I'm a MV newbie looking forward to the riding season!

Hello all,

I've just purchased a 2011 Brutale 1090RR and I'm picking it up later this month. I have been so excited for this bike after reading and watching every review imaginable from the internet.(over and over again) Where I live, I can't ride all year. We have about a 5 month riding season and two of those months are cold and wet. I live in the city of Temiskaming Shores Ontario Canada, and we still have two feet of snow in the front yard and roads filled with sand and salt. This part of Canada has had a bone chilling winter this year!!

The one thing that has me concerned is after finding this MV forum website and going through all the links and posts; I've noticed many people have issues with their MV's... Every other thread someone is posting problems they have had or are having with either their dashboard, ignition or other... I've also read a lot of good posts but it's not the good posts that concern me..

My previous bike which I sitll own but is for sale is a 2012 Ducati Streetfighter 848. I also belonged to the SF forum and can't remember ever seeing so many posts about ride stopping mechanical issues with the bikes.

I'm looking forward to being part of this new to me MV community and wish everyone a safe riding season!

Here is to hoping I don't get a lemon!

P.S The package that comes with the purchase of the bike is really cool!... I see a key, a key chain, a USB stick (strange) and four small booklets one of which is a user manual. Any idea what the USB and booklets are used for? The user manual, key and key chain are pretty obvious..

Cheers!

Welcome to the forum. The bike you just bought is one of the most reliable you can get.
Remember , most people join forums looking for help, there's many more out there just riding and having fun.

Interesting - I was just commenting to a freind that when I compare the Ducati forum to the MV forum it seems like the MV owners are mostly delighted with their purchase. The Multistrada forum is often filled with all kinds of bitching. My own Ducati experience has actually been blissful - couldn't be happier. Maybe I just haven't read enough of what's in this forum.

That said - where the hell is the clock and fuel gauge on my new 1090RR?

Welcome to the MV world. Be careful worrying about something that might never come to pass. Have owned my Brutie for over 2.5 years and she has truly been a great bike. The bonus, can't help but turn and look back at her after a ride. The artful beauty of these bikes is intoxicating. How bout that positive review!

Welcome indeed

beautiful Brutale you got there!
and don't be to worried, any Ducati forum I was active in was just as well filled with people that had problems. as stated before, few people will start a thread saying "Hi, my 916SPS has had no issues with rocker flaking or rectifier/regulator problems". That's one of the main reasons you most of the time only see threads with problems.

The best thing is that they are actually there, an active community with plenty experience in issues is a valuable asset when you do run into an issue. First thing I checked out before purchasing my 910S Gladio was the SPU unit, which I wouldn't have done if there were no threads on this forum talking about them failing.

So when the sun kicks back in, leave the worries at the doorstep and enjoy the ride

Thanks for the welcoming responses everyone! Lots of positive reviews and feedback from everybody. I'm going to be a proud MV owner! My buddies still think I'm crazy for leaving my 848 Streetfighter behind but what do they know! Can't wait for the first ride. The only thrills I've had so far is reading reviews and comments from everyone. What would we do without You Tube?? I'm buying this bike solely on the reviews and of course I'm a die hard naked fan.
