I saw the Big Brute that year out in front of Silver Legacy. The guy that was on it wanted to impress me (I was riding my Boss Hoss) so he started up the Brute and did a standing still (with the front brake on) burn out. About 1/2 way thro the burn out the Cops walked up and wanted to know if he wanted to go to jail.I was in Reno at the rally in Sept 2001 with a Big Brute that I left there with Clark Williford after,,,maybe it was me you saw there Aldo???
You are right...we did meet in Rapid City...
It is really nice to see a Big Brute on the road. I beleive there were less than 15 ever made and I bought and sold 3 of them...all to the US.
Tranny ever give you any grief??
Matt...Vic had told me he was working on the DOT for Canada and US when I signed up as Western Canadian Rep but I don't think he ever started the process.
Maybe talk to Jeff H./ Doc Joe on the board. You'd be closer to Jeff anyways...I asked Vic to make me a longer one with a wheele bar built into it. I wanted a place (still do) to store a larger battery. Thought about putting inside a parachute box. The bike is so far from practical anyway, why not? I also have two large nos bottles I would mount on it. Vic turned me down. Said he was too busy.
