I'm hopefully going to make a move on an 02' RSV Mille in the next month or so. (Not hopefully as much as I WILL find a way to get this bike, lol) Just wanted to see if there was anyone else around to ride with this summer.

Good to hear there are so many Ape riders in Ohio.

Just don't build it up too much in your mind, and you'll probably be OK.

I go just to get a bit of a 'motorcycle fix' to help me make it through to riding season.

You talkin' about Fire Dragon? Haven't heard from him in a long time.

Can't wait for this freakin' weather to break. If you guys have an idea for a ride, post in the "Rides" section.

Anyone doing Bluegrass this year? Looks like track on the cheap for me this year. Looks like a lot of private events at Putnam Park for me.

I am over in Bellbrook with an 01 in the stable for sale. Blue and in EC. Let me know if you have any interest and I can give you my #. Not looking to sell her immediately as I want to get my 02R sorted out and tested on the track before parting with the 01. Ask badmotorscooter (he's good peeps) about me - the bike is legit.

Let me know if you want to check out Addio's Mille. I've seen that damn thing go around me plenty of times. Addio is probably the fastest, safest rider I know - that's a hard combination to get right. I'd probably meet you there, just pick out a warm day.

Well damnit, that bike was trashed...and the owner of that business didn't want to budge on his asking price period. Not to mention he was a complete dick after I offered $500 less that what he was asking. The bike also seems to have acquired more wounds in the time it has been with them.

Poor bike. :mad:

Guess I'm off to looking again. If anybody knows of a nice Mille I've got $5000 to spend on one, and I want one bad. I'm jones'in after one ride with that motor.

After Bluegrass, I'm doing Putnam Park on April 25th and 26th with Cycle Options out of Cincy. I love M-O, but it's kind of pricey with STT. I am on the cheap this year, and the private clubs offer a little bit of a price break. No more hotel rooms and partying with the homeys the nights before for me (well, OK, maybe a few times). It'll be getting up at the butt-crack of dawn and driving, shacking up with friends and acting a lot like a homeless person.

Anyway, if anyone wants to go to Putnam, let me know. It's a nice, grippy track with plenty of runoff.

Cycle Co. ?

Just to give you some info, the bike is very mechanically sound from what I can tell, but it has scratches all over the place. And he won't budge off of his price. I didn't goose it or do anything stupid when I rode it, but it seemed like a tight bike, just bad fairings. Akrapovic exhaust gave it low end that even made my Mille feel flaccid.

Good luck!

Holy crap! I love those. Is the owner on the forum? Actually, I'd love to have an RS250 for the track.

I should have gone out with you guys, but yard work between MotoGP and World SUperbike races won out... along with my son's soccer game.

I'll be running at Mid-Ohio tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon. Friday, I'm taking off work. This weekend I have my son's soccer tournament during Saturday and Sunday. Sunday evening, I'm riding to Indyto see my parents. If anyone's got ideas, let me know. Quaker Steak on Thursday afternoon/evening is an idea for a get-to-know.

The Bike Night is Wednesdays. I was there yesterday, but didn't see any other Aprilias. I was troubled though. An all male band playing a cover of the Divinyl's "I touch myself." And a bunch of chaps wearing people grooving to it. My head hurts. My girlfriend asked what was wrong when I got home, and all I could do was whimper. I'm still in the fetal position. Always up for a spirited motorcycle ride though!

I will be there, though just a little late. It goes 6-9, and I get there about 8:20 or so.

I usually stear clear of this one, as there are hundreds of bikers. The kind with instant attitude, just add bike- and then they go back to their job selling shower curtain rings afterwards. But there are some good people in the area, and nothing makes for a good day like flying through the curves with some of them. The bike night- meh....

Hey Guys, I am looking to get my bike worked on. I live in Miamisburg, OH. Its a 2000.5 Mille

I was riding the other day and it just died on me at a stop light. I get DIAG code 1 on my screen when on dealer mode. I moved and adjusted the TPM sensor to Diag code 0 and it still goes back to 1 after attempting to start. I also checked battery (its new) and checked the voltage. I checked the fuses as well and the tip over sensor.

The bike turns on - i hear the whirrr (fuel injection), and then I hit the start button and engine wants to turn over but it doesn't. I also replaced the start motor with the yamaha one because the aprilia one had died.

I know its something simple I am missing but I don't know what. And I don't have a lotta time to diagnose and repair it. Not to mention that I am not really mechanically inclined.

So I am looking for someone to:
- Diagnose & Fix the problem
- Change the Spark Plugs

Please help!
