Better going fast on a slow bike than going slow on a fast bike.

Actually, putting a turbo on it may be a hoot. AND don't make fun of my mass. The great Dusty Rhodes (wrastler extraodinaire) once opined at a March of Dimes event that "Once you go 300, you never go back". I ain't that big, but I ain't ever gonna be an under 200 man.

So the most fun is on a mini-bike with a 5 hp Briggs and Stratton? I think not...

More fun than a GL1800, that's for sure.

They should be available now. Moto Guzzi's US site lists them and I know one dealer up here outside Toronto has a couple. Note however that the North American versions have a black fuel tank instead of the chrome tank.
