Hi, So i cant believe its been 6 months since i bought my very first MV F4.
After a 5 month rebuild i am now legally insured (you really dont want to know how much:wtf:) as well as the legally required power restriction which will last another 7 months on my bike (then i will have full power). As from yesterday i am now officially on the road with my F4:yo:
So over the next few days i shall be hitting the roads with my dad. I even went to collage on it today:f4:
I shall be adding some more pictures to this thread over the bank holiday weekend of my ride outs. I am now living my own MV Agusta F4 dream:smoking: Thanks for reading Brando

Nice bikes. Couldn't the government mandate larger license plates? :jsm:

Nice Brando, I know you have been waiting a long time. I must have been even harder, since you've been in possession of the bike for so long. It looks great, and have fun.

What amount of power restriction do have to run under out of curiosity, do you have to put a governor on the bike? And does it limit RPM's or speed?

Hi Ian. Yes because of the unique way that the UK riding laws used to be. Anyone who is under 21 has to have a two year 33hp restriction and then after two years the restriction is automatically lifted.
I know what your thinking, however its now worst:wtf:. The above law has now changed as from January 2013 this year. Now you have to be 24 years old to ride a motorcycle bigger than a 600cc. This is thanks to the way our country allows the European Union to dictate even more controlling laws to us:bash:
However because i took my licence in febuary 2012 before jan 2013, the new laws dont apply to me, so after my restriction is automatically lifted i will be 19 years old:naughty: So yes i will jump through all the controlling hoops that is required of me for the rest of this year, i don't mind after knowing how other young riders are now treated.
Its interesting that there has been a 70% fall in young people taking any riding licences in the UK. One now has to take 3 thats 3 separate sets of riding licences over the 8 years from when you are 17 years old.
From 125cc, 250cc and 300cc, the most powerful bike permitted for an under 24 is now 46bhp.
My MV does not feel to bad, its still 3 times more powerful than my 125 commuter. The rev limiter is approx 4200rpm :( and the top end should be about 100mph. It feels as powerful as a Kawasaki 250-300.
Hey guys, dont take the pi55:) I am one of the last under 24s that will be seen on an MV agusta here in the UK, so at least i am living the dream:yo: The UK is killing of motorcycling:jerkoff: If i was under the new laws/rules, i would not see you guys for another 6 years:(
Yea, the number plates:jerkoff: Its like another aerodynamic restriction:smoking: Brando

Good for you Brando,
you`re out on the road on an MV. At least in the future you will be able to pull that evil rev limiter off and it will be like having an entirely different bike. Bring on the burning of the rev limiter party. Well done.

Well I'm glad I am out of that group of younger riders,it's hard for anyone outside the uk to understand our laws regarding riding bikes and our number plate size.With you now on your M.V. you will be the envy of everyone so lap it up big time.

Man, I'm glad I did my test over there in the early 80's. That sucks big time Brando. Guess the government is getting what they want. Less of those awful killer bikes on the road. Wankers!

Hi, I forgot to say. If I do anything wrong during my restricted two years and my licence is taken away from me. I then have to take my test again under the new rules, which mean no MV till I am 24.:wtf:
So this is the reason everything on my bike is as required by law. Then once my restriction is up.............tiny number plate and 16,000 RPM!!! because they can't take my licence away from me:f4: Brando
