APRILIA TUONO OWNERS, others welcome

thought I might try this as was boring my Adventure Bike buddies with all my rantings about my Tuono

Tuono means thunder and the live up to the name particurly once pipes are added and the upright riding position makes them a thrill to ride as the extra rearward weighting and the non detuned motor make for lots of wheelies even at speeds up to 140kph if you do it all right.
My personal reason for purchasing was that I wanted a medium level track bike that I could live with on the road and I couldnt cope with the wrist killing sports bike position.
Have been bought up on dirt bikes and more resently adventure bikes upright is more natural for me and the fact that the chassis is straight from the RSV minus side fairing makes it a good Track proposition
