Hello I just thought that I would say hello to you forum folks. I had been looking at a new 2010 Brutale 1090 RR sitting at Calif. Speedsports in Livermore for about a year. I had also been reading this forum for the same amount of time. Then on October 25th, things worked out financially and my wife said go ahead. I didn't ask twice. I love this bike. I also have an 07 Aprilia Tuono and the Brutale handles/looks better. I have only put about 400 miles on it as I am still recovering from a little knee surgery. I have put a CF rear hugger on it but little else. I had a mirror fall out that CSS is replacing under warrenty. I am very happy with them (Kerg). I do worry about the rear hub but as I understand it, Mitch is adapting his hub to fit the 2010 and up. Anyway you folks seem great and the bike is outstanding.
