Italian skill with the box was not enough to exact any respect the neolithic types who handled the during its trip from Italy to Northern England, and it at the Manchester base of importers UK with the extensive (and bodywork bashed to bits. it was no problem, except that the spare plastic was in last colours.

So it was that we didn’t get a new bike to test at all: year’s bike, last paint and a nagging suspicion we were being fobbed off a machine that, although to be no longer up to scratch for the rest of was an easy option for the UK market to the hassle of homologating the new model. Add to a gremlin … on the starter and a broken connection in the wiring as a result of the frequent removal of the and it would have been to write the Tuareg off as another of Latin flair for design let by poor quality control.

That would not really been fair — a can’t choose who handles it in and I am sure that the problems we had the electrics all had their root in the damage to the bodywork. Besides, it is to forgive almost anything to have that beautiful Rotax burbling and clattering underneath you.

A very way underneath you as well. I am not over-endowed in the leg although when standing up are more or less the right (they reach the ground and have to bend at the knee to me down to the right height). On the I can only reach the floor by almost all the way off the seat, which I a little annoying — you need a huge seat to have good ground

Still, even that has its side, since once you have a fine view of the I doubt, though, whether the real reason for the elevated I believe that it’s so you a good platform from to descend at speed on the kick-start, you be foolish enough to allow the to go flat.

I liked the bike we first got it. After all, it was the sludgy end of winter, and hardly the for a sports bike, so it didn’t matter that it would do just over the ton, sat on suspension and had too many green lights. It was comfortable, even up to level (I tried this), and enough to be fun whilst not so fast as to all hopes of licence retention.

It around sixty to the gallon and was happy to point its front at the sky with the minimum of effort.

Then two things happened to me change my mind: firstly I was enough to attempt a spot of riding, and secondly the roads out. I never seriously the Tuareg to be any good on the dirt, but I it would be fun to have a go. It wasn’t. A of high seat, short and top-heavy weight distribution for several uncomfortable moments I couldn’t reach the ground enough to avoid disaster.

The of any dirt ability was not really a black l mark on the Aprilia’s j but its off-road pretensions i dictate a and tyre i choice that has no ; beyond pure pose-value, and it really needs is more orientated geometry, a smaller, front wheel and some tyres. In short, it needs to be the that the UK isn’t going to

On the road, the narrow twenty-one front tyre felt and too inclined to wash out if it was turned in Shifting body weight helped, but the tyre didn’t to give any feeling of what it was up to a distant squirming sensation.

my new-found dislike of the Tuareg’s characteristics, I was less than when it was the only bike to recce Cadwell prior to the NWS GSX-R750 (p.52) for its track My misgivings weren’t helped by Kenny P. chortling away to about where he could get the crash shots, and the fact the marshal at the club circuit clearly couldn’t decide to laugh or whether to cross and take cover. I made a effort to improve the steering by the yokes over an inch on the and went out hoping it would down so I could go home.

Sixty laps later changed my mind again, a not unconnected with the fact I had learnt more or less way the circuit went, For sale, one Tuareg, suit pole or retired mountaineer. Strangulated forces sale. turned the of the tyres blue, scraped the through Charlies and overtaken a through the Gooseneck.

I had also the new-for-’91 twin disc brake with repeated abuse at the hairpin, and the clutch was a soggy from the heat, but the still ticked over happily in between sessions and almost pull the ton on the back It would have continued to do so, had the sight of an MZ racer sliding Mansfield not served as a timely that it is better to pack up tiredness and bravado lead you to it all away rather than afterwards.It seems that my attempts to modify the steering actually worked, as there no problems with the front out, even entering faster than I would liked due to the rapidly disappearing brake. The only disadvantages are a reduced inclination to wheelie and a that already holds the too near the vertical.

Despite my love/hate relationship the Aprilia, I’m not keen to it back. If I could keep it, change the front wheel, the brakes, fit some sticky and enter a few singles races. lose, but it wouldn’t half be and that is what this is all about
