Just wanted to say "hello" from a new brute owner. I have been and still own a honda for as long as I have been riding atv's but I now own a Kaw. as well. I have to say it took me a few years to get this bike, I kicked alot of tires and sat on a lot of seats. I hope I made the right choice, I have only had it a couple days. I will say the bike is crazy powerful. I almost lost myself off the seat last night. I just gave the throttle a little push and all hell broke loose. I can't begin to imagine the power these things have. I think I'm in love!!
