Congrats on the new Capo. Is that the Crooked River in the background by any chance?

It is indeed the Crooked River Canyon, good eye! Fun road for the Capo. Had just ridden over 400 miles on a roundabout trip home from buying it and wanted to go ride some more so met up with a friend and his Tuono. Yeah, he's a good photographer...

I've driven through there on a fishing trip in my Avalanche but haven't been through on the bike. I need a 5pc 5wt so I can flyfish while m/c roaming.

Is that matte black a factory finish from '02? Looks great. Mine's metallic red and I"m not particularly fond of red.

I see several Caponord "goodies" on that new purchase. Nice score!

YES, this color combo (flat black) looks VERY nice.

If it makes you feel any better I don't like red very much either.
Guess what color our boat is...... RED!!!!

Yes it has lots of goodies, some you can see and some you can't. Staintune pipes, Sargent seat, Ricor intimidators, Borella R/R, soldered connections, Givi screen, Givi topcase rack, FAMSA tank bag, only 18k miles and it is in nearly new condition! Zero buyer's remorse here

I'm interested in a stock Capo screen if someone has one to sell. The Givi is too tall for me, top edge is in my line of sight at times.

Just picked this one up. It seems to have the electrical sorted. Still has the too short side stand though. I sure hope I like this bike.

you can order the Rally Raid sidestand (or the euro version) which is straight, but also a tad long.. I had to cut off about half an inch of it, but way better then the stupid US bent side stand.. lots of info over on the aprilia forums

If it's sorted, I'll be shocked if you aren't blown away.

Comfort, agility, and style.

Get it sprung correctly for your weight. Get the catfish map installed ASAP. Each transform the bike.
