Funny, I don't remember Mullholland being near a stream?....
Love it Andre , introduce your kids to bikes at an early age ... then you can share the same passion/hobby.
My boys LOVE bikes
Great Bike, but lots of service! I ran a Husqvarna 450 and a 510 for a couple years, lots of service with those , but nothing like that Ape. Hope you have deep pockets.However, to address your actual point, I have been slacking for some time now. The 750 Turbo isn't on the road and I have been searching for a long time for one of these in decent shape. I test rode this yesterday and if my mechanic like it, I'm picking up my first sumo - I want something different. With this on hand, I predict I will not be able to stop riding
Aprilia's tiny little 550 Vtwins are total beasts. They're an actual race motor though so frequent rebuilds, which is why my mechanic needs to sign-off on my purchase. He has worked on these a lot so I just need to find one that's serviceable. Fingers crossed.
Before I applied myself to shopping, I researched rebuild costs (6K and 12K mile). Three mechanics told me that if it's not actually being raced, they just don't bother with the rebuilds. No point replacing pistons & rings if compression is good. Guys on the Aprillia forum say they go 45K kms without constantly being wrenched.Great Bike, but lots of service!

Fuck yeah ... take lots of pics brother.
