Out on the Brute today

Yes it was snowing, yes it was cold but i needed to get out so of we went.
Finished most of the mods now, all the carbon is nearly fitted as are the heated grips & the new wheels i bought from ebay. I was,nt too keen on the multi spoke marchesinis as i felt they were,nt in true MV style. So the star ones are on. Just need the Arrow can now if it ever arrives.

Hope you feel the wheels look ok as well. I had a couple of marks on them but i have found an identical touch up for them so you will never know. 2ct tyres fitted so very stable in the shitty slippy salty roads

I like the dark gray star wheels on your bike.....making me wonder how they would look on mine. ...I agree with Mycool...I approve.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

The STAR wheels are what drew my attention to MV's in the very beginning, I love'em. And those look very nice with your color scheme, nice...very nice!

Ta chaps..I thought MV had gone with the sheep to put multispokes on & dont really make the bike stand out as a true MV , Just as another bike with multispoke wheels.
Glad i managed to get a set. really tempted to sell the Marchesinis now, Cant see me putting them back on unless i just use the tyres through summer to get my moneys worth out of them

Cool

Looks great, I have to admit, though I'm not opposed to the multispoke Marchesini's or Brembo's at all, as long as they're matt black/charcoal.

But how on earth did you dare to go out? Temperature, clothing, grit on the roads, cold tyres... I admire you!

Us northern lads are hard as nails.. Bit of cold never keeps us in.

Not much wind today so windchill not bad, also very dry so most of the grit not melted just brushed to the side of the road.

I have been out most of xmas inc new years day. Went on the 999 that day

Looks great! It's cold here in Southern California as well. But we manage to tough out out with the temperature plummeting to the low 60's Farenheit (15 degrees Celsius). It gets a bit nippy riding in shorts and a t-shirt this time of year...
