Soo long 9er

So I did it. I traded my 07' 919 of an 03 Aprilia Tuono. Luckily this isn't a 919 specific forum, hopefully no one bites my head off. But it's an awesomr bike and I'm lovin it.

Yeah, sorry no pics yet. I can't find the charger for the camera. And i have no intention on leaving this forum. The aprilia forum blows. all they talk about is limey kilometers and how much pounds or euros something costs.

spendy? is there much about an Aprilia that is inexpensive? lol... I bet you'll have a BLAST on it no matter what mirrors are on it! And i suppose we can let you hang around...

30,000 mile 919 survivor. No plans of stopping the abuse any time soon.

^^ They arent really out of range with other bikes -I just priced a OE mirror for a 919 and they are 48.77 from Ron Ayers.com -

Im with you guys on the Aprilia forum, not real helpful at all - Althogh , if you email the guys form the shop, they are really cool -

Nice trade Retard. One of these days I'm gonna get me some of that sexy Italian poon tang and ride hell out of her, er, it.
How about giving us your riding impressions now that you got YOUR sexy Italian rocket ride all cleaned up?

The bikes awesome. cold tires on a cold road and the bike still handles better then the nine on a sunny hot day. The warm up times not nearly as good as the niner. but oh well it takes me forever to gear up any way.
