Have you ever heard this from someone

I took the bike out to a rally this weekend, and couldn't believe all the people saying stuff like, "Those bikes really do exist. I've only seen them in magazines". I was surprised to hear that from so many people....


OK Yeah it was a great feeling!!!

Yes, something like it. Usually just "I've never seen one before."

I use to get "what is that...?" all the time. Even from Ducati and Aprilia owners.

In 2001, I had someone on a Yamaha chase me down and stop me in the middle of the street and asked if we could talk about the bike -not in the middle of the street and I had to go. But before we parted ways, he touched the mirror housing as if he was touching Jesus Christ himself! It was a strange.

All the time - people usually say theyve never seen one or only pictures of. Kind of neat I guess... sometimes kind of annoying.

I find that when I park up other bikes seem to ignore me, but some members of the public are totally blown away. Much more so than with other bikes I have had

When my Dad and I first laid our eyes on an MV Agusta at the UK launch, we were simply blown away.................

As my bike is parked out the front of my work on a busy highway down here in Tassie I frequently get people pull in in cars/bikes to inspect and/or take photos etc. Most drooling but the occasional bloke on his litre japanese machine will pull in ask whose bike it is and then almost look at me in disguist...I put it down to jealousy as i'm pretty young and god forgive i have a F41000. One bloke argued with me in the pub for about 20 minutes telling me that my F41000 was in fact a Moto Guzzi V Twin with a Suzuki TL1000 motor in it.
