GREAT BIKE

What can I say. An excellent bike.
By Anthony(Owner), Jun. 22, 2010
I've only had it a week, but am in love with this bike. I picked up this bike at British Italian Motorcycle in Vancouver, BC. For an excellent price even by American standards.



Heads turn and I get complements about it all the time. The first time I stopped to get gas, a woman came over and tal... Read Full Review
