      I was in the Savage forums also... Last draw was when we where downtown Chicago on 4th of July for the fireworks and the shifter linkage broke crossing Michigan Ave- very busy street ! It was stuck in 1st gear and you try to get help at midnite on a holiday where everyone is either drunk or away camping ! I got a new shifter rod and few weeks later the carb vent tube somehow was clogged and cause gas to flow out all over her leg at yet another busy road ! I tried to get the trans to shift right many times but 5th was a hit n miss many times... That was my last Suzuki. Bike was a 96 from what I remember and it had just 3k miles when I bought it for her. Racked up 3k miles that season, and I always rode with spare parts for it in my backpack. My Kawi, Hondas and now BMW have been virtually bullet proof. All of em got many miles on them and Kawi was a learner bike for many of my friends. 01 ZX6R great starter bike

      Nice ! Is that an S4R ? How do the two stack up ? Looked into a S4R before I got my K bike but only one was around and it was thrashed hard and asking stupid cash for it. I don't like buying bikes sight unseen aka eBay

      No radiators...it's an S2R (1000 based on his info).

      It's like MV day up in here. Nice Brutale.

      Yep it is an S2R 1000. My screen name is from a few years ago when I had a Desmoquattro S4R. The Brutale is a LOT more powerful than the S2R1K. It also makes it's power above 6k rpm where the Ducati is getting close to it's limiter. The Brutale gets really hot riding around town though and it's very cramped. The throttle is also a lot more snatchy when going on/off throttle. For stop and go or normal city riding I much prefer the air cooled Monster to be honest... but the Brutale is a beast. If you have some good twisty roads with some nice straights it is scary fast.

      Looks are subjective but I think the Brutale is the 2nd best looking bike on the market... the 1st being the F4. The craftmanship on MV's is second to none. Even the welds on the swingarm look artfully crafted. The MV makes the Ducati feel "ordinary" when you're riding it. I love both bikes though and they are great for different reasons. I've always been a Duc fan and the air cooled desmodromic L-twin rumble with the full Arrow exhaust is one of the most pleasing sounds to my ears.

      It was a shame that the local dealer stopped carrying them. Their slogan "Moving Art" is dead-on, like you said, all the details are beautifully crafted and designed.

      If Ducati is like "Ferrari," then MV is like "Maserati"--the best looking machines on the planet.

      FTFY.

      There are LOTS of good roads in Illinois. Its just that none of them are in Cook County. The Illinois river valley has a lot of good ones and the Galena area is nothing short of epic.

      I agree it's just that it takes a few hours to get out there :/ Galena is nice, did it on my RC51 last time with my wife pacing me on her Savage.

      Gonna try out Starved Rock after work tomorrow maybe... It's been a while since I've been that way.

      Cook/Dupage is boring
