No MV's on the front page ??? WTF ?

I'm not sure what it is, but it's not an MV, and rider is wearing a Ducati jacket....I've always liked the concept of rotating the images, but you'd think the admin could at least pick MV' s ????

Pete- Strangely enough, and although it is a huge honor, I agree with you. Perhaps the fact that that pile of junk will rip any MV a fresh asshole might have been a factor though. Heh heh heh.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

considering Lee built it, I have to believe there's an odd bolt or screw or fastener or something in it that's MV.

Actually uses an F4 throttle from bar to carbs. That fast idle lever is great.

:-) Most things will rip an MV
...not in the bubba/mvagusta.net inner sanctum these days, I miss half the shit going on here lately.
I've read about your illness....no words at all. I too have dealt with the dreaded "C" word and made it...fight like a mongrel, stay up.

All I can say is sorry............and ride brother.
