Hi all, New here from the UK

Hi to everybody and thank you for letting me join you all on the forum


Basically I'm a classic motorcycle restorer and have been for the last 22 years. My ride was the Ducati 749 for a couple of years but I've always wanted the F4 1000 MV.


As chance has it the company I work for had one in on a p/x deal. 2004 F4 1000s 1+1 with 12000 miles on it, very clean almost mint and very well looked after, had to have it .


So here I am a member on here
esq'z me, nigelrb, falcn and 1 others like this.

Welcome to the madhouse Jimmy, plenty of advice on here. I'm just over the Welsh border to you.

Nice ride but it has a cylinder extra for some reason, best get the hacksaw out and loose one...

Ride safe.

Ive found Moto Corsa to be the main genuine dealer for parts in the UK is that correct?

I'm new to the MV family / brand too (June I bought mine), loving every minute so far and it's exclusivity. So you've gone from being a cylinder missing to one too many....🤣🤣🤣

New to the MV brand too but I sure am loving the extra two pots, to me just the most exotic bike design so far, you sure get noticed on them not that that's a good thing
