The one that got away!

We,re talking about bikes and not women here....

I had a MV F4-750s in Red/Silver 2002 model 6 years ago and always regretted selling it. Spent a small fortune making it as unique and stunning as possible with the following mods:

1. RG3's
2. Carbon fairings painted to the standard colours
3. Magnesium Wheels
4. Power commander
5. EVR Chip
6. Quick shifter
7. HID's

Still remember how she use to ride today, the weight reduction made the handling just perfect. Even today with the 1000R i have with loads of mods i still feel that the smaller 750 i had handled better.

Anyone else remember the one that got away from their previous bikes

AL

Regards

Cool

I also bought a 750 F4 six years ago, but I have no regrets, cause I still got it!!

The only bike I regret selling was my 1992 Ducati 900 Superlight.....I still miss it.

If you're not living life on the edge - you're taking up too much space!

So accordign to your post, the carbon fiber bodywork is way lighter than the plastics on the bike? I mean the plastics are quite light already I just cant imagine a significant weight reduction being felt but then again what do I know

I bought a very nice '75 Honda CB400f which I loved. I saw an opportunity to pick up a couple of hundred profit and sold it a year later for $2500.

I'm trying to find a replacement.......................and the current prices are north of $5K.

!983 BMW R100RS. Bought it new after graduation from college. Sold it three years later. Still miss it. That is why I've kept every bike I've bought since then.

No i think you misunderstood, the combination of CF and Mag wheels make a huge diffrence.

Should never have sold my 1990 FZR400 Yamaha. What a sweet little bike that was.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.
