Brutale Gets All The Attention

I've been riding a Ducati since 1993 but since I bought my 2004 Brutale I can't bring myself to leave the MV in the garage and ride my other bike. Of all the motorcycles I've owned and ridden, the Brutale is by far the biggest kick & most entertaining. Just clicked 7400 miles, time to get serviced. Installed an Arrow full system & other goodies. see pix...

Sweet! The Arrow parts look nice.

How do you like the steering damper?

Can the adjustibility go pretty stiff?

Yes, please give us a road test summary of Arrows steering damper and your Rizoma grips. Do you like them, how well do they function, would you purchase them again, like when you upgrade to a 910R?

The Arrow damper works very nice, 9 settings & no wiggles at high speed. I recommend it.

The Arrow damper is a big plus, setting 3 or 4 is perfect for most hard street riding. I have some track time comming up soon, we'll see how it works then. Rizoma grips are flashy, but I would not purchase them again. Installation is kinda tricky.
