  1. Hi guys couple of years back I advertised my friends millie on here and to be honest I couldn't stop looking at it. I've always fancied one ever since I passed my test. So with uming and ahhing for the last 2 years and annoying @Expat Jack and @bradders with countless txt messages over buying it I finally bought it off my mate. It's great I love it. Though not very quick compared to my r1 or pani R it's still good fun. It's no garage queen but I kinda like it like that. Here's the pics.

  4. I chopped in my ZX6R and bought one brand new in 2001. It was slightly more comfortable than my 749S!
     
  5. I find it real comfy as the suspension is quite soft on it. Think it could do with new tyres though.
     
  6. Glad it went to a good home...
    Always had a soft spot for Aprilia's, I think you get a lot of bike for your money.
    If I had space for a 3rd bike I'd fill it with another Aprilia

  11. Glad it stayed local, was really seriously tempted by this but ended up pooling my money to get the thrust on r as ultimately I already have a sportsbike

  16. Great bikes, like it in the yellow aswell. I'm keeping my eye out for a 2003 bike which was the last of the mille and came with the radial calipers but don't come up for sale often.

    I have a 2003 model, although not an R.
    It's now at 87k kilometres (54k miles). There are a lot of possible measures to spice things up a bit on the cheap. The original chip contains two ignition mappings, one for the standard exhaust/ air filter and one for "sport" exhausts and air filters with more flow. This is one of the best mods, as it removes the dent in the torque curve between 4 and 5 k revolutions.
