|I bought my first MV Agusta (also a
Brutale) in summer of 2004 and lovingly

|Yes, this bike was once on the cover of the Robb Report, and it's even better now.
|The stock mirrors had to go, and the original bars had solid ends which wouldn't allow me to run the
mirrors and signals I wanted, so I added Rizoma Conical handlebars.
We drilled a small hole in the bars and ran the wiring for the always bright and amazing Oberon Bar End
Turn Signals, which we mounted using their Bar End Mirror Adapters, and finally capped off with the
CRG Arrow Bar End Mirrors.
She already had a Scotts Steering Damper (a welcome addition), but the stock levers, master cylinders,
and Throttle left much to be desired.
Which means I had to do something about that...
We added MotoCorse Reservoir Covers, and Adjustable Folding Levers, then I went to work on the
throttle, which after adjustment, and even swapping the internal cam gear was still disappointing to me.
Thankfully the Domino XM2 Race Throttle with Cables solved my problem, and honestly, may have been
the single best upgrade to this Brutale, as the throttle is now much smoother than it ever was before.
|That's just me and her in the Sierra Nevada mountains at around 9,000 ft, on my first day of ownership.
This is a unique situation, as we usually completely build our bikes from nothing, but this Brutale was
clearly equipped with some of the best parts available before I purchased her.
Luckily for me, she wasn't finished, and I was just the man to finish the job.

|This is how she looked when I picked her up. Not a bad starting point eh?
|Next I had to finish the aesthetic mods, as the prior owners built it well enough to
cover a Robb Report magazine, but didn't even get rid of the big ugly plastic original
turn signals and rear fender.
Ready, here we go:
