Then it was time to head back down the mountain to Franklin. There wasn't much traffic so I had a blast.
The Aprilia handles these curves really well. It has great steering that puts most sport bikes to shame on tight curves and unlike my Super 8, it seems to have good cornering clearance.
Then I picked up Debbi in Franklin and we headed out to ride some of the twistiest roads in the state and see how the Aprilia would handle them.
