    Ape Sighting - Sticky

    Hey guys, Maybe I just never saw it, but we need a Sticky on here to call attention to Aprilia Sightings we all make and want to call attention to. It's so rare to see them, yet just the other day I saw a 1st gen Mille (by Irvine Lake) and before that a white Gen II in the same area. And, I was seeing a red Gen II a few times. I wanted to ask if they're anyone on here. I also see a Tuono at Cooks every Sunday but don't know who it is.

    Mods, Consider making a sticky.

    When I see an Ape rider I usually stalk them until they get off the bike and introduce myself. The key is to not follow to close in your car or you will spook them and then you will never catch em.

    Caught a Falco parked on 14th street in Manhattan yesterday, I think was between 6th & 7th or 7th & 8th. Was in the van so wasn't able to catch any details (mods, plates, etc)...

    This could be a fun "sticky" thread, we shall try it and see I suppose. Spotted this past Saturday on my drive home, red/black 2011 Shiver 750, RR2722 near Canyon Lake, Texas. Try to get/add pics where you can AND if they are relevant.

    Last time I went riding I had some guy keep looking at me menacingly through his tinted visor everytime I looked in the mirror. I'm afraid to go riding again with the mirrors on.
    7.5 Tuono
    Akrapovic Hex Full Street System - hoping to upgrade to EVO6 link pipes soon
    Map2
    Shorty levers
    Gilles rearsets
    1 mirror - just to play by the rules, what's behind me really no longer matters
    Battery Tender
    Cigarette lighter plug - just to keep the damn phone charged
    Stickers - best way to increase HP (just like a Civic!)

    I've gone to war, and jumped out of airplanes, but nothing gives me a bigger adrenaline rush and puts a bigger smile on my face than snapping the throttle open and bringing thunder to the quiet countryside I live in...

    Saw a 2nd gen Mille being trailered behind a Nissan Rouge on I-40 in Greensboro, NC yesterday. Had a personalized Virginia plate that read, H8GSXR. I was trying to get a pic with my phone but couldn't. Are you on here?

    I spend the majority of my time leaned over.

    Saw lots of Apes at the 2T show at Cooks Corner.

    Among them an '04 Factory just like mine (Arrow's and all) except he'd powder coated his OZs black.

    Saw this Tuono out front. Clean.


    Probably 3 or 4 of these there.
