This past Saturday, we had 4 Falcos in for service at the same time.....kind of a rare event, so we took a picture
one was getting a 600 mile service
one was just getting an oil change and dyno run
one was dropped off for a new set of tires
and the last one is getting a Racetech re-spring/ re-valve fork work

For those of you that have never seen another Falco, imagine my surprise when I saw FOUR of them.
So much for exclusivity! Falco's are still a rare bird though. For perspective... you see everything here in Austin. Not too long ago, I saw TWO MV Agustas on the same day.
By the way, mine is the Black Falco... not the one on the DYNO.
Ed and Micah, thank you for the excellent service!

That's my 02 on the left.
The break in service is done, now if the weather would just break :mad:

One thing that this photo should finally puts to rest is the question of which Falco color is the fastest.
As you can clearly see in the photo, the Black Falco is leading the others into what appears to be a left hand sweeper.

Sorry about that last post - got excited and hit the enter key by mistake(don't ask!)
So what I was trying to say - If those bikes are in fact going through a fast left hand sweeper, whoever was riding the black Falco behind the 2 red ones is having a VERY bad day!

Hmmmm...welll mine is black AND red, combining the two fastest colors.
Not to mention it is a Falco R. The new paint scheme and the letter R combine to give it a great speed advantage. :)

Sorry dudes ... but everyone knows that blue Falcos are the fastest. The reason you don't see mine in this photo is because it's already left those pictured in the dust ... and is currently doing a victory lap.

Heh heh. :rollin:

Boy the red one looks FAST!!!!!!!:p :p :evil:
What a great pic. Wish I was there to check them out, however I'm up in the rain in Seattle on vacation visiting the in-laws.:x
The red one is mine and it's glad to be in AUS and I'm looking forward to softer springs. Now I have to convince the wife that the rear needs a Penske( you know so it's a smoother ride for her.;) ;) ;) ) Ed & Micah were also nice enough to order me a dark wind screen. Can't wait to see how it looks.
Unfortunately, I have to go to work for 5 days after I get back.:mad:

Ok.. This color debate will go on forever probably. I'd like to know if anyone has yet had a custom paint job done to their baby yet? Perhaps color-changing... or just something different.
Jeff.. red/black '02

i'm thinking of a custom paint job for my red/black y2k2. what are your ideas?
03-09-2003, 09:49 PM
Not to my taste, but very well executed.... I'm thinking the '02 color scheme may be growing old for most "R" owners... I've thought of picking up extra body work to put on a new color... There is just an appeal to the simple single color falco... no matter the color.

Somewhere in France, also not my taste but at least you would get a lot of attention.

A Rossi fan perhaps? Just a little!
