Well I drove up to Post Falls Idaho (where the hell is that?), and bought the MV Agusta last Thurs. I still don't think I'll ever sell my 1997 Ducati 900 SS/SP, but the F-4 1000S is truly amazing! If you have some $ to burn on a new bike, ride one. I only have 400 miles so far on mine, but what an incredible machine it is (I need some new adjectives). Sorry this isn't technically Ducati related.
