My first attempt at "Sport Touring", Good Bad and Ugly

For the 4th I usually go and see my family down in SoCal, this year I went by myself so I decided to take the Ape with me. Things were good, things got bad, and things got ugly. There are 18 pic's, so bare with me...

First off, I didn't take any pic's on the way down but I did find a nice length of road to stretch out a bit... Okay, so I'm a squid :instance

As you can tell, I was having waaay too much fun. That's when tragedy struck! 101 N through Ventura my bike started to shake violently and had a dramatic loss of power at about 70mph in the fast lane, so I had to pull over

I looked at the oil, it was showing low I called the dealer for advice and they thought that I may had thrown a piston

Figured it was best to take it to some moto-friendly place. No Aprilia dealers within 100 miles, but my wife found a place that said that they would take a look at it. to RPM cycles in Ventura! They didn't get me on the road, but they did let me hang out till they closed and gave great company and advise...
