Tuono Time

So I went shopping for a used bike and got all excited about an MV Agusta Brutale. Beautiful bikes but upon my research I found they had some common issues that concerned me. Then I went shopping for a new Triumph and almost dropped the hammer on a new Speed Triple RS. But buying a new bike is hard and expensive. They want to make money off me those bastards.
So I gave up that idea and called an old friend who had recently split up with his wife and had offered his 2016 Tuono Factory to me for a fair no BS price. Hadn't seen him or his bike in quite a while but long and short I bought the bike.
Rode it up to BigBear Lake and back and have to say, once I get it dialed in it's going to be my newest favorite motorcycle.

I think an Angeles Crest/Forrest ride is in order. Want to take it out on the roads I know best first to get the suspension dialed in just right. Need to go through the bike first make sure it's all squared away.

Great bike. I have never had more fun than on a Brutale, but the Tuono is basically the Aprilia version. They are just insanely fun bikes to hoon around on. Great pick up!
