I've got that right now!



Although usually when I ride the geezer I make sure I'm clean-shaven so I don't get mistaken for a "Harley guy."

I agree. Maybe it will be "worth something" someday.



Based on this man's age he will likely be dead when that happens. I would not want to go to my grave knowing I never rode that thing.

But aren't you a "Harley guy?"

Yeah, I can't imagine not running it regardless of how much it is worth.

I'm jealous. That must have been cool as all get out. In the mid-80s you would have had the then-dominant Porsche 962 series cars. Awesome.



I think GTP was actually the successor to CanAm, via some convoluted meanderings, and some of the tech is neat.



Nothing beats CanAm, though. 1,500HP Porsches, variable-wing McLarens - an explosion of creativity in engineering before the safetycrats sanitized everything.

I think the short cut-offs with leather chaps and cowboy boots give him away....

What kind of motorcyclist would have a V8 Moto Guzzi race bike and not even start it, let alone ride it.

maladg,



Here is my 4 step program for you to rejoin the human race:



1) Take the "motorcycle vroom vroom noises" CD out of the stereo, smash it into pieces and scream, "I WILL get a life!" as loud as you can.

2) Go get yourself some Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, or whatever Buzz is popping these days.

3) Find a female, preferably of the genus Homo Sapiens

4) Do what Buzz's preferred magic ****tail tells your medial amygdala to do

5) Move out of your Mom's basement





You're welcome,



EBass

I'd have to ride it, I couldn't own a bike like that with out letting it wail. The worst thing to happen would be if you wadded it, and it would still be cool sitting in the corner of you front room all scuffed up.



The guys a dillitant rich guy, Standing outside looking in.
