    My other Italian Lady

    Had her from new which was 5 years yesterday. MV Agusta F4 312RR Monoposto. 1078cc modified to around 180 BHP at the rear tyre and a few of the geometry things from when they ran an F4 in British Superstocks.

    She is scarily fast and completely analogue with zero rider aids.

    Nice MV.
    Bikes:
    2007.5 Tuono-Black, with 1102cc's of micah's badness!
    2012 Griso-Silver and black, Agostini pipe, some carbon bits.
    2006 Vespa GT200-bitubo suspension all around, Malossi big-bore, head and cam, Akrapovic pipe, all put together by Micah.

    gone 2002 Caponord-Oyster gray (as faithful as a hound dog)
    gone Futura-Red (on the AF1 showroom floor. Get some.)

    The more I learn about people, the more I appreciate rocks.

    Superb, always loved MVs, right from the Hailwood, Surtees Agostini days.
    Went to a Classic bike meet in the 90s and there were several Augusta America 750s doing demo laps, the highlight of the meet. That instead of watching Mansell win at Silverstone's GP.
    John Surtees started a dedicated memorial fund,in his late son Henry's name and using two of his old racing F1 Ferraris, to aid The Kent Air Ambulance(a cause dear to my heart, literally)Choice of Helicopter an Augusta.
