From France, my first contact with an MV Agusta

Ignition, opening the two fuel shut-off valve, throttle slightly open, a good shot of left hock, and braouuuum brombrombrombrom, my 350 S Elettronica snorts, the front wheel swing, the revolution counter tremble on what needs be 1200/1300 rev / min.

Well it's not all... I pass the leg over the seat, a shot of kidney and the bike is on its two wheels. First gear up, and go in a thundering sound very nice. Everything vibrates, even my thoughts.

That's it, I've got one . Yesssss !!!

She joined a Laverda 1000 Jota and a Yamaha RD 350 in my garage

My new Elettronica is in good condition, but I'm always interrested by the technical conversations on our old bikes

As you certainly seen, Google translation helps my old memories of school and I beg your indulgence if I made ​​a syntax error or a linguistic gaffe

Regards

Xavier

Welcome on board. Beware the MV Agusta virus has infected You already and there is no real cure. BTW a picture would be mandatory in a post about an MV Agusta.

Bonjour Xavier.

Welcome to the forum and indeed the great world of Classic MV's.

If you ride the 350's hard you don't notice the vibration

Have fun.

Dorian

Xavier to post pictures is quite simple. I guess we should make a sticky how to do thread any when.
If You want to post pictures in an existing thread than click on "go advanced". Further down there You will find "manage attachments". There You click on, browse for Your photos and hit "upload". Once the photos are uploaded You submit the post.
If You want to create a new thread with photos You just have go to "manage attachments" and so on.
No excuse anymore, get Your camera and make some nice photos.

Very nice Xavier.

Interesting to see 'high' handlebars on a sport. It makes it look a different bike altogether.

Thanks for posting and have sent ypu a pm.

Dorian.
