    The noise never bothered me, but the fumes give a new meaning to the expression "blue murder" when you're stuck behind one warming up
    for a few minutes in parc fermé. After wondering if you're going to pass out or chuck up, a warm-up lap is sometimes barely enough to clear your head...

    I must admit I wasn't familiar with the early V4's, getting stuck behind one must be like smoking four Gauloises at the same time :puke2

    I may be a little weird but those DKWs and NSUs of that era were really cool machines.
    The hand hammered aluminum tanks left in a rough state like that are Art to me.

    With the handwriting on the wall and all bikes limited to four cylinders , MV Augusta made one last grasp effort to get their four stroke bike on equal footing with the 2 stroke crowd.
    It was a worthy effort , just fell short.
