After phoning the very helpful KJM can I say a Big thanks to KJM and Reddog (always very helpful) for getting the cafe racer to burgess hill for there open weekend, took the cafe out for a good spin on Sunday very impressed :) :) the riding position is a cross between the naked tnt, and the tornado sports position, felt really good and extremely secure :D I tried to make it stop and not start but it was perfect I think it would be excellent for eating up the miles. the suspension is fully adjustable front and back :D :D the power delivery is very smooth….. Played with the map button on the dash but didn’t really feel any major difference……………………………… veeeerrrrryyy tempted.;) ;)
Also tried the MV Agusta wow….superb!!
I then swung my leg over the moto morini what an engine it’s a ‘v’ twin with so much torque its sick it has more front than Jordan :eek you could be as lazy as you wanted with the gears it just didn’t matter, twisting the right hand to the max made me grin like the joker…would I have one……… well only for an expensive second bike (wife’s looking over my shoulder at the moment) :rolleyes so that means no… I have to say the power was great and the handling pretty good, but it looks like a cross between a motocrosser and a pram :\ and the riding position made you want to plant your foot as you entered the corner (supermotard style) if one came up for under £4500 :lol I would consider it. But what bike do I want…….. the Benelli café racer :D :D :D

Wow:eek With the MV on show then I thought that it would have been a 'no brainer' decision on what bike would be picked:eek Still, the MV for a track bike would be fantastic but the cafe racer would be a great all rounder I suppose.

Do I smell a trade in at some point?;)

Al, Without a doubt the MV was the winner in looks/style :D but my preference is based on how and where I ride....I have done over 16000 miles (over 2 bikes) since this time last year with 6000 of that in Europe when we have to hit the motorways :\ I would definitely prefer the sports set up but 80% of my riding is done on twisty smaller roads (lots of map planning to find them) this is where the TNT set up is perfect :D …………… now the cafe racer seems to have the compromise between both bikes which is making me very tempted >D ... Ideally I want one of each but my wallet wont quite open wide enough (trust me I’ve tried) :eek: .....my brother has just got hold of a GSX K6 1000 all in black what an animal but after ½ an hour my wrists and back made me feel and look like Quasimodo 0] (not the face aspect just the body) so thats why an old fossile like me prefers the cafe racer ;)

Those are valid reasons me ol' mucker not to have an MV but ...... that TNT will be a bugger to wash though:rollin
All those little fiddly bits to try and clean;) Nah, gimme as much fairing as you can throw on a machine and that'll do me.
I'll say one thing though, the TNT is a nice looking bike and if it goes as well as you say then that's even better. However, I'm going through this stage in my life where I'm clinging onto my youth and I need to look as attractive (and young) as I possible can to the opposite sex:rollin
