Recently I watched Long Way Down and Long Way Round, two series on Netflix featuring Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman who took BMW GS bikes around the world and then from top to bottom. I love the series and highly recommend them.
What does that have to do with this bike, absolutely nothing as a sport bike would be the last choice to take on a round the world adventure. However, as I kick a can around the starting lot at Deezul, the MGD Frenzy would be the bike to choose to explore improved roads around the country.
Typically, MGD builds cruisers. The land behemoths full of chrome and attitude. Venturing into sport bike territory is a newer avenue. For the record, I love sport bikes though I would not choose one in RL. I can just imagine my back hurting, feeling cramped and of course scared to death of the blinding performance. Hmmm...who am I kidding, I would love to get my ass on a sport bike!
The Frenzy is a fun sport bike cruiser. I was able to get some decent lap times out of the bike riding Deezul Challenger and I think given some time to tweak settings, I would do far better. From what little I know about race bikes, I've had to adjust settings to match my system and how I ride. Out of the box performance for a lap leader would be a likely miss for most riders. To go faster, you'll need to tweak the settings. As a race bike, I wasn't able to get the performance and I have to say I owe more of that to my lack of skill.
From the looks department, you can change colors from the out of the box pale green. The black suited me best and I should really think about branching into some color for bike choices. I'm way to monochromatic. As a sport bike, having the whitewalls was a unique touch for me. It gave the bike more of a retro meets future look which I appreciate.
Nonetheless, this is a fun riding bike. I didn't have any trouble getting around the track and out of the box it was set up for a fun 5th gear ride. Now back to a round the world adventure on dirt...well MGD has something just for that and I'll take out my pen to write about an amazing dirt bike very soon. Until then, just enjoy the ride, protected from the wind with a high revving motor under me. Can it get any better?
About MG Designs
I found MG Designs on Facebook several months ago and I kept making mental notes to find this builder inworld. My Sherlock Holmes investigative skills gave into me reaching out to Meso. I'm glad I did because not only did I get introduced to a new bike builder (new to me), I met a really nice person who is not only a good builder but a conscientious person who cares about his customers. That makes him a special find in SL and a more rare find in RL.
Visit the MG Designs showroom and then play with the bikes. I'm pretty sure, you will have a tough time finding a better bike and I'm very sure you will have a tough time finding a better person with which to do business.
