Well I'm a couple of mods into my Aprilia Shiver ownership, so I figured I'd share how things stand at the moment. My first mods were to chop the Shiver's ridiculous (and completely useless) tail off, and to add my Rizoma Class Retro mirrors. The greatly improved the bikes lines I thought, and I left things there for a while. I've ordered some more exciting bits (including an Arrow exhaust), but whilst the unending wait for them continues, I decided to add some more immediate bling - in today's case, some reflective gold rim tape for the wheels, and a gold radiator guard. Installation for both is pretty straightforward, though the tape is very tough to get perfect because it stretches and is tricky to line up correctly right the way around the rim. As a result mine has some minor imperfections, but to the casual glance it's fine. The rad guard is quite a different gold colour to the frame and the rim tape, but still looks pretty spiffy I think. That said, these will be the last gold-coloured accents I'll add to the bike. The gold frame is the centrepiece of the Shiver, and I think too much bling (especially golden bling) quickly starts to detract from the bike and makes it look too 'busy'. As it stands, I'm really quite happy with the result. I think the two mods compliment the Shiver's looks nicely, they make it look a little flashier, but not by too much. The bike as it was originally: With tail-chop, Rizoma mirrors, gold wheel stripes and radiator guard: What do you think fellas?
