Medical Warning...

You know that warning on the Viagra commercials... if you experience an erection lasting more than four hours, call a doctor?

Well.. I spent five hours on my Brutale today, so somebody please... Call a doctor!!!

I rode up to Ventura along PCH, then up and down a few canyons. I absolutely love this bike. It seems to enjoy blasting around the canyons like it was made for a mountainous Mediterranean climate. Hmm... I wonder why! I experienced the best mileage yet on this bike (30.5 mpg). It was 92F outside (according to my brother's K12GT) and sitting in traffic, Bruty's oil temp read a new observed high of 217. I notice that anything above 201 and I start feeling it on my right heel. It's going to be a hot summer.

The bike developed a nasty stalling problem on the way back home... the same one written up on the board extensively. It stalled eight times stopping in traffic along PCH. I guess I have a trip to the dealer coming up soon.

Here are some pics...

Very nice bike!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

great write-up
31.5 mpg?
that's more than i've EVER gotten.... and i have the pciii/usb on board

as for the stalling problem.... as you said: they ALL do it

STILL: the WEIRDEST thing about MY 910R....
there is NOTHING in the RPM range between 1,350 and 2,200

even if i move the throttle 1 micron from 1,350... it's already at 2,200

no matter how many times they work on it
of course.... John/airfuel could fix that... i have NO doubt

I can only dream of those sorts of consumption figures!

I've noticed something else about the stalling problem - there seems to be special sensor that detects when you've lane split to the front of the lights between two powerful cars that want to race you. This sensor then stalls the engine just as the lights go green...

I find that issue with the throttle too Greg. It seems to be related to the set-up of the unit itself and the springs more than anything else though - IMHO.

When a passenger of the foot moves in sight, tootle the horn trumpet melodiously to him at first. If he still obstacles your passage, tootle him with vigor and express by word of mouth the warning, "Hi, hi."

Fantastic pictures, by the way. You have a great eye. What sort of camera was it?

Wow, Beautiful Bike. Nice pics. As Sventekoz mentioned, great eye.
I love the red frame, reminds of a red thong on a beautiful girl, you know who you are(in case my gf decides to read my posts, hehe). I some times wished the 910R had the red frame option, but then again that would take away from the stealth look.
I do have a couple questions for you. What kind of frame sliders are those and were you concerned with the direct mount to the engine block head? I read a post here how a member shorted the frame slider and used a bolt to mount the sliders into the head of the prexisting bolts of the engine block. I was thinking of doing the same thing. But have to do all the cutting and fabricating myself, and was thinking if i am just over reacting on the whole notion that direct frame slider bolt on will strip the engine head in case of a bad drop.

thanks for sharing the pics

No they don't "all do that." Carefull throttle body sync and tps adjustment will take care of the stalling.

The throttle just off idle: Yes they all do that. I don't think it is curable, but I will try a few more things when the brute comes out of hibernation. But, it sure does make for fast get aways!!

Oil temp? What you are looking at water temp and those temps are normal and nothing to worry about! Wish I was out riding......

The camera is a little point-and-shoot Canon SD700 IS. I love it 'cause it fits in my jacket pocket. I used to carry around a Canon digital Rebel SLR with a bunch of lenses when I traveled. Not anymore!

I absolutely hate the way those frame sliders look, but they're a damn site prettier than a damaged frame. To be honest, I didn't give a second thought as to how they were mounted. They were what was available at Pro Italia when I took Bruty in for its first service. I'm always on the lookout for better looking/more effective sliders. Suggestions welcome.

Oops... did I say "oil temp?" I meant "coolant temp."
