First of all I'd like to show my appreciation for this site being here....not only does it give a place for MV enthusiasts to congregate......this site has a "sophisticated" and classy feel just as the MV's do. I'm very glad to be a part of this community...........well with that being said...this is why.

I am part of other sportbike forums....and out of the excitement I've had with the recent purchase of my SPR.... I posted some pictures of my bikes on this website...and the comments left were..."he must be a drug dealer.."........"the MV is nice but my kawasaki is nicer any day..."....i guess there are alot of jealos people out there... I've had people make snide remarks when i first bought my Ducati....but i guess it doesn't get any better than an MV eh?

Just like the Corvette guys comparing their cars to a Ferrari!

Both are great performers but no one looks at a Corvette and says WOW!!

Class vs crass.

Jealousy is a good way to describe it. Another good pharse my dad always used for people that spoke like what you have described, "you can take them out of the trailer park, but you can't take the trailer park out of them!!" :flickoff: Let them be jealous b/c there is no way any of the their bikes compare to that SPR!

Agreed. I rarely go to gatherings anymore after a year of that sort of thing early in my mv exposure - even at the more mature ones. The worst part of ownership in my opinion is the poor commaraderie of our 'fellow' riders when a bike like this shows up.

I was once on the ground under an NR750 that pulled up to a weekly bike night type thing - just poking around. Couple of guys walked up and one made some outrageously offensive remark about something to do with looking at an MV when the NR was here. I found it funny that I was literally on my back poking around after having grilled the owner all while having a good time talking bikes.

It turned out the guy he was with knew me and said "oh, well that's his MV why don't you tell him"-pointing down at me. :laughing: He left :loser:

I've never understood this type of behaviour at something like a bike gathering. You'd think fellow motorcyclists would stick together but it seems to be the opposite some times doesn't it.

I Race my MV. I showed up at my local CCS regional race with my bike. I went through tech inspection.......All they could do is talk about how expensive the bike was and comments like "is must be nice". I was abit embarrased. Tech never even looked to see if my oil drainer cap was wired, or anything else.

I found this to be the norm at most tracks I go to. I've stopped tring to explain why I race it.

People are funny. Oh well.

Check out this response to one of my threads on another forum: (we were "discussing" why an R7 is valuable and he seemed to disagree with me

you were doing fine with your post till you said det at the end

that shows your stipidititi

becaw you can take and twist any post anyone writes into what you

and what you want to get out of it

or not get out of it

and derail it and make of it what ever you want to make it

to make the other person look stipid

but in reality your the stipid

sooo stipid

you're post is so ghey

P.S. an MV is a ghey bike and poser bike

By the way I also got people saying things like: "Ah I don't envy his bike note" To which I politely replied that there wasn't a bike note on mine... :king:

It's a nice feeling, I agree :king:

I however, have had nothing but positive responces from riders of Japanese, Ducati, Guzzi's and even Harleys! I thinkn it may have a lot to do with the different styling intentions of the F4 and the Brut, but I haven't met anyone who hasn't loved the bike, even a rider on a GSX-R750 who flagged me down to look at the bike :king:

Rise above them...the marque is steeped in history and has a magnificent rich past.
Its not being a snob at all, but if I receive similar treatment, I never try to defend my love of the bike nor reason why I purchased it.

You won't get that treatment here... :)

For every 1 smart ass comment I get, I get at least 100 good ones!... does that give you a hint? :stickpoke

Some people ask me what's that noise with my Duc (dry clutch noise), I tell them it's loose pocket change I lost in my exhaust!!!

You're always better off laughing it off than giving in to them and get mad... because that's when they have won! :loser:

...sometimes we behave in the same fashion too. All my Duc forum friends welcome my MV, but not all the MV forum members welcome all Duc's...

So I just stay away from confronting "their" issue... :loser:

It's all a matter of perception.

When someone looks at your bike and says "must be nice" look them straight in the face and say, "yes, aren't we lucky to be able to afford such nice toys"

Makes them realize that someone who can't have a bike at all looks at someone with a $12,000 Hondayamazuki the same as somone with a Ducati, MV or other such bike.
Toys are toys, some just cost more than others.

Remember, the guy with the 100 foot yacht looks at the guy with the 150 foot yacht and mumbles "must be nice"

Such problems..... :rolleyes:

Dear Jskipper,
Let me tell ya, I just bought and MV F4 1000 here and there is one more F4 I would like to have but can't at the moment, The SPR. It is a fantabulous soulful bike.
When I went over my riding and track buddy's house with my new MV he was quick to point out at the welds on my RG3 exhaust, "they were not very neat".. He is still agood friend but some people know the price of everything but the value of nothing.
