Following on from my earlier post regarding Aprilia spares from Eurobike CT, it is appreciated if Dawgs in the know can perhaps direct me to excellent Aprilia mechanics as per subject.
I never had to use the services of the Cayenne workshop, as I had access to the skills of a brilliant young man, who are now unfortunately for me and a few others ( and fortunately for him ) dazzling bike owners in Canada with his exceptional skills.
I know Mile is very good with Italians, but he prefers to work on Ducs.
My ears are wide open  ;D

Ultimate Performance centurion. Not the cheapest, but if you think its expensive, let an amateur work on it!

Thanks, that shop worked on my bikes before, but more specifically the guy I referred to in my post.I am not looking for cheap work, but rather quality work 😉

Fire it up in Bryanston looks after my Tuono. Maybe they can help?

Thanks for that.I see they have opened a workshop at Kyalami, called Performance Technik.I suppose the mechanical work is now undertaken there.I read up on the shop and it seems it has been kitted out quite extensively with a roller and the works.Craig Langton, the shop owner, doesn't skimp with anything :thumleft: My issue is still the actual techies who work on the bikes.I suppose I will  have to give someone a go and see what comes out of it.

I second this. Louis and his team all ride Aprilias and he looks after my dad's V-Strom properly.

Louis is also a great guy.
