My new Italian Mistress in all her glory. She was well worth the wait.
I graduated from the P's sentence in April of this year and started test riding a few bikes to decide what I wanted to upgrade to.
Saw the first 800rr unit that reached Sydney around that time as well and after a test ride on a standard 800 I knew I had connected to the Brutale. Tests on a S1000R and a SuperDuke basically confirmed that it was to be an MV.
I ordered her on the first of the Sydney MV ride days out at Pie in the Sky - timing wise we where building a new home and wanted the bike to arrive after completion etc...
Picked her up on the 7th of November and I've been smiling ever since.
