I'm going to lose my license

As some of you know my Ducati hypermotard was totalled because I was rear ended. It quite possibly the best all round bike I have ever owned. For some reason I have no interested in owning an inline four "crotch rocket" ever again. Just doesn't do it for me as I don't miss my built to shit GSXR 1000 just one bit.Every bike I own now is eitehr a single or a v-twin. Well now I needed to replace it with something a little lighter and more "motard like". I give you my next "dirty girl". She knows where it goes

2008 Aprilia SXV 550 with 1530 miles.

Yes I did. The owner I bought it from bought it from a very good friend of mine who lives in Miami, FL. I called him to make sure the bike was good to go and once I got the go ahead I pulled the trigger. The guy I bought it from put less than 100 miles on it once he shipped it up here from FL.


This quite possible could be the baddest bike I have owned.

It has a b-stones on it now. Then the next set will be Dunlop Q's as I just yanked the set of new Q2's of my totaled Hypermotard.

That's a wicked little bike. Looks fun!

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

You should have seen it recently. Had ALOT of add on mods on it when I was in the wreck.

Wiat till you see this one in person.


Talk about a bike with just crazy power. Also seeing that it weighs only 280 pounds helps out in the matter also.

Damn that looks fun!

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
