Minneapolis IMS

Went to the Minneapolis IMS for work over the weekend.

Hot damn that Braveheart 919 is HOTTT. Bought 5 tickets!

My favorite bike at the show, that makes me want to sell a kidney and my 919:

You could have saved some $$. I already bought the winning ticket at the show in NYC. On second thought, the proceeds are for a worthy charity.

It's a '07 release here in the states and according to the general manager...just that 15 large is all thats holding me back at this point!

My buddy had a the Brutale 750. Nice looking bike and sounded like the Ferrari of motorcycles, but it was insanely small, and had more problems with the electrical than not. He couldn't let it sit for more than a few days with the battery dying. My Honda on the other hand started every time

Oh yeah, then he sold it and it totally died on the guy that bought it. I think it ended up getting the whole wiring harness ripped out, under warranty.

I absolutely adore the Brutale. The bike is the epitome of gorgeousness in naked bike form. Too bad it's a typical fickle Italian mistress. Oh, and the mileage is crap according to every review ever written. I need something that runs like a top and doesn't suck down premium like college chicks with wine coolers.
