
