    Think that dude is from Florida? He rides up here a good bit. His Tuono is pretty tight, has a bunch o good stuff bolted on it and 60k on the odo. Talked to him at the BP on Merrimon in NAvl a year or so ago.

    Do they service bikes there, or is he only there to service bikes before they go up for sale?

    I also saw a silver Futura with large white "aprilia" stickers on the side in west Asheville/Enka last Saturday. I think I may know who that is too.
    Does it have a stock exhaust? That's the one I keep seeing. I seen him recently in Woodfin, about a 1/2 mile from my house then by the BMW dealership when I was getting oil for my bike.

    He's everywhere.

    No, that's Billy you're talking about. He sold that bike for a Super Duke and he hates it LOL... He's a 70 year small guy who was an original Navy Seal. He's originally from Texas but has been living in Brevard for the last 20 years.

    I don't know about that place. I passed by there the other day on the way back off the BRP.

    No idea, every time I've seen him I've been going the opposite direction, so I don't get a good look.

    I wouldn't say hate. To quote him, he said that he would buy another Tuono if there was better dealer support nearby and sell his SD.

    I've seen a rider on a magnet gray Gen 1 Tuono commuting in Goleta, CA quite a few times over the past year or two. Nice looking bike that I would imagine has some solid miles on it!
