Please call Casey at OCEANSIDE APRILIA/DUCATI and order your quality Bitubo shock now. They are going to compile a least of at least 10 orders and then order the shocks. The price will be $599 for the basic one and $679 for the bells and whistle one shipped to your front door.

What you need to do now is call her (Casey, she's the GM there, nice girl) and put your order in. When they get 10 for either the Mille or Falco or both they will put the order in. This order could take 8 to 12 weeks for you to get as there are none in the US right now.

She said she will compile the list and then when its a go she will charge to your credit card. They are a repitable dealer in Oceanside California. I am on the list so lets go and get 9 more. Thanks

Dave Beggins

Hey people, this is my first time starting a post. I have a 00.5 black (the fastest color) falco and have just fitted a new bitubo shock, part number a0036FXT11. It is for the falco and is not on the website. I purchased it at Scuderia West in San Francisco Ca. For $699.00US I saw it up on the wall and was told "we just got that thing in dude.." [insert california accent] and impuslively bought it. It is a beautiful shock nicely made and lots of nice beefy aluminum parts with nice finishes and a red spring. I had it installed due to my lack of garage and tools and jacks. Here are the numbers: length adjustment 320.5mm, spring length 180mm, rebound set to 6 and compression set to 8, now dont quiz me on the settings as I dont know jack sh|t about the settings on shocks and forks...yet. As soon as I got on the bike I immediately noticed an increase in ride height and upon riding the bike there is a marked difference in the bumps in my crappy neighborhood that I ride over every day...they aint as bad as they used to be...I have taken the bike to my favorite twisty spot rte 35 to rte 84 (la honda) and rte 9 to Boulder creek..some of you California falco owners know what I am talking about...and I noticed a big difference in the fast curves with increased stability and smoothness. Which made for a great day of riding.
A very happy falconer am I.....
