Hi!

This is my first post on the site and I should mention that I hope to be an MV owner next year if all goes to plan. I've read a good number of the different threads and thought I should now venture to ask some deep and meaningful questions of you owners. I have a list of questions below and I would like you to answer them honestly. If you agree with the questions then add up how many you agree with and mark yourself out of six. As a prospective owner I hope you agree with 3 or less. Please take this all with a bit humour as I really have no intention of upsetting anyone and only pose the question as a bit of fun:naughty:. So how honest can you be?...is that another question?

To be an MV owner you need to:

1.Be filthy rich.

2.Ride less than 1000 miles (1600kms) annually on your MV.

3.Have another bike for when your MV is in the garage for repair ( and you ride >1000miles /yr on this bike).

4.Have the patience of a saint when needing repairs/parts.

5.Do all your own repairs/mods/maintenance.

6.Be so smitten by MV's that you can't imagine life without it (and its faults).

So let's hear from you owners:drummer:.

IT´S A MATTER OF PASSION, IN MY CASE I KNOW IT´S NOT THE BEST BIKE IN THE WORLD BUT IT´S WHERE I FEEL IN HEAVEN WHEN RIDING.

I am filthy, but not Rich...I go by Chuck

2.Ride less than 1000 miles (1600kms) annually on your MV.

I've had my MV F4 312R for three years and it has 7800 miles on it.

3.Have another bike for when your MV is in the garage for repair ( and you ride >1000miles /yr on this bike).

Do you mean the Harley Davidson CVO Electa Glide (3200 mi/yr), the Ducati Monster S4Rs (5800 mi/yr), the Ducati 748s Track Bike (500 mi/yr), or the 1963 Honda Cub C100A resto project....(0 mi/yr)

4.Have the patience of a saint when needing repairs/parts.

I have two ex-wives...I should simply be Cannonized now. As far as repairs/parts...I know a guy....:naughty:

5.Do all your own repairs/mods/maintenance.

All...no. Most...yes Some that sane people wouldn't attempt...certainly.

6.Be so smitten by MV's that you can't imagine life without it (and its faults).

There is nothing in life that I need except life. Now, if you want to talk about my desires.....:blah:
So let's hear from you owners:drummer:.
:brutale:Become an owner and you'll reap the benefits...resistance is futile.:f4:

#6 only for me. I do have another bike, but not because my MV needs repairs. I've had zero problems with mine (except for a faulty turn signal) in almost two years of ownership. I've put 4,000 miles on mine in two years.....and I work for the government, so far from rich!

To be an MV owner you need to:

I wish
2.Ride less than 1000 miles (1600kms) annually on your MV.
Just turned over 10,000 miles
3.Have another bike for when your MV is in the garage for repair ( and you ride >1000miles /yr on this bike).
Sold my R1 because I never rode it after I got the MV
4.Have the patience of a saint when needing repairs/parts.
Very few issues
5.Do all your own repairs/mods/maintenance.
Do all maintenance and mods. Not all repairs
6.Be so smitten by MV's that you can't imagine life without it (and its faults).
You will understand after you own one.
So let's hear from you owners:drummer:.

Ahhhhh. Thanks Randy. The thread seems complete now. Terribly incorrect yet again (Brutie blah blah blah). But complete. :stickpoke

OK. I'll play.

1.Be filthy rich.
Terribly rich with friends.

2.Ride less than 1000 miles (1600kms) annually on your MV.
True. Gotta split my pleasure riding time between 2 street bikes, 1 track bike and 2 old cars.

3.Have another bike for when your MV is in the garage for repair ( and you ride >1000miles /yr on this bike).
True

4.Have the patience of a saint when needing repairs/parts.
True. Patience is a virtue.

5.Do all your own repairs/mods/maintenance.
No. Not really. May do a little, but prefer to spend my tiny portions of free time enjoying family, friends, motorcycles, shooting, cars, etc., than working on bikes and cars.

6.Be so smitten by MV's that you can't imagine life without it (and its faults).
Not particularly. I like experiencing differences in things, and subtleties of character and design. Hope to some day own one of each: Bimota, Benelli, Moto Guzzi, Aprilia. Life is more than MV Agusta and Ducati. I do generally love all things Italian - wine, women, motorcycles, guns, cars...

correct, i through coins to the peasants on the way to work.

2.Ride less than 1000 miles (1600kms) annually on your MV.

my butler takes my bikes out to make sure there is nothing wrong with them. I usually just use the bike to go get the mail. My driveway is 2.5 miles long.

3.Have another bike for when your MV is in the garage for repair ( and you ride >1000miles /yr on this bike).

My other 19 bikes are all MV's

4.Have the patience of a saint when needing repairs/parts.

my bikes never need repairs or parts. If something happens to it i just through it in the trash.(to join all the other Jap crap on the road)

5.Do all your own repairs/mods/maintenance.

see above.

6.Be so smitten by MV's that you can't imagine life without it (and its faults).

Like my license plate says....MV 4 LIFE

To be an MV owner you need to:

1.Be filthy rich. Nope

2.Ride less than 1000 miles (1600kms) annually on your MV. Not me

3.Have another bike for when your MV is in the garage for repair ( and you ride >1000miles /yr on this bike). Not really. Have a few, but Gina is the one that gets the most miles

4.Have the patience of a saint when needing repairs/parts. Never been an issue for me.

5.Do all your own repairs/mods/maintenance. By choice....I like to work on my bikes (and can).

6.Be so smitten by MV's that you can't imagine life without it (and its faults). Yes, although I also like pretty much all bikes....and what faults????? Gina has none.
There you have it :smoking:

No. I'm no pauper but I certainly don't "waste" money on motorcycles. MV or otherwise.

2.Ride less than 1000 miles (1600kms) annually on your MV.
No more or less. I do about 1,500km on racetracks only.

3.Have another bike for when your MV is in the garage for repair ( and you ride >1000miles /yr on this bike).
No. I have 5 other bikes. None of which are used as a substitute for each other.

4.Have the patience of a saint when needing repairs/parts.
No. Look carefully in the mirror.

5.Do all your own repairs/mods/maintenance.
Yes. Hence the cryptic answer to 4.

6.Be so smitten by MV's that you can't imagine life without it (and its faults).
No. It's just another tool hanging on the wall.

So let's hear from you owners:drummer:.
7. Are you a Mega-troll?

So, Randy.....

Was that picture on the other thread of you on a Honda Rune taken during your period of alternative lifestyle?:naughty::)

Happy New Year to all!

Cheers,
Al.
