Well, after almost two years, my 02 MV is on consignment. :(greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread
Well, I finally did it. The '02 MV is on consignment with Cyclemoto, my local Ducati dealer.
I decided to let go because:
1) I want an '04 Yamaha R1 and need to payoff more on my '02 to make the trade sometime in late 2004. Most of all,
2) In a few months, I have a Elise coming in and $15K off the credit reports/debit will go a long way.
3) The MV's a great bike to take to the canyons and track but I haven't really had a chance to go to either recently. So, it's just been mostly crusing the carpool lanes to work (which the R1 does a much better job at, btw).
Maybe someday, if the budget allows, I'd find myself on a MV Mille. But I need to take one step back so I can take two steps forward next year!
But don't think you guys can get rid of me so easily. I've been harassing this board since early 2000 and will continue to do so! :)
PS: Anyone want a diamond silver 2002 MV bi-posto w/ 7K miles? ;)

Lotus Elise... I live in Mi, and saw the car, meet Mngr from Lotus, here in Ann Arbor (US R&D). Good choice, I would just have wish a styling update. Did you read the latest article in Road&Track (?). Is it going to be your daily driver?

It may be my daily driver and share that duty with the R1. In a worst case scenario, I could get a really cheap beater car.
The only hard part is the wait. I anticipate it will be another 6 to 9 more months....and I'm already missing the MV. I actually stopped by the shop tonight just to see the MV through the window. (how pathetic). I only have these images to try and convince me I've done the right thing: http://www.elisetalk.com/forums/showthread.php? s=&threadid=1165&perpage=20&pagenumber=1
