Megamoto world does seem pretty slow, I had a lovely ride yesterday and popped up a couple of snaps over on my site as I can make pix big there.

Do we know how many there were all said and done? I know the number in the USA seems like 106 before attrition, but I'm not sure how many were made and sold elsewhere.

Cry Sold MM

Well I decided to sell the Mega. It went within a week and seeing it ridden away I can't help but think I am gonna miss it more than any other bike. Still its done now. I haven't decided what to get to replace it yet.
Question: if you couldn't/didn't have a MM. What bike would you want?
Money is an issue

This is a great thread and I'll be sure to keep checking in as after all, we are all very like minded individuals

I'm not sure on the costs, but if you are mostly on fun and twisty back roads I'd have a serious think about one of these...

See I said we are like minded both are at the top of my list. The 690 is winning though at the moment.

Not as comfy, but should be great fun

This is what I did after the MM. If you want something a bit cheaper just for toying around how about a 690Duke instead of the 690SMC. You gotta love that 990SM but its almost the same price as the S1000RR. In any event, good luck searching for your next ride. I find shopping for a new machine always puts a big smile on my face.

Seriously ugly! The tail looks like something I made in my shed. The undertray is also weird on the MM.

It is the tail of the HP2 Sport, looks great for me.

I remember an HP2 Sport with some MM parts :

That looks a lot better. It's all in the details. Those pipes from M-tec are far too long, and the connector pipes looks untidy. The seat looks like it doesn't fit
