Done it......brought 2 MV's

Yay, I'm now the owner of 2 MV Agusta's
Yesterday collected my 2004 Brutale 750s.... 550 miles from new and of course in mint showroom condition Rode home only about 150 miles on a selection of motorways and twisties. What a brilliant entertaining bike. More impressions to follow when I can stop at the PC long enough.

Today I collected my 2004 F4 750sr, again only just ridden home from Silverstone (where the very nice dealer is located, thanks to all at Forza Italia) so only about 60 miles. Very different, from my previous Honda VT1000 SP2, I can see this relationship will become firm Dont think there are too many SR's in the UK, anyone here?

Hope the rain holds off for a few hours over the next few days so I can explore capabilities further. Anyway, I know you all know what these look like, but here you go anyway (just indulge me for a bit) oh and sorry for the size of the pics.

More to follow.......

Thanks for the thoughts, I'm very happy with the bikes, both for the price of a new Fireblade!

Cant wait for some decent weather to get out and enjoy. Any of the UK based owners meet up for ride outs and chat?

Congrats on your new toys! They look stunning. I am in Surrey, near Guildford which is a little distance from you I know but if you're ever over this way, let me know and we'll meet up for a ride-out. I own a 2007 F4 1000R and love it. Just got back from a 1400 mile tour of Spain and France taking in the Pyrenees Mountains and the Millau Bridge to name but two of the incredible sights we visited. The bike never missed a beat and did itself proud.
Welcome to the gang and hope to see you soon.
