Yes, I went to see Fran after 3 years of delivery of my P4. It just so happened to be the coldest week in history in the area. I drove from Dallas to Detroit via Indianapolis and most of the roads were littered with cars and trucks of yahoo's that don't know how to drive. you could measure the distance between the wipeouts in feet. At one point I was parked for 3 hours waiting for the road to be cleared of an accident. Almost solid ice up to Michigan. Fortunately I had my F250 with 4x4 and had no problems except it was so cold the starter froze overnite.
Fran was graceious enought to pick me up from the hotel and showed off the new diggs. If you are wanting your eyes to pop from your head, This is better than going to Goodwood, well all most. I can tease Alex about his 917, but Fran said no pics, so Alex, sorry, blame Fran. Saw the Apex got some shots of that. Very interesting LMP1, you can use a corvette transaxle. I can see that in my garage, but I saw something else that you can terrorize Fran about that I would mind dropping a down payment on. SLCs are everywhere! And Bikes! Oh if I was younger! Sorry boys no Test Drives. Are you kidding me! And for those that think Fran won't speak to you, You just don't know Fran. The man is busier than a bartender at happy hour with 10cent beer.
Thanks Fran for the memories the info and the Parts. As for anybody that is looking at getting a Kit to build, You MUST check out RCR.
And if you want pics you have to ask nicely.

Fran's new facility is first class! the stories behind all the cars sitting in there is mind boogling and Fran will take the time to explain each one of them. I even got to see the "secret" room! take care my friend and keep up the great work. can't wait to see the new wide body (you know what) when it's totally finished!

Caveat If you think you see your car your wrong. Names were not on any thing and I have no clue to the when your car is ready. I just saw a lot of cool stuff. If you want to know, do what I did and go and see the digs.
 
Thanks for posting, Marc! What's to the right of the Apex in the pic showing the Apex's rear? It's got Super wide flares and I like that :thumbsup:

Buy the larger displacement Brutale..mine is an early 750....lots of rpm all the time , like riding a GSXR750 which is great if you want a full on sportbike but tough as a daily...I really enjoy the bike but not a daily for me.
I really like a twin as a daily rider....I ride a big pig of a GS BMW as a daily most of the time and I love it...I sit high and have great visibility , plus others can see me too, wide bars make it easy in traffic too...If I want to go fast I can hop on one of the others.

Thanks for the info. Looking to get a 910 myself. I used to have a GSXR750 and that was fun, but this is more of a daily driver around town fun. I like the sound of inline 4's and upright position more so the Brutale really seems to fit the bill, plus single side swingarm and all and it sure looks sexy for that type of bike. Plus Italian and rare.

If you ever want to sell the mv 750 at a good price let me know.
