    Proud owner of my first ever Aprilia.

    I have a grin from here to there! I am the proud new owner of this absolute peach!!


    APRILIA rsv millie 1000cc sports bike. full service history. mint. low miles. | eBay

    She is an absolute beauty and I cant wait to get her insured and get out for a blast! Its my forst ever litre bike and my first ever twin so I have absolutely no idea what to expect. All I imagine is that there is going to be a lot of poke under my right wrist and Ill need to take her steady. Any tips?

    Depends on what you have had before, twins can seem a bit jerky at low revs, but there's no sudden powerband to deal with.
    Just enjoy grunting out of corners at 5000 rpm !
    5000 miles in ten years, amazing how some bikes never get used......
