Red face Test Drive F4?

First off, what a great site, Iím a new member here, and from what I read this is an awesome community. Iím 23 year old USAF guy, FLY HIGH, and Iíve been riding for awhile. I started when I was about 14 or so, started on my dadís Gold Wing. Plus I rode a few friends GXRS and so on, til I was old enough to buy my own, a Suzuki SV1000s. The only reason I bought it is because with full fairings it looks like no ordinary sport bike, plus with dual microns it sounds wicked.
I accidently walked behind a F4 (while window shopping at a dealership) 04-05yr I think . . . . . . . right as it started up, scared the crap out of me. From that moment on I slowly started to fall in love with MVís. I said all that for this, now Iím about to buy my own 2010 F4, is there anything special I need to look for when I go test drive it (other than what you would look for with a normal sport bike)?

Until ICE falls from the HEVENS . . . . . . . . . WE RIDE! ! ! !

Yes,
#1: Look for a nice long twistie road
#2: Look for Police Officers
#3: Look for Dogs, Deer, and Dumb-Asses who will pull-out right in front of you
#4: Look for Motorcycle insurance (I got Gieco)
#5: Look for a Nice Place to Park Her in your Garage!
(when you test drive it, you'll have to get one)

Test drive=Buy the bike. The MV F4 is worse than crack cocaine....

Forget your preconceptions and open your mind.
Be like water my friend.

Not like any other bike. Enjoy, and tell us, how was it for you?

My suggestion would be to shop around check ebay, craigslist, dealerships(everywhere in the US) and definitly on the For Sale here on the site. i just got mine about a month ago, (05 1000S 1+1 with 749 miles on it) for 10K and i sort of feel i got screwed(somebody please make me feel better). recently i checked the For sale section on here and saw the Mamba edition was sold for less the 13K(i think it sold) i will have to say i bought it without even hearing it on. it was love at first sight! i had a hayabusa before it was fun but my F4(Ana is her name) is my one true love. btw welcome to the site. Show pics when you buy it!

Kreativ, thats a good suggestion but,I think he wants a Y10,
And I've seen a couple of those for sale used too, but too close to
MSRP, so he might as well get one off the Dealers Floor, and maybe
Haggle a bit on the Price.$?$?$?
