F4 - Mother & Baby Doing Well - PICS

I am doing my bit to ensure the next generation of MV Agusta aficionado stays healthy by producing an MVista Jnr if you will - he is very passionate.

I am not sure that if the fact that he needs to a complete MV-phile is a condition of my will for him to collect his inheritance has any bearing of his decisions.

Regardless, this is a 15 yo boy with no spray painting experience or guidance except having a talent for maths & art - he spent his school holidays completing "Baby F4 Project". He took a plain pocket rocket & turned into a baby F4 (total cost around $45) - using nothing more than some spare decals in the garage & some spray cans - he undercoated - painted & clear coated.

I was/am amazed by the results - he wants a compressor for his birthday so that he can learn to paint 'properly' & I think given this example, he will be getting one

A very fine moment for this young man.











Now in a LESS fine moment - as a keen (and usually most responsible) downhill mountain bike racer - he decided to do some practice runs last friday wearing nothing but his 'skull cap' as opposed to his full faced helmet.

Of course, the inevitable happened & we spent last friday night in hospital whilst they completed x-rays & cat scans to ensure there were no breaks or brain damage - given he was found wandering the track - unable to recall his name, day of the week or year. Obviously a major concussion. Fortunately, he has been cleared of all serious damage. He still absolute no memory of the crash two days later!

Had he been wearing his full faced helmet it would have no big deal, maybe a headache & little more!!

A moment less Fine -

Doesn't know who he is but it's thumbs up in hospital!

Wow, that is a great effort! Impeccable!
Pity about the fall, hope there isn't any lasting damage, must've been scary for you.
But from the thumbs up sign it looks like he's a tough nut.

Ouch, that must have hurt. Glad he's doing fine now. Good thing is that he'll get lots of care and attention from the girls at school now!

That mini bike of his looks great. A+

Ah, yes.....life's little lessons. Glad he will recover (maybe bearing a few scars on the face for a while to keep reminding him of the lesson).
The mini-F4 really does look fantastic !!

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

That is some of best work I've seen. And by a 15 year old no less. That kid has got some talent, and he can come work with me anytime. Don't think I want to kiss him though with that nasty upper lip.
