I spent the weekend at the Sturgis SD motorcycle rally. :yo: I thought I would be the only Brutale there, but I did see another woman on what looked like a 750. The bike was definitely unique -- turned a lot of heads. Got lots of questions about my bike. Most people never heard of MV Agusta; granted this is a Harley crowd. I think the folks at MV owe me for word of mouth advertising.

There were other sportbikes at Sturgis, which was a nice surprise. The roads in the Black Hills of South Dakota are great for sportbikes. Sweeping twisties in the mountains, and long, fast, cop-free straightaways through the rest of the state.

The Brutale is more comfortable on long road trips than my sportbike. I wasn't affected by the high winds as my friend who was riding a Ninja 1400. Going 100 mph felt pretty comfortable. At 145 mph, tho, I felt like I was going to fly off the bike.

I'd go to Sturgis again. It's turned into a rally for everyone.

Cheers!

Very impressive, going to Sturgis on an MV! Not sure you'd win a lot of converts to MV among the Harley-Sturgis crowd, but hats off to you for doing the trip. And the Black Hills are fabulous......

YOU ROCK!!!! :yo:
As a multiple Harley owner (see signature), I absolutely love that you "crashed" Sturgis with the Brute! Sounds like they treated you okay, too. Generally, many H-Ders have a hard time spelling "MV".

Your 1400 Ninja friend also has great taste. Just got mine and it is the SCHIZZLE! (For you, Madman!)

I love 'em all, but MVs rule! Oh... and especially WOMEN on MVs!!
