Graves slip-on for 2016 Aprilia Tuono 1100 Factory

The slip on exhaust came in for the Tuono. I'm still at work, but I'll post pics and video once I've installed it.

It's so purdy.

Headed to Cincinnati!

We dropped barges in Paducah, KY. Then headed North towards Cincinnati with 1100 ft. of loads.


Nice sunset.


Headed North with 1100ft.

Louisville N/B at night. Kinda sketchy.


Twisty too. 

And a time lapse of going up in Markland Lock Mile 531.5 Ohio River.

2016 Aprilia Tuono 1100 Factory. Taking her home.

In my earlier post, I commented that I bought a 2016 Aprilia Tuono Factory 1100. Well, here she is.


Shout out to Matthews Fun Machines in Charlotte for hooking me up with this sweet bike. They were great to deal with. This was right after we loaded up and were heading home.


Headed home!

In my driveway. I still can't believe it. 

First order was to take it down my local roads and give it a test run. Really couldn't tell how great the bike was going to be because it was the first day.


Somewhere on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

A few days later, I decided it was time for a Deal's Gap run. After a few laps, I headed home. I can't even believe how great the bike handled. The proof is in the tires!


After a few laps at the Tail of the Dragon.
More to come...

It's been a while. Updates!

Sorry it's been a while since an update, but I'm going to start working on being more consistent with posting.  

A lot has happened since my last blog post.
