Age?? Mostly old codgers...... not too many kids (squids) buy MV Agusta motorcycles.

Women??? Very few..... but there are a few active here.

Yep, I'll slot into the 'old codger' bracket.

Motorcycles are a love that is generally developed as a teen (or earlier) and held onto until our last days.

I purchased my first bike aged 17 in 1970 (Honda CB 175) and despite being without bikes at times during the triumphs and travesties of marriage now have a collection as listed below. While I love my Hondas, no Honda, in my opinion, will ever parallel the grace and reputation of MV's F4.

I wanted a motorcycle for 25 years. MV is my first motorcycle. This is a conscious choice. The first thing I thought when I went for the first time is why it is so cold and scary. (Murmansk is located in the north of Russia). Now 9 months a year I think about my friend MV and only 3 months I can manage. Unfortunately, we do not have specialists or dealers so that these 3 months can be without repairs and settings.

35 here. I got my first bike, an SV 650, when I was 23. Got my Brutale when I was 28. When I refer to the forum/MV community, my fiancée calls it my "old man club". The "old codgers" in this club are awesome and their experience has been invaluable while dealing with the "bumps" that come along with owning an MV

Young guns have good taste too! 28 and love my MV. Just showed up to a car/bike show and (yes I know I'm biased) my bike was the best looking. Hands down.

45 years on bikes, not my age. Every time I get on my moto its the first. Every time I get off my bike its anticipation of the next ride. Simple really. Few know I have my MV and those few don't really know the history of motos or bikelife little alone MV. I don't ride to impress, I just ride, solo... That said I do however appreciate this forum.

I think many, if not all, of us had good taste at 28 or younger. For me, it was the 'affordability' of the MV that I was nowhere near. This is why so many post appear such as: 'I always wanted one.' Family commitments take their toll on incomes and leaves many of us to settle for second best or nothing at all.

Only when those commitments have been met and we have the later life stability do we return to our 'youthful' aspirations and start shelling out some coin.

A useful analogy is to remember as a kid when we would see grey-haired old fogeys prancing around in Ferraris, Maseratis, Lambos, etc. They had reached the stage of financial independence.

Now, we are those old fogeys except on bikes, with the exception of SS703 and his trick Corvette!!:wink2:
