Default oldie but goodie

1st post of the section!

best bike I ever had:



2001 aprilia RSV-R mille
1,000cc aprilia/Rotax V-twin
evol race airbox
evol chip
Mig carbon fiber shotguns
HID conversion (w/kill switch :shhh )
mid-sliders
factory Ohlins front/back
OZ lightweights front/back
all kinds of carbon fiber goodies here and there
stock screen, smoked double bubble (german import), irridescent double bubble (special import, still have it)
initial suspension setup by Gary J.
525 gold chain conversion
+2 in the back with the then new dual metal sprocket
there's more but I forget

oh yeah, I custom hardwired in a heated vest electronic controller, the knob was flushed in a side panel.
cleaned the tail up and added many LED running and turn signal strip lights

later on added gorgeous blue annodized rearsets too.
bike was stunning (too bad I wasn't so good LOL!)

the bike was an absolute beast to ride. tame if you wanted but let it run and it went apeshit on fun runs

zzzzz.

but here's a good deal alert off CL! least I think it's a good deal.

an '05 Kawi 250"R" for... $2,500? but that's a dang deal right?

especially if gas does hit $4/gal this summer. I think those two fiddys get 70mpg or something crazy like that.

I always loved these monsters. this one's only a 600 but you know, on an island and with the upcoming very heavy crackdown on speeders and lack of track facilities, there is literally nowhere to go haul ass with extra CC's anyways. I'm out of the game but summer's here, someone go get one of these
