Still enjoy this bike

Preaching to the choir I know butt.... I've had my 04 750 since 2005, I don't put a lot of miles on it but I've always liked it for shorter blasts. I've always had a BMW GS for my commuting practical bike, very well rounded capible bike. The last 6 years I had a Ducati hypermotard 1100s as well, liked it a lot but traded it for a new 2018 Ducati supersport and love it. The weird thing is that it seems the 3 bikes I have now compliment each other better. I've been seeing my brutale in a new light lately, yes it's the oldest but also the rawest by comparison. No safety net.....been enjoying wringing it's neck a little more.

I'm sure there's other out there that have felt the same?

Love my 910R.... I got a 2018 Suzuki GSX-S750 when I retired. Really nice bike. Handles good, great brakes, smooth engine, goes as fast as any sane person could want on public roads, comfortable.....

But I'm selling it.

Don't ride it.

Rather ride Gina.

Same here. I ride the Motus probably 85% of the time (I have 4 bikes), but the 2004 Brutale if I want something light, and flick able to ride.
I recently installed a full titanium exhaust, I did it mostly for the weight savings (about half the weight of a stock exhaust), but wasnít expecting what I got. It changed the personality of the bike. Itís LOUD, and feels like it revs faster. Itís such a hoot to ride. The power from the 750 is just right for me, Iíve slowed down quite a bit from 20 years ago.
The F4 Mamba on the other hand, scares the sót out of me every time I ride it. In fact itíll be for sale soon.
