The new beginning!

So I crashed!
That was the end of last season and the end of life for my trusty Honda CB 1000R. As I was lying by the side of the road waiting for the ambulence, I started thinking, maybe now is the time to buy myself a Brutale.
That very same afternoon (after a breif hospital visit) I found a lowmilage 06 Brutale with the -10 hub and de-catted.
To my wifes misbelief I bought it. Made a minor test ride to see if everything was working and that was about it...

After having the bike for almost 6 month in my shed, I manage to hack away so much ice on my driveway today so that I could reach the main road.

Since my tires are brand new and the roads full of pebbles and water I promised myself to take it easy.

But after working my way up trough the gears I suddenly got aware about that sound. And when I gave a little on the throttle THAT GRUNT!

CouldnŽt any body have give me a warning. That kind of noise is addictive...

After returning safely to home (with my license still in my wallet) I just sat there in silence and try to digest this first real impression of my brut.
It is just what I always wanted my CB 1000R to be, and that just the engine... I really looking forward to do some twisties on saturday and my trackday at the end of this month.

But I can already tell, this is the biginning of something good!

Cheers!

I get the same feelings everytime that I'm out on my Brut. The noise is dangerously addictive!

The noise got me too. I've since fitted an Arrow de-cat pipe to enhance it further.

The last bike to get me by noise as a Ducati 900 Monster - one of the best bikes I owed. I'm hoping to have a great relationship with the MV too!

Enjoy. I was worried you were going to say you crashed again because of the road conditions.

Just wait until you experience the spontaneous attention and affection from attractive ladies when you're out riding said Brutie........

"Chicks dig Brutie riders......". It's a scientific fact.

I was out again today, and some of my favorite B-roads are pretty beaten up because of the long and hard winter. The handling is fine and cornering is like a dream. But going over bumps she feels really stiff. A almost pied in my pants a couple of times. The CB 1000R was more forgiving. I recall the same stiffness from my old Cagiva Raptor. DonŽt know if I need to fiddle with the suspension or if that makes matters worse?

Maybe IŽll get used to it eventually...

I accept your premise, I reject your conclusion.

I loved the noise my 06 made after I swapped the cat for an Arrow mid-pipe. There was the burble from 5-6k that made you keep it there constantly just to hear. Nastly little bikes those 910s are.
