The MV is just fine ! It is without doubt the best bike I've ever owned/ridden. I'd clocked up 700 miles in 10 days (helped by a trip to South Devon) and even though I'm currently running in and keeping to the manufacturer's recommended 9,000 rpm (approx 105 mph in 6th) it is pretty awesome to ride. Powerful, lightweight, flickable, planted and of course the Italian styling. Then there's the sound of the rasping triple - crack the throttle, keep it pinned (to 9k at the mo) and let the quickshifter bang you through to 6th - it really is a sound to hear.

I'll try and get a few pickies and maybe a vid sorted out but in the meantime and in order to keep this all Camaro related, here's one to be getting on (Camaro + CBR 600RR)

Thanks! I could only imagine ....and you still have another powerband to get into after your run-in period. I guess you will be setting up a custom mode also. ...awesome...enjoy

Not sure if this link will work and it's pretty crap anyway but hey ho. Difficult to film, pull in clutch and press start button all at the same time! (There must be a better way to post a vid)

X2! Thanks for the update.... I tried the video, with no luck.

I was at the track yesterday "Victoria Day Special" ,..spectator and I have a couple pictures to share.. The Mohawk on his helmet helped him gain a 1/2 sec. The phone camera was not working properly, I had more bike pics....

LOL!! What kind of crazy person thinks it'd be a good idea to drag race a skidoo? Looks like there has been more than just racing going on at the circuit, judging by the pretty patterns made in tyre rubber.
