Great town

Wow! St. Augustine is a great place. Lots of sandy beaches for castles and evening walks.
Best town in Florida. Let me know how the move goes and when you get here we can go riding if you like.

I have one with 20,000 miles. Rode it from California to Florida via Utah and Colorado. Plenty of power, got 50 plus mpg. Great bike! Best bike I have owned in my 40 plus years of riding.

Tall screen for Aprilia Shiver

I had a company make up a tall screen using the puig hardware. It works well. Quiet, no buffeting, and blocks the wind nicely. Looks good too!
