Altoon in the house!

I check-in here every now and then and look at what's going on. It looks like there are a few people from the "old" guard still active. And it's great to see that new people are finding their way to...

wow! what a finish. and when you consider that chaz davies (luca's teammate on the other park-n-go r6) went out with a blown rear tire, along with 2 other riders, it's more incredible.

No MV at Long Beach Cycleworld Show?

I didn't see MV on the exhibitors list. Anyone know if there will be a bike there or not? I'd like to see the new F4 and Brutale up close.
