New to the forum

Hello guys, new to the forum, just purchased a Brutale 2004 750 the other day and took it for a ride today( first time on a road bike for about 20 years) what a great feeling, very careful with the accelerator and those big front brakes, doing a riding refresher course in a couple of weeks which should help with the confidence of riding in traffic. I have noticed a muffled beep comming from under the seat approx. every 5 minutes is this normal? Looking foreward to some good rides. Regards Graeme.

Hi Graeme. Welcome to the forum mate.
The beep under the seat is probably an alarm system, I would think it would have gone of by now where it a bomb.....it's not an MV thing if that helps.

Hi Graeme, welcome to the happiest place on earth. Well done on your MVA purchase. Actually, it's also been about 20 years since I rode a bike and I also took a refresher course. Kind of funny, after two decades I found riding so easy and got my confidence back quickly. Enjoy!!

No worries, Graeme.

I took the Brute for a ride up to Dorrigo today. Went past Nana Glen, Karangi etc.
Confidence is a state of mind. You don't have to wait ...just pm me. We'll take it at your pace, within your comfort zone .

I had a mate visit last year from New Caledonia (last month too btw), just retired like me. Not only hadn't he ridden in 30 years but he's used to driving on the right side! I put him on the Brute and we took off for a week ride from Sydney to EB the back way. I was on the Beemer with all the luggage, leading the way at his pace. I did enjoy it too.

It was the subject of another thread :
http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=45939

I'll pm you my phone.

Cheerio.
