    I know you owned a Shiv, but have you ridden the DD yet. They didn't put the gear indicator on the DD!

    Maybe he means the one I use, the "crap, I can't remember which gear I've shifted into so I'll pull in the clutch and down shift all the way to 1st and then know where I'm starting" meter.

    Snarking comment (mine) apart, does anyone know if the GiPro X works with the DD?

    Whaaaa? It's the same EVERYTHING, sigh Aprilia you be so weird.

    I guess they figured Shiver owners needed a bit extra help ha. I never used it anyway.

    It's not strictly necessary, but it would certainly be nice to have. Especially around town when I'm not sure how many gears I've grabbed.

    Oh well. It'd be cool if there was an aftermarket part that was more or less bolt on though.
