Is winter setting in Down Under, Russ ? Just kidding. As always a great overview made by You. +1 on Your personal opinions, I see this exactly like You do. Here You go guys christmas is merely 6 month to go. Time to make Your beloved ones aware of what daddy would like to read over the cold winter time.

There are two in Japanese that I've found. I will try to get some details up on them. They are the same book, two different editions....one before the modern fleet, one after. I have both. I can read neither. But yeah, lots of nice pics.

MV Agusta #9. Published 1997.




MV Agusta #13. Published 2007.
Other makes in this series include: Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Yamaha, BMW, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, and Triumph




Lots of pics & specs. #13 seems to include most of what #9 had.

I can probably source a couple #13 if anyone is interested. or others in that series. (JP makes are more than 1 book)

Yes, it is winter down here. Cold, wet and windy.

A good time to do some work on the bikes, just need a garage/workshop other than the lounge room floor.

Didn't know about #13. thanks for the info.
