Hello, newbee from Brisbane Aust

Hi Guys,
Have been riding for over thirty years. Have a few bikes in the shed. Guzzi Calli 3, MV Brutale, CB900F (919 in US) and the wife's Z1000. As you can see we dig bikes.

It was the Honda that made me find your forum. It is a '05 I brought about 5 years ago for a commute to work. Has been a very reliable bike and I have enjoyed it greatly. Been having some issues with it lately which lead me to this forum (with the aid of Google)

Looking forward to conversing with the collective. Seems like friendly knowledgeable lot of bike nuts.

Hi Rob welcome aboard. You know its customary to allow people on the forum to ride your bikes if they visit you country. Dibs on the Brutale when I come down next year. Lol

Ha ha, No chance. Unless you turn up with a new BMW S1000R ;-)

The Brutale is probably the most aptly named bike on the market. Quick, light and nimble and with MV's legendary fueling can be a real handful at times. The new models have improved a hell of a lot but it can still be a pig in traffic and uses more fuel that my SUV. However, when you get it in the hills and give it a handfull in the twisties you will split your head open grinning. It all of a sudden makes sense. Oh, and they are the equivalent of motorcycle porn to look at.

That is why the Honda has been relegated to work commuter.
