Just introducing Myself. New to the Board

Hey folks.
I just got back from Italy on a 20th anniversary trip with my wife. Saw MANY beautiful Italian bikes, but the MV Agusta's were my favorite. I had never seen the classics in person before (much less being ridden around).

So I've come home and sold my Moto Guzzi. I'm going to hunt down a simple MV from the 1950's or so.

Going to learn as much about them as I can, and what's available for the entry level owner. ; )

Seen several 175's out there. Very nice, but hoping their are some twins to be had too.

Feel free to educate me! Looking forward to chatting.
Murphy

Great first post.
Welcome to the forum.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Welcome! I am sure the collective on this forum can help you id person(s) that is or the person(s) who will be selling an early MV model. It would help if you posted a WTB in the sales thread with specifics. Good luck!

Ride fast and furious but live to ride another day!

I am just up the road from you in Spartanburg. Let me know if you ever want to get together to ride. Could also meet up at a bike night in Greenville.

The first one presented himself

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Welcome to the family.....not so many classic MVs in this country as Europe. There's a fellow in California that has periodically listed some of his on eBay.....keep an eye out.

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