Good morning everyone, my name is Mike and I am from Connecticut.I am proud new MV owner. I just bought a 2013 Brutale to use as a track bike. I am a former road racer turned track day instructor. I am not new to Italian bikes.. I have had a few Ducati's and my street bike is a multistrada. I am looking forward to making this MV alittle more trackable. I just bought race tires and looking to ditch the street stuff. Why not get a F4 you ask? Clip ons bother my shoulders after a few hours of instructing and always looking over your shoulder for students. Can't wait to learn more about these wonderful machine's.
