Here's my new to me Brutale. It's a 2009 with very low mileage and a ton of extras! I could use a few tips on suspension as I am quite vertically challenged!!!

Beautiful bike.Personaly I would not lower the suspension.Just slide to one side or the other to put one foot down.If it scares you to do this on the Brutale worrying about dropping it I would ride some dirt bikes for awhile until I was comfortable stopping with one foot down.Not many people can flatfoot dirtbikes.

Welcome June

Awesome bike. Hope you enjoy your time on the forum, have a look around there is quite a few guys who have lowered the bikes for obvious reasons, it is not such a big issue unless you are racing the thing. It will affect the handling but you can still find a good balance without any problems, as long as you drop the front and back by the same amounts.

Congratulations on the major score! I lived in Colorado for almost 10 years & loved it. Sure wish I was there to enjoy my Brute on the mountain roads, but I can't complain with a 12 month riding season either! Well then again we do have to deal with Love-Bug season twice a year here!
Cheers,
Glenn

@noneyet, Colorado is a spectacular place to ride. I've logged thousands of miles in the canyons and never get tired of the view. The twisties are spectacular! If you have not ridden out here put it on your bucket list and look me up.

@Gem STate St, I know the physics of rake and trail, and so on. I've been riding it as is, and the ride is ideal until I need to stop. Uneven pavement, uphill at the top of a steep offramp with a semi behind you can be unnerving. Here in Colorado we have STM Suspension, and Dave Rose, the god of setting up bikes for the rider. The bulk of the MRA circuit uses him. I have an appointment for him to look at my baby on Monday. I do not want to screw with the dynamics if I am going to lose the current riding characteristics of the bike. It tips in to the corners like a dream...and I have lots of corners ;) I've been riding a 2007 CBR 600RR that was lowered a lot, in fact I'm flat foot. I agree that stability is decreased on the bike due to that, but at the same time it hasn't fallen over on me. I won't bring my MV down much, just enough to get a toe down.

@Everyone else, thanks so much for the warm welcome!!!! For those of you inquiring about the spare parts, I am selling the stock parts only. You can't have my carbon fiber or my corbin seat. The rest can go. I'm contemplating going back to the stock mirrors if someone wants the Arrow's.

We're about an hour from Broomfield, in SW Denver right on the "hog back". She's close enough to the foothills to know that "7 is heaven" feeling. We have snow above 7000 ft. already, but I'm sure it will melt soon enough. We rode all last winter and plan to do so this year too.
Some people have "rock skis" I have a CBR with heated grips if roads get cold or dirty.
