    I hate tank bags and couldn't use my backpack as I had just had open heart surgery 3 months before and my chest was still killing me. The tail pack was full of underpants and pain killers enough for a weeks travel I managed 3 days before staying put in the hotel bar.

    Yes the wife did go wild when I told her I was still going, can't let the lads down!!!!

    wow riding a mille so soon after heart surgery lol thats crazy

    am not as big a fan of tank bags anymore, would not be such a problem if it attached to the tank properly.. but i have a plastic tank, and the suction cups are temperamental little buggers.. did a U turn other day and the bag slid sideways.. thought i stalled the bike for the first time in 4 years.... nope the bag hit the kill switch 0_o

    kinda neccesary when you cant get sidebags (exhausts too high for any make out there...) and you run out of room in tailpack & backpack, still its a fun challenge to see how much junk you can safely fit to the bike and carry somewhere lol

    garvey - i see you are one of those maniacs who puts a 500 lid hanging precariously on the mirrors LOL hopefully it dont fall off

    Nah she stayed on, its stuck between the screen and the tankbag, not going anywhere, that was my favourite helmet, still got it but old, faded and stone chipped

    Did you notice I had the saddle bags around the wrong away , only noticed when I got to IOM

    ahhh ok thats a little better i guess :p seriously cant believe when i see arai and shoei being dangled on a flimsy mirror... not with the crazy winds we been getting lately

    funny bout the saddle bags, they still fit even the wrong way! i spent ages trying to figure a way to get them for my bike but every time they would be a little too close to the top of exhaust

    yeah i wasnt sure about the red scheme at first but its def grown on me.. just a shame it was one of the only years aprilia was too cheap to include a single seat cowl thingy to cover up the pillion pad.. so i aint got one and they are stupidly hard to find not to mention stupid money

    really like the black ones though, considered custom spraying mine to be pure black.. stealth fighter style but i will prob keep it stock for a while yet

    and yeah 99p for those? bargain! lol they would probably fit ok on an older shape mille less it has high level exhausts

    Two months after these pictures I was back in for another OP. I am completely F****D for any more riding this year so this forum and Practical Sportsbike magazine is keeping me interested until 2012. I have used a subtle blend of emotional blackmail and lies to ensure the wife has agreed to let me go away again next year. She only said yes when I started asking for sex again!!!!!!!!!!!
