Cool Childhood Dream For-filled!

Hi, there fellow MV-Lovers.

Since the age of 15, I always wanted to own an MV Agusta, an F4 Senna to be exact! But living in South Africa I knew that closest I will get to one is the bedroom poster I had on my wall... Well, a few weeks ago, I was busy shopping for a new bike (Honda VFR1200) for the commute to work and back when as a lark I googled MV Agusta and a bike popped up on Gumtree... A black beauty, red core and drop dead sexy! 6000km on the clock and exactly the same price as the other boring option. It was a sign. Long story short I for-filled my childhood dream! It ain't an F4 Senna but it is a damn sexy close second.

2015 MV Agusta Rivale and she is mine!

Hope to be an active member and I have a feeling this is going to be a lifelong affair...

Hi Ruhan, and welcome.

You'll have much more enjoyment and pride from the Rivale than Honda's VFR!

For @anothermvfanatic , I think 'gumtree' is a world-wide sales platform, as we have cars on bikes on it in UK also. As a former 'Melbournite' I am more than familiar with the Eucalyptus and their numerous species. That got me to wondering if it was actually started by an Australian so I checked Wikipedia and found this interesting info:
