    New oldie

    Hi guys, many thanks for the welcome. I am 71yrs young
    and currently own a 2012 Speed Triple but have had many twins but not an aprilia.
    I have put my speedy up for sale as I have a desire to return to a vtwin.
    My choice is a Tuono Factory which I can’t wait to purchase.
    I will have up to £6500 towards my purchase. So any advice would be appreciated
    I live in East Ayrshire and having some difficulty finding a factory for sale, guess I will just have to be patient
    Regards to all lucas60

    yep yer right, decent factory,s are becoming harder to find these days, i searched for over 2 years to find the one i wanted, even ventured over to ducati for a while.. (bad decision).. eventually found a black dream final edition.

    Congrats! It's funny regarding the rear brake. Most everyone complains about it, but the one on my '08 Tuono seems good enough to me. But then, I ride like a little old lady (I'm "only" 65).
