Glad to hear of your good experience. I just received my Tutoro oiler for my Aprilia Futura and will install it this winter. I had a Scott oiler previously, which never worked very well!

Aprilia RST 1000 Futura...a great all round sport touring bike. Be prepared to do much of your own maintenance as dealers are rare. Fabulous forum at AF1 Racing. Best bike I've ever owned!

How do you think the crown of the road contributes to easier turning on one side or the other? Turning right the road is banked in your favor...not so much to the left.

I'm right handed and left eye dominant and turn to the right much better. On left turns I have to coach myself wait, wait, wait, okay turn in! Otherwise I'll apex too soon.

WTB, Bezel from broken Zumo 660

I lost the plastic bezel off my Zumo 660 when it fell off my bike at 50mph. The Zumo survived its crash, but the bezel was lost. Does anyone have one? Garmin will not send me a replacement!
