New Brute owner (First MV)

Hi guys,
after many years lusting over a Brutale, the day has finally come. I picked up today a 2009 Brutale 1078RR. I have been wanting a 910R or 1078RR, but they are hard to come by. This one was in my neck of the woods and I was able to ride it home today. Bike had less than 400 miles when I picked it up, and little over 500 now. It still looks new. Still breaking in and I was mindful of that as I was riding it.

Bike is completely stock. First thing to go will definitely be the mirrors. Totally useless in current form.

Any MV riders in NW Arkansas?

Welcome to forum. Picked a beauty. Completely surprises me that there's not an Italian dealership over your way. Plenty of great roads to ride. I'm sure you'll enjoy them on your new MV!

"he's going the distance, he's going for speed"
'10 Brutale 990R ("Sophia")
'14 K1600GTL (Tour de Force)
'15 1290R (Torque monster)
'85 KZ700 (my first)

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on getting an almost new bike. It's a hell of a bike to bring you into the MV family. You'll love it.
The mirrors are a great first mod, but once you get started making improvements, it will be bloody difficult to stop. Enjoy!!

Dave.
