Why did you buy an aprilia and what do you like so much about it?

I was looking for a naked street bike. Almost bought a speed triple, monster, 950SM, or a FZ1. but then I learned about Aprilia by accident from an online forum, checked it out, read reviews, and decided it was perfect for me. There is no aprilia dealer in arkansas, so i drove to New Braunfels, tx to AF1 racing to buy from the guys down there. They took care of me and did a great setup job, so i'm very pleased.

And what don't you like about your bike?

I don't get enough time to ride!!!! Could handle a little more wind protection.

If you could ask Aprilia to design a new model what would it be?

Street legal dual-purpose version of the 550 supermoto

And finally do you have any motorcycling tips for the readers of Aprilia News?

Wear proper gear no matter what, ride within your limits.
