    Thought the Futura was done last April when the water pump failed,
    but the parts were about $50 and the fix is working.
    Perhaps I'll retire it soon at 100k miles.

    The FJR has 45k miles.

    Come on down for a ride visit !

    Feb '19 Ride

    Warm for Feb, but still chilly with Wolf Pen better suited to a Dual Sport,
    yet GA60 was clean and fabulous.
    So good to get out and ride to the painted moonscape.

    Hey North Georgia Riders - where do you get your Aprilia serviced?

    I had my Aprilia serviced where I bought it in 2014, in Dahlonega, Ga, until the owners retired and closed the business. Since then, it has been Matthews Fun Machines in Charlotte, NC. Now the owning family has just sold and closed their business. Where next? Where do you get yours serviced?

    Mine is a Mana 850, and I need a belt change, and other routine service that needs the Aprilia diagnostic software and a couple special tools - and the best would be an Aprilia trained mechanic...

    Thanks in advance.

    Now fun machines is closing also? Wow all you have now is savannah, they need to open another dealer soon! I talked to the reps a few years ago at COTA and the were looking for locations in the area but I have not seen anything pop up? Maybe check with Ducati they might help? We do have the Duc shop in Marietta Ga, not sure if they will touch Aprilia? But if its a warranty thing it will have to go savannah. ( Dam sucks having none in the area and sales) AF1 is our only help! At least get the parts from.

    I don't have a warranty issue, but need an experienced Aprilia tech, the diag software, and a special tool for my job.

    Here is what I learned from Bill Shenk, of another business in Charlotte, NC:

    "First the sole owner of MFM was John Stricklin and his wife. She is battling cancer and he just had both knees replaced.. they have been trying to get Jack to buy the dealership for the last 7yrs and after losing about 1,000 per day last 2 yrs I was contacted to close it for them and stop the bleeding.. I’ve also agreed to purchase the remaining assets and we are making application for the BRP products and most likely the Europeans as well. We also offered employment to all MFM folk and will do all we can to support the existing customers as we are the closest dealer to that location "
