"The R1 is more useable, its refined; maybe the Aprillia will be better on the track" "The R1 is more comfortable, much smoother engine, much smoother through the gears... and it's got so much more (midrange) grunt"

Boy have the roles reversed! Those were words used opposite against the R1 in the past. Wonder if that $4K price difference in mods would allow the R1 to destroy the Aprillia outright? I would think so, but you are saying the Aprillia's are dominating the racing series. How about local racing where they dont have the big factory $$$ involved?

Sticks_n_Stones, on the race track shootouts in Europe the Aprilia has been on top by FAR.

But yeah, add 4K worth of goodies to get the R1 suspension right and the table may be turned

i love mines no complaints. she performs well even up top. I recently kicked her into A mode and she turned into a real bitch. I took her down to maryland for a 5 hour ride. She isn't crazy comfy but I got use to it. Didn't bother me on the way back. Great street bike as it has power in various rpm's that is definitely usable. My R1 currently has 900 miles on the clock. I haven't really redlined her yet but I got her up there in the rev range. Im impressed overall..... there are minor things that i dislike about it... but all in all i like.

MCN did a great job with that video, but the Aprilia is slaughtering everything on the race track. like masszx14 said put $4k into the R1 to match the money and it'll eat that Aprilia on the road race course all day

Hans, thanks for admitting you took this thread over. Thread has been cleaned up, topic is new Aprilia vs new R1.

Lets keep the topic. If you want to post your non R1 related pics, gay parade pics and comments, please feel free to do so in a new thread, not jack this one.

Thanks

Mr. Steve,

I do not appreciate you taking my photograph away. This is a free country and not Iran. You have over stepped your boundaries and I won't stand for it. I like bikes just like you and I add value to this thread. You don't have to be straight to appreciate an R-1. Please put up my picture again or I will be forced to call Mr. Fish who may ban you from this site. I will also write a very derogatory article about you in Gay Biker if you don't reconsider. I may even demote the R-1 from the manliest bike award in my magazine. The choice is yours Mr. Steve. And may I remind you that I am in the Smack House posting my delicious pictures and not in the R-1 Zone. I believe you yourself said if "you can't take it-- get out of the Smack House"... or something like that.

Hans

Call Fish. Those scooter pics and such were totally off topic. I was not deleting out of ill-will towards you. Start a new thread, as you said this is not Iran and you're free to do so.

It was rude of you to hijack mine, personally I wouldn't care but Drew and them were posting in the "R1 forum" to the thread and it was productive.

Thanks

Since when did Fish ever delete posts.... never is when
When it became about people and very personal, about marriages, b4 and after breaking up, insinuations accusations and slander, he still refused to edit them..

and here you are over a bike...

You are censoring us

I think your scared of yourself around homo's... I thought it was all funny myself.

Hans, really is a hoot, flamming and scaring you guys, making you question your sexuality.
Thats the real reason guys are so freaked out by qeers.

I find it all quite amusing myself....LOL
