Lovely bike, but parts can be a bear to get. I hear it is getting better now that Piaggio owns Aprilia. Apparently, they are warehousing parts in the US somewhere, and that is helping with parts availability and accessibility.
I am liking the look of the Shiver GT, and the Dorsoduro... a lot. However, the V is just so damn good at so many things, it is proving very difficult to find a better all round bike. I have yet to find one.
