While watching the news this morning I saw a very interesting Sport Tourer on a commercial. Having U-verse I was able to rewind and freeze on the MST logo then proceed to the Internet for a search. To my surprise I found a new bike manufacturer in my back yard ( sort of).
I live in Tuscaloosa and own a ’98 Ducati ST2 that I purchased new and later bought a 999s. I’ve always favored the ST bikes for their sportiness and utility and just wanted to give you guys a shout and a thumbs up for a rather unique looking ST.
If you allow visitors at your Birmingham facility please let me know and if down this way to hit some twisties, let me know.

Hi Wayne. You are welcome to visit our factory, which is located in the original location of the Barber Museum in the Lakeview district of Birmingham. Best time for us would be after the first of the year. Thanks for the kind words!
