Picked up the orange '08 last week.

Drove down to Matison's in Raleigh, N.C. and picked up the orange Brut last week. Took the wife with me and spent New Year's in Ashville, touring the Biltmore Estate.

For some reason, the '08 seems to run better and has a deeper sound than my '06....and I'm wondering if it isn't just my imagination.

Oh, and I will be selling my Corse Exhaust complete with EProm.

I like that Orange Brutale....keep the Corse pipes...get that new fully accessible ECU just available and let her rip.

How did you and your bride enjoy the Biltmore Estates? Happy new Year and congrats on the gorgeous new bike.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Congrats on the new bike! Looking forward to seeing some pictures.

You should probably update your entry in the registry, especially the part about never buying another Brutale

07 White/Black F4 1000R -- SOLD
04 Matte Black Brutale S -- SOLD

Esq'z...The Biltmore is the shiznits! Oppulance out the

wazoo, excess that would make the Taliban hate us even more.

I can't imagine 40 full-time servants attending to your every need, but hey....I'd be willing to try living like that for awhile.

And those roads leading to the house and barns....ideal for a Sunday ride on the Ducati or Brut.

Email me more info on the new ECU.

This one DJester spotted:

Looks very interesting, especially since it appears to include access to all functions for tuning.

Congrats on the new purchase. The orange is beautiful, and rare in the states (only 25-30 I read). Post some pics of your "bad girl"...

8 mile trip around the grounds at Biltmore!!! They would go on fox hunts and be gone for 2 weeks!!!! and still be on the property!! That place is really nice, I couldn't imagine it back then.... even the horse stables were immaculate!!! Very nice place, a must see

That house is freaking huge!! and I couldn't even think of how much the rugs would cost, the library with the mural on the ceiling!!!! and the books.... that place has a lot of money in funiture and such. Too bad they won't let camera's in

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead
