So Jay Leno is Italian? I didn't know that.

Great vid overall - thanks for posting Adrian

A couple of things he should know - MV Agusta did not build bikes since the 20's and the was no Count Agustini Apart from that he did pretty well.

Sadly, you can never capture the real sound on film (although they did do a pretty good job).

I love that 750 brochure - I managed to find a pristine one (I don't use the word pristine lightly) which my lovely wife got for as my early Christmas present

Funnily enough, when I was looking for mine, Arthur Bold (of racing & Bold Engineering fame) told me he knew of a deceased estate one but the wife had her heart set on selling to Jay Leno to add to his collection, she saw that as a fitiing tribute to her husband - I don't know whatever happened with that as I had no need to follow it up - I was luckily enough (Thank you again Dorian & Johan) to find exactly what I wanted in Verona.

Small world......................

LOL - Albert - Arthur & Agusta - Agustini - all the same? maybe it's a Italian thing with doggy memory genes

In my own defence, I did send that post from work (on a Tuesday ) now that IS a shock to my system I NEVER work Tuesdays.

On a happy note I did swap my Tuesday for a Friday and seeing as I don't work Thursdays either that gives me a 4 day weekend - man I love the Melbourne cup -lol.

Apologies to Albert, but as he never got me that America, I don't like him! I am, of course, just messing around on a 'work' Tuesday Albert (Arthur) is one of those guys that I would love to meet and have a drink with, he would would have some incredible stories to tell I am sure!

Great video

Alas, I understand English better when I read it that when I listen to, but for the sound of the exhaust, I do not need translation

Although as said MVista the sound on the video is less than reality ...

Indeed Xavier - the exhaust note is the universal language - my god with the baffles out, I think it is a language even the deaf could understand

Saw this posted on the UKside, Great video. Jay Leno is the man. A very cool, down to earth guy. I think it's fantastic to go as far as putting a wireless mic in his helmet so that he can explain and describe things as he is riding. Beautiful bike. And while there were a few mistakes in his history knowledge, he is definitely passionate about MV.

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.
