New Bike, new member

Hello gang. I purchased a 2012 1090 Brutale R a few weeks back. I have been reading your posts, great site. I have owned bikes for 40 years, but this is my first MV. I am looking at having fun going broke changing parts out and making it mine,etc. I would really like your thoughts,on the following:
-new exhaust
- belly pan
- computer chip, etc for exhaust
- misc
I still own a Duc, Multi , and just sold a Duc Monster that I spend $ fixing up. I have owned three other Ducs, BUT I always wants to own a MV!
The options for the MV appear limited compared to my pasts Ducs and I am looking forward to some direction from you guys that have experience with the MV bikes! Thanks in advance .
PS; I REALLY like the bike. It is a Work of Art that will rip my ears off...

AdamV, I just noticed you own a BMWs1000rr. My next bike. I came very close to purchasing one early this year. No question the fastest bike I have ever ridden ( except a Honda Blackbird with a twin turbo). The RR is a machine, scared the heck out of me!!! Loved it. I had to remember to breath when I ran it thru 1-3rd gear! I really NEED one for my collection! I need just get the nuts to drive one ( and the money after the MV)...

Welcome George!

The 1090 is an awesome machine and I am sure you will fall in love with her. If you are really into modifications, my advise is: start with the stock mirrors. They are USELESS. I, for example fitted a pair of Rizomas on my 2011 1090RR along with a pair of Melotti LED blinkers. I really like the looks of the stock exhaust cans but I wanted to get rid of the cat. So after debating for a while I went for Arrow headers and mid pipe (Arrow part number 71450MI) and kept the stock silencers along with the stock ECU. This set up is perfect for my liking - a bit louder and raspier but not too loud and the bike seems to run a bit cooler and smoother. There are also a ton of accessories available online - check the forum sponsors like evolutionbike.it and the others.

Cheers!

Welcome! I have a 749 and hope to always have a duck next to my MV. Although I've always wanted a Monster just to be able to run the license plate frame, "My other monster is my wife" One day...
