Aprilia Other description

2001 Aprilia Scarabeo 150cc scooter. It only has 3500 mison it and runs like a top. 65 mis per gallon and will cruise at 70 mph !Large 16in wheels make the ride super comfortable, yet still quite nimble.150cc Rotax engine is bullet proof, these guys are famous for their aircraftengines. This particular 'Beo' is set up with the factory tallwind screenand hand guards which allows for several more months of riding. Youwill NOT find another set up like this, in fact, the Beos in general are seldomon the market as the owners never seem to tire of them. I am only selling as mysons are wanting to go on road trips on 'big bikes', so need to sell to buy alarger motorcycle. If you are unfamiliarwith these quality Italian scooters, you know they are the ultimate urbanerrand machine. If parking at your downtown job is tight.. you need a scooter.Aprilia is also the mother company to another well known brand. . . Vespa. Very new tires frontand back, new front brake pads (rear are fine) and new battery. 1 small stainon seat, that is hardly noticeable and few small scratches from kids bicyclesin the garage. Beo has been garage kept its entire life. 2 sets of keys andowners manual included. Clear, normal Oklahoma title.

Thu, 29 Mar 2012 00:00:00 -0700

The last time we assembled the superbike offerings from the Big Four Japanese manufacturers to determine the alpha male model was 2009. The CBR won that confrontation, but a lot’s changed since then. For 2012 Honda revamped the CBR1000RR, Yamaha added traction control to the R1, the GSX-R1000 lost a muffler and last year Kawasaki introduced an all-new ZX-10R.

Bahrain track days

Tue, 17 Dec 2013 00:00:00 -0800

A few months ago, expat (and ex racer) John Beddall made contact to ask if I fancied doing some track day instruction out in Bahrain.  After thinking about it for two seconds, flights were booked and a plan was put in place to look after around forty riders for a day at the Bahrain International Circuit (BIC).  Young Taylor Mac was also recruited to look after any tasty riders that I couldn’t deal with   The Brits out there love their bikes, however, quite a few locals also turned up plus a few others from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar.  Most were on high end Superbikes, like S1000s, Panigales and RSV4s but there was also a healthy number R6s and new 675Rs.   Although this fabulous Hermann Tilke designed circuit is around ten years old incredibly it has never hosted a bike race.  The highlight of the year there is F1 but being owned by the Bahrainian Royal family, there is no desperate need for the circuit to operate as a profitable business.  The track reminded me of Qatar but much more interesting as some great undulations have been built into its desert location. We shared the track with Supercars on the day (20mins on/20mins off) and as you might imagine it was betty swollocks for seven hours in the 30 plus temperatures.  As usual there was a few offs with poor old RS1000 Aprilia mounted Andy breaking his femur early in the day.  Two other buddies appeared to swap bikes mid air in another incident but fortunately escaped unhurt.In the evening everyone stayed for an al fresco dinner in the paddock with the craic going on for hours as the Fosters kept flowing.   All in all it was a brilliant trip and it has left me thinking there could be cost effective ways of getting Brits out there for track days next winter.  I'll keep you posted.Cape Town next to make my racing comeback at the Killarney 8 hour on a CBR150 Honda.  Hopefully I can manage the beast, I'll post a full report next week.
