did you know...

on the mv...



that the....




























speedo works in reverse!
i got it up to 5mph (8kmh for you metric folks). my driveway has a slight slope which give mes a little "push" when i roll down it in the mornings.

i thought it was funny that the speedo worked backwards. my r6 doesn't do that.

Yeah, it noticed that the first time I rolled it out of my garage...I didn't think anything of it, but you're right, my other bikes don't do that.

Don't tell everyone. One of these weirdo's with nothing better to do will be in the guiness book of records next for how fast they can go on a F4 in reverse!
