SB1250 has traded the Bandit

Post  sb1250 on Fri 19 Jun 2015, 6:34 pm

Well, time for a change. I'd been looking at something a little different to commute on, and maybe spark my desire to go for a ride over the weekend. The Bandit had served me well, but for me, it lacked something.
Anyway, I'm sure I'll be lurking this forum from time to time, and wish you all well.






It's an Aprilia Tuono 1100 Factory.........

Good job there SB1250.  Hope to see you on the road (maybe at a Blessing of the Bikes meet?).  Good luck with the Aprilia, it looks like a weapon.  But an early commiseration on the SBK world championship - I don't see Aprilia winning it from here!

Thanks for the wishes gents. This forum has been fantastic, lots of great help and info, and a fair few characters as well. Like I said, I'll be lurking coz it's too hard to just vanish from this place!

Re the pipe.....it's the loudest stock pipe I've ever heard, and I kinda like the stock look.

Ewok, I haven't followed the Motogp or Supers in a fair while. Might be a good excuse to get the kids interested now! Mick Doohan or Aaron Slight still racing?!??!?  Razz 

cheers

All the very best, and I love it.  That is a nice lookin' bike mister.  Please post up a couple of reports on how it rides and such.  I'm sure plenty of us will be interested.

ps.  You will have gotten Gus's juices flowing.  Very Happy

Beware the lurkers, you never know when one will raise it's ugly head.

Great choice SB, I too would love to hear your thoughts on it after a settling in period.
So jealous right now, what a sweet ride.

well done mate.

I am very very jealous to say the least.

The tuono v4 is one of my all time favourites, and on my bucket list.

Please doooo...give a right up on the 1100. Keen to hear? 

I know what the 1000 is like, and I could live with it no worries at all. Very raw, but that suits me.

Best of luck.
