Hey Nickey, one door closes another opens! welcome to our crazy upright world !
Heated grips , ability to see over cars and hedge rows and easier to see the plod
and low front tyre wear !
Just don't buy a pipe or slippers ( and i don't mean a lead or Akra one either)
Hey you can also buy some understated leathers too chief !
Look on the bright side ,you can hang out with Adam and me on our upright bikes as a special bonus !!!!

I used to be uncertain , but now i'm not sure anymore

Yeh, and naked bikes just calm your riding down so much it's unreal....

OK GUYS...

I have apologies to make to two people in the aprilia family, the guy who was gonna buy Isobella and another person, they know who they are......!!!

I have had a change of heart and I have decided to convert the bike into a Tuono, now I HATE mucking people around, especially very good friends but I've looked at all the options and weighed them up and at the end of the day I just couldn't bear to let her go, we've been through a lot, been to lots of places, had a few firsts on her, been caught by plod on her, she's won show n shine at AP and has a great history with another rider and friend on here (ole Ken) so just couldn't do it...

Converting her to a Tuono was the obvious choice right from the start but I just didn't wanna see her turn into something else but after considering it and thinking about it, it seems like the best thing to do...

I can only apologise to the guy who was gonna buy her and I owe him a massive favour and a hand job at least, that's if me wrists don't give up the ghost too soon lol......!!

I know the person who was gonna buy it from you will be disappointed but I am so happy to read that NB, you have put so much into her that you would only ever regret selling it.

As Hemi says, get a second upper fairing and trim that to suit, that way you can put it back if you decide you don't like it but at least you will have tried it and will know which might help silence the voices.

It's no bad thing converting it to a T.
The main thing is you know the bike's in tip top condition.
People say I don't know Jack Sh1t; but I do, he lives next door.
