I got caught out on my Brutie last week while scouting the ride for the Bubbalicious. I was in Dawsonville which is 15 miles from Dahlonega (my destination) and 60 miles from home. Here it came, and I mean it poured on me. I had on a mesh knit jacket, perferated gloves, vented boots........everything you need to ride in the rain (aaaak!).

I was on my way to visit the new MV dealer in Dahlonega. When I finally got there, I was soaked completely except my noggin.

I now know what dry balls are worth to me. I paid $114 for new kevlar jeans and cheap gloves. I had an additional tshirt, and the mesh jacket dried out on the way home.

Dry underware? Nah, sometimes commando just works.

I replaced just the pegs on my 910R....the basic pegs are the same as a Ducati....I got mine from a now defunct vendor of ill repute in the UK who shall remain nameless, but I am sure you can find something out there.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
