Oh, for some reason I was thinking that it was single sided.

If you're referring to the caps retaining the axle on the end of the swingarm, they appear to be 8mm, and are loaded in tension only. There's no way that there can be shear loading because the swing arm and cap each encircle half of the axle and are rigidly clamped to the axle.

The Aprilia Falco has to be one of the absolute STEALS in all of motorcycling. I regularly see lightly used ones for sale on CL for right around $4k or less.

If I weren't so attached to my SV1000 I'd probably already own one.

+1 on the Falco, though a new Tuono would make a great addition

Yes, I made a bike rack for the Falco.

Here's a advrider thread about bike on bike racks. Mine are in there somewhere.

Falco with panniers, top box, snowshoes...

Heres my offering, 2010 Ducati Streetfighter that I bought new in June of '11. I have a Hepco&Becker sportrack with a pelican on the back. I have plans to make a rack for more cases on the side later. Also, I have some Triumph bars on that are flatter and wider and some sliders.

I just purchased my first Ducati a few weeks ago. Here's a pic from Echo Lake, outside Idaho Springs, CO. Everything is stock in this picture, but that's already changing Next moves are getting her ready for long treks into the mountains.

I haven't posted anything for a while, so thought I'd share this one of my 1098 getting ready for a longish trip North:
