Only 17 years here, I have a few more years of pain/frustration left before I catch up to you.

Looking forward to it

after I got bit by a friends Z50, learned to ride a CB125, and then became totally cool in 1975 with a puce green CB550four chopper (I wish I was joking), I was stricken down by an endless procession of Norton Commandos. That was a horrible 6 years of pain and heartache. So when compared to British craftmanship and engineering, the Italians were immediatly percieved as sexy and smart. I've been on a constant quest for likeminded individuals ever since.

Oh, and when pressed hard, I will concede the superior logic and maunufacturing of the Germans and the Austrians. It just seems that the only people on the planet who really understand a red paint job, live on the boot.

They seem to forget how to do it...

Guzzi made this, it was 20 years ago, but I think it would still be ok today:




40 Litres of fuel (900+ KM fuel range), 30 cm ground clearance, 85 HP, 200 KG, 200 KPH - All tested!

It still works for me...if only Guzzi would put it into production...

I still miss my spindly legged 850T-lawnmower battery and all. I'd buy one simply because it is different and a Guzzi. Looks like a GS competitor.
