Thumbs up Jay ... You are The Man !

Cheers for posting Alvin !

This is one of the best clips I've seen that captures the passion of owning an old MV..

Makes me want to buy a 750 America and reminds me how much I liked owning my Jota..

Was already posted here http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showth...600#post567600 last Monday by Adrian

I took mine out today after looking at that vid through the week - apart from the faux pas regarding MV Agusta's history and ownership, Jay is pretty spot on with the rest.

If someone had a gun to my head and made me part with all my bikes bar one - this is the one I'd keep. Riding it is a completely visceral experience.

Notable errors:

1.MV Augsta has made bikes since the 20's.

2. Reference to "Count Agustini"

3. Helicopter divison purcashing Bell Helicopters - whilst there was a licence agreement there was never a merging, in fact Agusta Helicopters merged with Westaland in 2000 or thereabouts or at least so the old guys in the motorcycle/helicopter museum at Sammarate told me in 2010 and I am NOT about to doubt them, right, wrong or somewhere in between
