F4 and brutale rear sets are different

Yes, the look almost exactly the same. But the lower arm on the Brutale is shorter and uses a different part number than the F4.

I never noticed that.

Interesting. So, assuming they frame plates are the same, the Brute pegs would be a little lower and further forward than the f4's. Just more evidence of the fantastic attention to detail.

Yes, the Brutale Pegs are modified to accommodate the great majority of Brutale riders who have artificial hips and knees

They force the Brutale rider to assume a more upright position.

1) The large packages most Brutale riders have makes bending over uncomfortable.

2) Brutale riders, unlike F4 riders, don't like bending over.

Are these "large packages" you refer to tank bags full of depends?

Brutale riders are much more accustomed to the annual prostate exam, F4 riders on the other hand don't have a frame of reference.

But don't take my word for it, look at the smilies:

<-- The Brutale rider naturally assumes the "ass up" position...

<--...while the F4 rider is clearly assuming the "about to mount" position.

It is just nature Carl, just nature...

I was hopping it would take longer than 3 posts for this thread to go sideways.

Like the comment 'CAG', Brutale riders don't like bending over

Bless, poor old inferm Brutale riders,

Must be hard hanging on to the Brut' when a practical, no need to bend over diesel runabout seems the best option to collect the pension
