A friend and I planned to ride the Sprint and Falco to
Hoosier Pass for some snowshoeing. Unfortunately, he
had to get home early so we skipped the snowshoeing.

I rode the Falco with panniers, top box, and snowshoes since
the bike was already loaded. .... Tom

Beautiful mountains and bikes! I need to ride more of Colorado. Simply stunning. Any thoughts of a bike-to-bike comparo? I rode a Falco once but didn't like the dry clutch.

Please ship me a small portion of your good Karma because you are living very well!

Oh the joys of being retired with a "snow blower" that also works. ;)

I've recently retired as well, but I'm not that lucky...off to work I go.

My Falco has a wet clutch. I slightly prefer the Aprilia over the Sprint, but it's likely
more subjective than objective :) I consider myself very lucky to own them both.... Tom

Tom,

I'm confused. Did Aprilia make Falcos w/ dry clutches? I assumed the Falco I rode had a dry clutch because it rattled like death's saber itself. Maybe different years had different setups? I do remember the ergos on the Falco were very comfy. I've never ridden a Sprint so cannot make the comparo. Nice bikes!

I think that all Falco's have a wet clutch, at least those sold in the US. Mine's an 02. Tom​
