Yet Another First Ride Story

Well, I am following suit with all the other accounts and telling the story of my first ride.

First off, beautiful bike, but that is a given, its an MV.

I thought I knew what to expect, people would stare, dogs would bark, and old lady's would frown. As I was warned, the next now hurts, and the wrist are killing me.

What I didn't expect was the roar of laughter coming out of my mouth from the sheer joy of cranking on that throttle for the first time. Wow...

I was worried that the stock exhaust would sound too muted, but as the RPM,s built so did that beautiful sound and my smile.

I will enclose some pictues in the next couple of days. But thank you for letting me joing this exclusive group, what an experience today was!

Congrats!
I've had my Brut for just over 2 weeks, and still have perma-grin!

Hey brady280,

Congrats again, here is something I posted earlier for another new owner, hopefully you will find it useful:

FYI, I thought you might be interested... these 2 links has been posted here before:

As for breaking in new engines, I totally agree with the methods of mototuneusa above and this one also: http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/NewBike.html#BreakIn

As a dyno owner, I have seen the results of how engines perform with different types of break in methods.

The guys who baby their engines have lower power output and use some oil. The guys who get on the engine from day one have very strong engines.

Just yesterday I broke in (on the dyno) a brand new BMW K1200R for a guy who will be racing this bike . I used Mototunes method and he is very happy so far with the results.

Controversial subject for sure, but I see this stuff everyday.
