Hi everyone!

Hi! I`m ōyvind, 34 from Norway, I`ve been riding an MV Agusta Brutale for about three years now. Last week I went to a local bike-store, and there it was. A blue GSXS Long story short, I`m picking it up on friday, and leaving my dear MV at the store

Haven`t tried it :-D I`m sure I will miss my brutie, but it was to expensive to have, with at least one service a year that costs around 1200-1500 usd. Way to much for a ten year old bike..

I admire your balls in buying a bike without riding. You're right on the MV servicing though, that's mental prices.

Welcome! I agree with ackack, if it wasn't for the test ride I would have made the mistake of buying a Z1000SX!

I was a bit worried that it would be a boring bike compared to the MV, but after reading a lot about it, and YouTube, I'm not Since the bike came so late here, it was only one demo bike in Norway, unfortunatly it got wrecked in a roundabout the first day.. The dealer is sure the bike will go up in price next year, and the MV is soon up for a big service. So it was a no-brainer :-)
