Another bike I can't afford, oh well.

Would be a blast to catch a ride with Colin on a track, just to see how really pathetic my skill are compared to his. The humiliation would almost be worth the price.

That would be a pretty cool deal. I think the Mille R is the funnest bike i've ever ridden, how cool would it be to have Edwards tow you around for a couple laps.

But would you be willing to throw your brand new $20,000 bike around the track, trying to catch the WSB champ?

If I can afford a 20K bike I can afford the repair bills

And can't you just see the press release.... "WSB Champ out for rest of season due to multibike crash at recreational track-day event. The champ was quoted as saying 'I was on a cooldwon lap and this guy just ran up on the inside of me, and bailed. I'm hoping that the fractued spine heals soon'. Aprillia had no comment at this time".



Or maybe I'm too cynical

OR see the headline, "WSB champ Colin Edwards gets thoroughly spanked by an unknown Aprilia owner at a special Customer Only event." At least that is what it would say if I were there....Yeah I wish

Ya know, in my fantasy, he is so humbled by my greatness that he gives me his factory bike and talks Aprilia into signing me for the remainder of his contract. And then I wake up



Do you think he would at least congratulate me for not falling off when he blew past me so fast on the brakes that the decals were sucked off the side of the bike when he passed me?

A: I know Edwards'd say "Who let this joker in? I didn't know these bikes could be ridden so slow!" or something to that effect.

B: Even just a little help in how to ride the thing better, and from Edwards would be great!
