New Member: Brutale 750S

Hello! I'm a new member to mvagusta.net. I just bought a used grey 750S Brutale from a guy in LA on Oct. 31, then drove it up to the SF Bay Area. I'm the fourth owner and the motorcycle has 12K miles on it. I'm not sure, but I think I love this motorcycle.

I've been reading tech stuff on this message board for the last nine days since I got the Brutale. Lots of smart people here with good experience. My motorcycle is in good shape, but suffered from some mild neglect. So far I've done:

- brake & clutch fluids
- oil change
- TPS reset
- cleaned & oiled air filter
- tightened steering stem bearing

I'm going to service the hub next, as well as finish swapping fluids (coolant, rear brake fluid & fork oil). PCIII and dyno, then onwards to suspension tuning. I love working on this bike and am having a blast. I look forward to many years of happy ownership and learning more about this motorcycle on this forum.

-Matt

PS: Yes, that is me in the avatar!

Welcome to the club Matt,
I am in San Francisco and also have a silver S with 12K on the odo - your new toy could be my bike's evil twin . PM me if you're interested in riding on week-ends.
Cheers,
Pierre

It's gonna sound ridiculous, but I have a silver 750s with 12k miles and I'm moving to San Jose by the end of the month. I think this meet of the "axis of evil" needs to happen. ;-)

Wow, this looks like the makings of an epic Bay Area 750S ride. I'm up for rides for sure. . . any combo of the three of us sounds good. It would be also good to meet so I can learn more about your ownership experience. Stand by, will PM with deets.

Haha. That pic is photographic evidence that you can, indeed, highside an SV650. All it takes is one dumb wingnut behind the bars. Yup, got the manual and am working nearly every day on the bike, bit by bit, to get it up to acceptable condition. Thanks for the welcome!
