Thumbs up (EmVee) MVAGUSTA.NET = The BEST PEOPLE

I never am ceased to be amazed by the incredible people on this site.

I few weeks ago a received a phone call from EmVee (Darren) whom I didn't know at all apart from a few message exchanges in various threads.

So out of the blue I get call from him (he had got my number from my spray painter) and he tells me he was over in the USA at Monterey, he got one of the Mecum posters along with a catalogue from the Gary Kohn collection & he thought it would be something (from reading my posts) I'd appreciate & he left them with painter guy!

I was speechless, anyhow I thanked him and we chatted for a while, needless to say he is a fantastic bloke - he is looking to buy a modern MV & I think he'd make a wonderful owner whom would really add to the MV family.

Anyhow, I took the poster directly to my framers who block mounted it and sealed to protect it as it is now housed in the "MV Shrine" and sometimes engines are running in there I got it back today

Big thanks to EmVee I am truly humbled to receive a gift completely unsolicited and out of the blue, I also glad and very happy that my passion for this wonderful marque is appreciated by others.

What I love most about my shrine (apart from the bikes) is that when I go in there, I see so many reminders of the wonderful people involved with MVs, for instance the Cog wheel logo above the poster was sent to me by Noel_theknurl and there's many other as well. A big thank you to all

Cheers
Rob

yep, Rob's thoughts about the mvagusta.net members is pretty true.

On a slightly different topic, does anyone know where I can get the poster and the catalogue?

cheers

Rob, that poster is awesome!


I agree, the folks here at MVAgusta.net are a cut above the people on other motorcycle forums from my experience.

Yes, on my wall & in my study! Sorry Russ, I couldn't resist, I do hope you'll forgive me.

In all seriousness, try emailing Mecum direct the deatils are on the back of the brochure that I photographed.

So WELCOME back when did you get back from your epic adventure? I hope all was brilliant as anticipated! We need pics, stories the lot! I can't wait to catch up over a coffee and hear all about it. We might be down late December and definitely are coming to PI for the classic bike meet in January.

Cheers
Rob

A good friend of mine sent me the catalog.....and then admitted he got distracted and forgot to get the poster.....

Wish he hadn't, but I am deeply grateful that the thought of me when he grabbed the catalog and mailed it....at least i have that.

Nice job on the framing of the poster....awesome bit of art.

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

Yes Ed, they did a great job, I always use the same the framers right here in my hometown, a Ma & Pa operation been around 40 years, they've done all our art works and continually come up with the perfect solutions. I had no idea what I wanted when I went in, the asked what it was for, where it was going etc etc and came up with block mounting it & sealing it - it looks even better in real life.

People just do the nicest things & the good always far outweighs the bad or at least it has in my life so far I am pleased to say.
