Hello:

I followed a link to this site sent to me by Samson, the great fellow at Pro Italia that sold me the most wonderful item I have ever owned...An MV Agusta Tamburini.

The link led to two pages of photos of the bike I bought (good job by the way, I hope you don't mind if I grab all and put into my IPhoto)

Anyway, I've spent the past four hours wandering around the site and just read the forum posting about reg and posting...so I decide to do both. Great site, great passion and a whole bunch of smart folks, a tad obsessed, but definitely smart. Part of what I have always loved about these bikes is the design, attention to detail, the smoothness (both the ride and appearance) and the total art & intelligence that surrounds the entire MV culture. This site AND the Tamburini reflects all of those attributes.

The bike has turned me into a drooling idiot though, I find myself staring at it for hours. It also inspires me as I drool.

The ride...equally inspiring and geez, what can I say, perfect.

welcome to the MVAA... I was the guy that took the pictures @ pro Italia just a few days before you bought it... you are lucky because I was going to come back that same afternoon to buy it with a bag of cash but the armor truck I was going to hit didn't show up :laughing: :laughing:

Anyway, that is one sexy bike... the only thing was that I didn't like the dark windscreen that was on it though... are you going to get a new plate on the yoke with your name on it?

Just noticed in your profile that you were in the music business too... also you live just a few miles up La Cienega from me.

All joking aside, very nice to have you here!

Thanks O...The dark windscreen is going to find it's way into a nice plastic bag and the orig will go back on the bike (just picked it up) Yes, not too far from C City at all. I have been asking about a new yoke plate, seems I'm on my own...so off to the neighborhood jeweler. The plate comes out, so I will have the back engraved or new plate made, it's about the size of your little finger you know.

Thanks to you as well A01.

Congrats on a very drool worthy bike :smoking: Normally I don't like the tinted screen but on the Tambo, it looks not too bad at all.

Cheers

awesome machine!

about that smoked windscreen...
who makes it?
i think i'm going to change out the stock one - especially for track days. the optical distortion of the stock screen is so bad that it's like i'm trippin' on acid when i'm looking through it. not a big deal when i'm on the couch, but at a buck-fifty in a turn i've already got my hands full. i don't need visions!

Not sure Alex...the bike didn't come with any data on the screen. Try Pro Italia, as I'm pretty sure they installed it.

Went to the dealer last week and they are still waiting on the Ti mid-pipe. They have been told that it is actually now in the US (they were waiting for it from Italy). I hope to get some news today. When I was there they had taken the fairings off and were wiring up the alarm. They had also installed the PirateLair clear turn signals and the Ti windscreen. I have to say the turn signals and the windscreen looked trick...much better than I had expected. I will update folks as soon as I hear something.
