Thanks MV community (that's you)

Hi Guys,

I've been part of this forum since purchasing my 2009 Brutale 989R (some 12 months ago), but have only ever taken advice and tips from you all, I've never contributed.

A week or ago I came back here for some more knowledge after discovering the rear bearings in my bike were finished. After much searching and reading I contacted Mich aka"Mitchy", aka "The Hub Man", who shared his massive data bank on this issue with me.

After discussing the problem further with the guys who help me look after my bike it was decidided that a new Mitch Hub would replace the original.

On contacting Mitch he informed me that he had just sold the last of his stock and that he would have to get one from overseas for me. Less than 3 hours later I was contacted by Joe, aka "joetogo123", from the other side of the planet. 30min or so after that contact, the Hub was paid for and delivered to the post office, and is now enroute to Canberra, Australia. Couldn't have been easier if everyone lived on my street. Thank you to all involved, you blokes are awesome!

And thanks to all you blokes that contribute to this awesome site. Because of you all I'll be back out there riding sooner rather than later.

Beautiful!! And now start to contribute

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.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Welcome Jay,
The "Mitch "hub is a smart move. Any of your other hub/ rear brake parts damaged ?
