There's one in Perth too, that's why I asked. I'll be doing the ride on a TV and something else.

Sounds like Mototecnic in Knox must be running a demo day as well?

Thumbs up

Test rode some new MV's.

The TV is absolutely amazing, every bit as good as the testers make it out to be. I was extremely impressed by the gearbox and electronics, and engine power is more than enough for this kind of bike, pulling power wheelies without any effort.
The dash is a bit busy but easy enough to read and sure I'll get used to it quickly if I ever had to buy one.

I was very impressed by the grunt from the tripple, it made short work of Liesl and myself. And really starting to wish that my bike had the fly by wire throttle.

The only negatives Inheard all day came from the guys who rode the F4, not liking the throttle or quickshifter. The F3 800 and B3 800 was a big hit and the Dragster too.

Yes the lead ridder from the dealer running the show liked the F3 800 over the F4
