No longer an MV owner

I wanted to say bye to everyone here since you all seem to be friendly and helpful. I wish you guys all the best with your respective MVs.

Such a great bike, I'm sad that it ended up this way but, I don't really want to drag you guys down so feel free to message me if you have questions about my experience.

Final milage average: 43.6 mpg (US)
Best: 226 miles / 5 gal. fill up
Amusing: 225 miles /5.1 -> out of gas
Total miles: 6646

Enjoy your new ride, quite a machine by all accounts. I wish you many happy miles together.

Being kind; beauty is in the eye of the beholder is all I can say when looking at it. A subjective observation, YMMV

You and me both, @Bumpkin. lol

Not my favorite looking bike by a long stretch but, I've owned a couple of Multistradas and am not ready for a BMW (XR or otherwise - not that they're pretty either).

After the TVL, pretty much any "adventure styled" (or other) sport tourer will be ugly. ;-)

Function over form with those machines. Good luck with the KTM, they're definitely a capable machine

Steve, try to message you to get the lowdown on what it was that made you give up on the MV. It's says you're not accepting messages. Is that right or is the problem at my end?
