    Yellow Tuono V4 @2222/620 today. Looked like a Rev'it jacket. Just what I needed to see… went crazy with jealousy. I'm often in that neck of the woods so perhaps we'll see you again.

    Saw a black RSV4 going up & down N4 (back side of Angeles Crest) Sunday. Guy looked like he was having fun, but clearly showing restraint due to the gravel on the road. I was on my RSVR along with my buddy on his white frame 900SS and another buddy on his GoldWing.

    Saw a RSV4 Factory going north bound on the 405 today just south of the Venice blvd exit,

    (edit) and today I saw a black RSV4 with 2 other bikes on the 138. Also last Sat I was test riding the Tuono V4 and a white RSV4 pulled up next to me. There's quite a few around here.

    something tells me the black one you saw on 138 was the same one I saw. Same general area.

    Eldersburg, MD. I was sitting at the red light at the Rt26 / Rt32 intersection, saw a gray RSVR come through the intersection. Really took me by surprise to see one. There's a few other Aprilia owners who live near me, but I've never seen them on the road.

    I keep seeing this blue/white 7.5 Tuono on my way to school in the morning. As I sit here, I can see it out in the parking lot. Almost like it followed me here... Igor Sikorsky Memorial Airport, CT, USA

    I just started seeing what I believe is a 2009 new red Mana at the US Capitol in D.C. where I work. It parked in the same spots I park in. Darn I wish my 2010 Mana Gt was back from the 12k service to have an Aprilia majority. It's nice to over shadow the Harley's!

    Went to the Duc shop in Omaha to pick up my bike and saw a 2nd Gen Tuono Factory on the lift. Don't know who's it is, only other Aprilia I've seen in the last 3 cities I have lived in (El Paso, Manhattan KS, and now Omaha NE).

    2 Tuono sightings in one day - Grand Rapids, MI

    Yesterday at lunchtime, someone rode a beautiful blue gen 2 Tuono into the Kentwood Aprilia dealer as I was pulling out. It sounded Phenomenal.

    Then on the way home I saw a yellow Tuono V4R headed eastbound on I-96 just east of Plainfield.

    Either of those bikes belong to members?

    Yesterday at station 5 (just below current snow-line) on Mt Fuji, Japan - a grey silver Shiver GT, all stock except for a colourful (gold with blue spring) Nitron shock. Took photos but lack the means to upload from camera via wife's Ipad atm. No sign of the rider but seemed be keeping company with red Duc streetfighter. Bike park was full of local gay Pirates on all sorts of blinged-up Harleys, with only a smattering of sports bikes.

    A few days before the wife and I were astonished to see a pristine white MG V7 Classic (identical to her recently traded model) in comapany with a red Duc Monster S4 outside a restaurant in Takayama. The Guzzi was also stock except for a nice pair of Ohlins rear suspenders. Again snapped some shots, but had to dissuade wife from going in search of the owners who were probably inside the restaurant enjoying a quiet lunch.
