My new Aprilia SXV...

Recommended Posts

...mirror. :lol:

The stock Husky mirrors are ugly as sin so I decided to go to my local Aprilia/Ducati dealer and order up a LH mirror off the new SXV. Much more stylish. The pictures aren't the best because I was shooting @ f/5.6, ISO 800. The only light in the warehouse was from some really high up windows and I didn't have a tripod with me.

That and I was in a hurry because while the door to the abandoned building was already open I'm sure I probably wasn't supposed to be in there. :applause:

The mirror was like ~35 bux plus tax just for the one side. A little expensive but I like the way it looks.

Good for him. There aren't enough gas stations where I ride to justify owning one of those.

Is the exaust can the stock one?

It seems shorter than the one on the husqvarna web site.

OK I think i get it now, it's the "exhaust mod".

Yeah I cut about 4 inches off the muffler. So far so good as for reliability. My only complaint is the hard ass seat.

Beautiful bike and very nice pictures! From your comments, I'll bet you can find fault in the shots, but I think that the location, the white balance and the nice even wash of light is just perfect. The magazine guys would have spent two hours putting up diffusers, kickers, gels and whatnot to get the depth of field and natural lighting of that setup.

Good on ya mate!

Nice bike, and shots you can be proud of!

Cheers,

P.S. I don't have any shots of my new DRZ SM and I've had TWO digital cameras die in one week!!!

Thanks man I appreciate it. I think the pictures turned out better than I had expected given the circumstances and lighting situation.
