    Talking Aprilia's most loyal customer

    I am claiming this prize at the moment, had Mille's since 1998, here they are in order, now on my fourth incarnation of them, covered over 60k miles on them too, with very little bother really, i just luv these babes

    First was a lovely Tri Colour, i still have a soft spot for this bike



    next was this 2001R ..............nearly bought an SP at the time



    it was retired as a road bike and converted to the track........



    next along was an 04 factory...............



    it is now being converted to a track only bike, the 01R is sold and the road bike is now this baby.........



    I have had no real desires to own any other marque really since buying my first Mille, previous to the Mille i had all the IL4 jap stuff, Blades, Exups etc., it just seems that the Aprilia is the thing that rocks my boat.

    Anyone more loyal than me then

    Love the look of the Factory. Personally I like the gold frame, goes so well with those wheels.

    05 bike rode as it should be and maintained as it should be they think that the clutch basket failed, on opening her up it looked like she had taken ectasy and had a wild party inside with a hammer and chisel all under warranty thankfully

    got to admit it though a big thanks went to southern cross, he knows how she gets ridden and when she went on the track but that is what they were designed for i suppose and she has done a few miles

    Following the service/repair bill with the last bike I'm hoping to be as happy and content with this one as you are Badger!
