Well I'm not a Brammo employee and I haven't signed any NDA...so I feel I can talk about anything...
Of course it would be silly to piss off Brammo
I went to Laguna Seca hoping to either bring back my Plus...or maybe an Empulse IF I was the BrammoEvangelista...figure I have a 30 percent chance of that...(edit: i thought I had zero chance as I figured BrammoFan would win it again for all his work...but they don't want repeat winners...so my chances grew somewhat)
But: a) Brammo did not have my plus and B) Brammo did not announce the Evangelista at Seca (likely Miller? And if revealed at Miller, well my chances go way down and a certain somebody who will be at Miller, well I imagine his chances go way up
So...nobody asked for the loaner back (edit. Adrian made a comment about putting the Green Enertia on the Truck before they left, but nobody went to do it...so I'm keeping it a while longer....leaving it with them actually makes lots of sense...at the same time, they were leaving from Seca and I had no way back to my Motel in Salinas if they took the Enertia with them), and I still had some photos and video I wanted to do (edit: and I'm glad I kept it as Vegas at Dusk and the Hoover Dam the next day are some of my favortie photos...and I would have missed those had I left the E with them)...so the loaner came back to New Mexico with me.
It I had been smarter, I would have asked if Brammo would take back the Green Classic and let me ride the black engineering bike (a true plus) until the Pluses come in...
But smart ain't my strong point.
I did let Brammo know that I would be happy to be a Beta Tester for any and all of their bikes.
They know I: will put many miles on them in all weather and conditions, will take tons of photos and such, will talk endless to people about them and will write and post a lot. (edit: the downside for Brammo is that I would be a Beta Tester many many many miles away from Ashland.)
We will see where it all goes from here.
