I swear Moto Guzzi takes the cake when it comes to cool looking motorcycles, nothing else even comes close. Even Davida Girl chooses an old MG to bless with her backside.....

Any bike that looks like this needs enough power to demand a second front disc. Unless it's a Buell - may they RIP.

47 horsepower, but who cares? This bike is the spitting image of a pretty famous V7 custom called "Big Red." They did an article on it in Classic Bike. Love the wrapped exhausts; nothing says "Hawt Rawd" like asbestos tape!

It's more fun to go fast on a slow bike than to go slow on a fast bike. Something like this would be pretty nice for the mountain roads near me with 70mph impound speed limits and the 2000 ft drops.

You know, that was the fun of my short lived Thruxton a few years back. It was a perfect bike for the tight twisty back roads around here and a perfect counterpoint to my Trophy.

They impound for doubling the speed limit. The nearer canyons have all been reposted to 35 in recent years and double yellow lines painted everywhere. If I haed out about 25 miles there are some 45-55 mph twisties where it's not so critical. But the cliffs are still there.
