LOL - Well it was such a nice fit @Irish.

Interesting ergonomics in case anyone is interested - I'm 5'9" (stocky build). It feels more like an aggressive 2018 800. You are pushed closer to the tank and the seat feels like it locks you in a little more. Not as roomy as Gen1/Gen2 B4's. Like the B3, you feel you sitting slightly higher on the bike and less 'in' the bike. The thing that struck me the most was the lack of the cone/dash in front of you, you feel far more open and exposed...BRUTALE !

Cheers

I know there are many:

Ed, Randy, Chuck, JDS, Erik, Joe,, Noel, Donsy to name just a few, but I recall a lot of guys who were posting back then (2005/6/7) who I don't see here now. We all know that sadly there are a few who have passed away. Lee whom this section of the forum is named after for one, Ian (macmivvi) too, but what about some of the others? Possibly like me, they no longer own an MV.

I've listed a few names I remember, I hope they are well and perhaps they do look in here from time to time as I do but not as often as in the past.


Rockethouse
Kamranmarashi
Reopropf
Tokyolunch
tont
Pigiolino
agusta01
dova80
There are many more, Tiago (MV-999R) I think is still posting from time to time.


If you are an old hand check in and let us know how you are.
nice post John,
adding to that list;
.
Stephen Wood
Mikef4uk
Nice n Sleazy
.
a lot of UK members have left this forum which is a shame, even Alvin only pops his head in now and again,
.
I read a lot, of threads complaining of "new members" then look at the date these guys complaining joined, some of them long term guys were actually "newbies" themselves once
.
I remember the original mvagustaf4.com forum and when that forum went down, Alvin came up with this one
some take 4 or 5 years away from biking, whether due to family, injury, business or what ever but they always have that itch to return.
just a shame when they do return they are considered "Newbies", I myself am happy to be a newbie, as long as YOUNG in front of it, as its been a long time since someone called me young.

The problem is still happening to date and I had to go through the malarkey of having to request a new password to post on John's thread.

I don't mind doing it a few times, as there's a good bunch of blokes on here and some threads are informative, but after having to request a new password to log onto the forum a million times, I think to myself... Bol**ks

Anyway, enough bitching.

I miss the old crew and political sparring we used to have and I suppose you can't stop change.. I blame social media for making the World an over sensitive bunch of snow flakes.

Just want to wish the Old & The New Clan a Happy Christmas and a peaceful 2019.

Take care everyone and hugs & kisses to you all.

Which means that you are one of the older members that can't find your login or password either?

And calling you young would be an exageration on itself. And no I did not use the search to find that out. There is more than search on this forum. You can actually look on someone profile

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.

Mike (f4uk) is a regular on the 'Priller AF1 forum, he went over to the dark side several years ago and has a nice little 'collection' including a Tuono V4 Factory, a Yamaha R1M and he recently acquired a Kawasaki H2 triple.

I thought Stephen did drop in here from time to time (a bit like me) but perhaps I've got that wrong?

I'm a newbie I guess with being here 7 years.

My account got wiped due to inactivity. I'm back in love with riding the MV mainly because I don't have to ride an hour an a half each way to ride her.
