Email Lee or Brian and ask for a tour. They have been very supportive with getting back to the interested riders. I haven't talked with them in awhile, but they were pretty responsive when they were not on tour.

Visit with an open mind and you might be surprised with what you really see.

I just emailed them through their website. I will be in Birmingham tomorrow so that is extremely short notice. They likely won't even see the email before tomorrow and I said that in my email. Either way, I wish them the best.

I received two very nice personal emails from Lee. Unfortunately they had the day planned- as I expected. I'm impressed that he would get back to me so quickly. He seems very polite and professional. I look forward to seeing one for real some day. I love the LS series of engines that this is based off of. I've had one for 9 years and can tell you that old school pushrod engines can be just as fun as DOHC and other "high tech" bits.

Yeah...

...I saw the Morbidelli at Barber. I remember reading about it in the bike mags and thinking it was super cool.

When I saw the real thing at Barber, I thought it was one of the ugliest things i have ever seen.

The engine was beautiful, but the bike fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.
