Humble hello from a longtime lurker

Posting from San Diego

I've been riding for about 12 years, nearly 4 of them (damn time flies) on an MV Agusta Brutale 750 S (2004).

Bit about me: I'm in my early 30's, a bit of a nerd who likes well made machines, cars, motorcycles, etc; tend to be a bit of a smart ass with a odd sense of humor. On the taller side and probably heavier than I should be for what I'm riding.

First got into riding when I was 20, to do adventure riding, and I fell in love with it. I haven't done as many tours as I'd like the last couple years, and always looking for interesting routes.

I've done some work on my own bike, mostly taken it to a shop/Italian specialty dealer, usually scouring these forums for things to do myself...and I'll probably be asking for expertise pretty soon, I just hit 36k miles on my bike.

Welcome senoir, you sound a bit like myself albeit 20 years ago... I sold my 04 brute after owning from new and after a couple of bikeless years decided the tv was for me... a few mods later and I'm very happy with her.
If you get an opportunity to test ride one it's a fantastic move up from the early days but whatever floats ur boat, check out my vinyl and hifi collx 💥👍
Good luck

That we have, but honestly as someone born and raised here, it's one of my favorite times of the year (nice to breath slightly cleaner air, even for just a few days).

Pardon my ignorance, what do you mean by tv?

And I love my Brutale, and currently (think) I've still got more miles to put on it before I give it up...think I have an oil leak at the front of the engine -_- so it's my current project.
Just did a coolant flush (drained the old coolant, ran distilled water through twice, and put in some fresh pink Agip in).
