Hi... New here and new to Aprilia...

So... I have been messing around on my 955 Sprint for 10 years, and I've put 65k miles on it. It needs a gentler life now, so when a mate offered his Falco for reasonable money, I snapped his hand off.

I'd post pics but I haven't worked out how to put up thumbnails...

It has the same power and torque as my Sprint, but the delivery is so much more brutal and my Sprint has never seemed inclined to lift its front wheel off the ground. Instead of heaving my Sprint around corners, this Falco just wants to change direction, it's taking some getting used to!

It has some idiosyncrasies which I'll research before asking newbie questions.

Liking it so far though!   :)

I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

Welcome in

Love the Falco. Hugely underrated bike oddly when it is in fact an absolute gem. So much you can do to it and improve. Some very well specced ones about and some very knowledgable owners to be found here

Thanks for the welcome   :)

I have questions, but I'll do some digging first.

Still no idea as to the best way of posting pics here, so here are some links to flickr, hope they work.

Posting pictures for many is a dark art.

I have managed it but would struggle to describe how. Your links did indeed work and she is a beaut 🤘🏻
