Hi Everyone,
Having just added another Aprilia, I realised that I've lost track a bit of who has got what (or who has had what in the past).
To understand what we have at present and what accumulated Aprilia experience we have on the forum, I thought I'd start off a thread to find out.

So:
    * Tell us what Aprilias you have at present
    * Tell us how long you have owned them

    * Tell us what Aprilias you had in the past
    * Tell us how long you had them and when you got rid of them

    * If you want to, post a picture (of the bike - not just a random picture)

I'll kick off:

I have a Falco and a Futura.

I have had the Falco for just over 12 years (bought new in May 2005)

I have had the Futura for less than a month (bought used in July 2017)

I have had no previous Aprilias though I did have to keep my son's Aprilia Sonic scooter running for a few years ......

Here are my Aprilias:

I have no 'prilia's now, but I used to have F9's Falco, will have to hunt up a pic or 2 as they don't have a home on the interweb.

Dates?
Hmmm. Tricky.
I own the storm trooper which I have had seven years and was origionally mercury grey.
I have owned an oasis green. Only had it a couple years.
Bought a battered neglected blue falco and had it painted black and white. Also mechanical work done.
Had that for two years also.
Got a futura which has been painted. Had that four years ish.
I also own a mille r. I have had that about four years also......
I have a falco track bike. This I have had about three years.
Bought a black falco which has been painted red and white. Sold to Jean luc ride hard. This has mechanical jobs done at the same time.
A cat c write off falco which I have had for twenty months. But this will be repaired.
And finally I bought a red flame three months ago which is having bits done when I have time.

Wow Fewer than I thought - just me and Jay and Gio from past ownership.

Maybe it's because Jay has most of the world's stock of Aprilias and there are none left for anybody else?

01 mercury silver Falco
Ohlins rear unit, SL carbon cans, R and G bungs, fork slider bungs, good sprinkling of stainless fasteners, titanium axle nuts, dark std screen, gloss black rear hugger, silver shorty levers and very sexy Rizoma bar grips

It has nothing to do with storage space, its more to do with my laptop/windoze 10 will actually do anything when it boots up, it certainly has its 'possessed days, black screen, pointer arrow leaping around everywhere, opening/closing stuff at random, emails disappearing, freezing.....
Some days I just have to give up and switch off before I smash it to bits with an axe

Hi All
I have one Falco. 55 plate bought new in Nov 2005. Olympic bronze

I owned another Falco bought new in early 2005, Rosso red. It was stolen and never recovered

No other Prillas in my life..... but there's still time.
