I have been assimilated...

I found this forum while doing research on a new bike. I was looking for my first sportbike. I'm a newbie rider and I've only been licensed since last May (BRC and ERC, with Rider Coach app pending), but in that time I acquired a Suzi DRZ-200 to practice, then a BMW F650GS which is fun on dirt and street. After one year and 23k+ miles on the GS, I've been longing for a street bike. As a 5'2" female with a 27" inseam, there aren't a lot of options. Another Beemer would have been too big, and nothing else really got my attention except maybe a Duc.

I started at this forum responding to the thread, "Where are the women" and got lots of great advice and information from your forum. Thanks so much - you completely influenced my decision, or at least reinforced my choice. One of the members suggested that I start a new thread, so here it is.

After narrowing it down to a Monster or Brutale, I test rode both bikes today. Wow! I thought the BMW was a great bike but it's a brute - shifts and brakes like semi compared to these bikes. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a big BMW fan, but the Duc was a whole new experience. It shifted like butter, accelerated as though it were in flight, and carved corners like a dream. Smooooooth.

Then I rode the Brutale. Holy crap. This has all the fun of a Ducati plus the personality of a feisty red head. This little bike wants to be rode hard and put away wet. Although I test rode the 910, I bought the bike that originally caught my eye: the 2005 silver/red 750. She'll be ready for pickup next Tuesday, and the space in the garage is cleared - right next to the BMW and Suzi. Can't wait to bring it home.

Arizona? So, would that be Renaissance Motorcycles?

I'm married to a fiesty redhead, and now that I have the brute...well, that makes me a very lucky sob.

Welcome, and that's a really droolworthy pic.

Okay. I'm going to have to stop by there next time I'm in town. They are a MV dealership, right? I checked MV's site and they're listed as a dealer....but then again, I'm not surprised.

That's great! It's a wonder alternative to AZSBK (I had a fall out with them) or traveling 90 miles to Tucson. Thanks for letting me know!

BTW, do they have any F4s in stock? I've sent them an e-mail but probably won't here from them till Tuesday.

YES! The formal opening of the Ducati shop is this weekend, and yes, they carry MVs too. I bought the 2nd MV from them and they haven't even formally opened yet. You might want to tell them how you found out about them. And yes, there are a few F4s. Don't remember how many and what color as I was blinded by my own desires. Tell them Michelle sent you.

Don't know if you knew this but AZSBK moved to a new location near Victory BMW. I pop in now and then but Scottsdale is a better location for me.

mloyllo-

Welcome to you and your bike(s)!! Great choice, especially for someone who hasn't been longing for an MV for years.

I think we should take DNA samples from you and the other ladies represented on this sight and genetically engineer the next generation of women riders.

I'm also envious of your 11-month annual riding season. Thanx for being here.
