Big Sur-
If Effigy doesn't want it I do. It should fit the 950 I'm trying to sell and a new bag would look a lot better.

Aprilia 1200

Hey all,

I just picked up the Dorsoduro 1200 for review. I'll have it for two weeks, I think. What a monster! TONS of power with the biggest, juiciest midrange of any bike in recent memory.

This is the first bike I've tried (and I get to ride whatever I want) that I'd trade the SM for. More as I get some saddle time.

Jason

Been curious about that bike, look forward to a real world review.

This will be interesting.....I like the looks of the Dorsodura but I dont' trust the company support from Aprilia......will be keeping my SM..too versatile to give up....

By the way, pls skip the " Deerslayer Survivability Test" this year ;-)

Gettin cold and frosty here. I might have a couple of dry rides left, if I am lucky. I hope to hit Mackenzie Pass (OR 242) one last time to squirt around on the leaves, but I ain't counting that chicken til it hatches...

I may be tearing apart the bike for winter cleaning/tuning, sooner than later, with the weather report calling for more snow on top of the passes.

Keep burning rubber the rest of you with dry roads!

The recent snow storm took the left side of my house off - 100 foot oak with most of it's leaves and a very heavy, wet snowfall.

The bikes are safe.

Wow!! That is some wet snow. Glad noone was harmed in the falling of that tree! Hope your insurance co is on Gov't assistance so you can get paid. Can't imagine the mess that made. Wishing you the best for your homes recovery.

We are scheduled to get our first snowfall here over the next couple of days. The kids are excited and my Snowhawk is pissed (since I spent all my time and money this summer riding the 950 instead of fixing the Hawk)...

I'm curious to see what you're up to. To steal a line from a magazine, the stock seats are weapons of ass destruction! At about 175 miles, my buns are toast!

Similar here..in the short run I bought a 15 Walmart ATV pad which helped a lot...add seat thickness, about an inch in width which is critical, and allows air to flow between your butt and the seat vinyl...cheap fix until I get off my butt and send my seat to Sargents..
