Why is Kpaul not touching this one?

I think you've got a shot. Aresenio Hall had one for years. You've got to be better than him.



I think Seruzawa would make an excellent sidekick. Sarnali could do the man-in-the-street stuff.



And the crowning touch/dramatic tension/comic foil: You're band leader is the Great Motorcycle Prophet himself, Kpaul.



I would pay to see that. A lot.

Guzzi used to be a major GP competitor. They once ran a 500cc V-8.

Default Bravissimo!

I loved this article! You guys showcased a lot of my favorite motorcycles here. The best part of MO is it's variety. You guys go from "Here's EBass tooling through the countryside on a Hardley-Movingson", to "Here's a collection of Ducks, Gooseys, and MV Agustas!" Keep us guessing guys, I love it.

I recently spent a few days at the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham Alabama and exhausted a great deal of time in George's Vintage Motorsports Museum. The sheer number of Agustas on display and other significant motorcycles and racebikes covering the last 100+ years is breathtaking. The interior building architecture and displays combine to form an unforgettable experience to anyone who appreciates motorcycles or art. Immense glass walls provide a view of the beautiful Barber track grounds below. A must see. The highly technical track is awesome on 2-wheels or four. A must ride.

I just got back from a day watching WMRRA races, A guy had a 'guzzi in the vintage class that looked and sounded great.

There was also a nice Norton twin and what I think was a Rickman framed Triumph, way cool. Lots of neat old Honda 305's and 160's and a water cooled Suzuki triple as well.

For those of you in the northeast, don't miss European Motorcycle Day at the Museum of Transportation in Brookline, Mass. This year it is on Sunday, October 10. That late in the year in New England is often cool and damp so it brings out the hard cores. There's usually everything from Bimotas and BSAs to Velocettes and Vincents and a lot of Guzzis and Ducatis.

Now I hope you younger folks can see why we older guys complain when Ducati puts out something like the 999.

Ah yes! The Larz Anderson Classic! I go because I like to get rained on at least once a year (Why does it always rain that day?) Seriously though, it is a great show with lots of exotic machinery you don't see anywhere else. Last year BMW, Aprilia and Moto-Guzzi brought demo bikes with them for test rides. I took a V1100 Balabio (sp?) for a spin. Almost wadded it up when it started pouring during the demo and I was riding an unfamiliar bike in the rain on unfamiliar leave-covered wet streets. Scary.....
