I took the bike to have a minor repair last week. I've got an ominous call today. They found the radiator empty and a whole lot of water mixed in with the oil. Damned Aprilia!!!! This is not only going to cost Aprilia. It's also going to cost Ducati. I was planning on buying a Hypermotard in a few months, perhaps after Grattan. Change of plans. Back to old trusty Honda. I think I might get an old VFR. I need something to commute 80 miles to work, every day. Damned Aprilia!!! I couldn't resist... It was a good run while it lasted, I keep telling myself. Now to wait for the damage report.
