next bike will not be an MV

After going through a lot of hurdles with the F4 312R, I love my bike, and will never sell it....but my second bike will be a Yamaha R1 ( I have had them ALL) or an Aprilia....

I am too dissapointed with the many flaws in MV engineering that have led my bike to sitting in the garage more lately then riding.

It is still THEE FERRARI bike, but I will not purchase another. The 312R has a special place in my heart, and will always be mine, but the next bike will be probably the RSVR Factory or a R1.

The constant heat problems I have had in Hawaii (and I did every mod possible to counter this...) and the now popping im getting from my chain (just tightened it to spec, yes exactly to spec) and I an sick of working on her. I might just park her in the living room, start watching movies with a cleaning cloth and toothbrush and make her a garage whore.

oh, the catalyst for this post was recently cracked radiator, from normal use, at 6k miles. This was after 3 weeks ago my hoses fell apart. Thats right, rad hoses, cracked and fell apart....
