Ciao

My boppin' around town bike. I love this bike like I love stuffed cannelloni, a bottle of Barolo, and Sabrina Ferilli.

(Hey, Sabrina. If you're out there, what do you say we fill a bota up, take a ride up to the mountains, and chill sometime? I have a pad for the back fender... call me.)

Memorial Day trip to ME. Enjoyed a great home style lunch at the Appalachian Cafe in Millinocket. Looks like the town is picking up the grime from my bike. That's not my oil on the ground, is it?
41,000 miles, wish I had more time to ride!

Wink bellagios are beautiful, and so are you

"Drove bike from L.A. to NH. No problems.............. Heading up to Nova Scotia one weekend and voltage regulator fries, totalling bike. Love those Italian electrics.................."

the quirks, peculiarities* and 'shortcomings,' in concert with the at-times stunning aesthetics are what make a well-done moto guzzi a moto guzzi. taken together, these characteristics almost portray the bike more as an organic object, and less a mechanical one. not unlike people: inherently flawed devices, far from perfection, but beautiful in their design and in no way less interesting than more efficient and predictable modalities of mechanics.

i drive motorcycles for recreation, so the right combination of 'quirks,' 'peculiarities' and (the elusively-defined) 'character' can speak rather for a bike/make and not against it. i do not ride professionally, nor do i race, and as a result i do not view motorcycles as trade tools to be used purely for their functionality. i don't want the motorcycle to be 'transparent' when i'm riding it, and guzzis are in my experience anything but transparent machines -- viva le imperfezioni.

cheers

*Such as cylinder heat. From a motorcycle.com shootout review: "...We all experienced heat in one way or another from [the other] Twins in the breeze, but because of the Guzzi's cylinders proximity to the rider's knees, the heat emanating from this bike seemed exaggerated..."

I would love a Bellagio if it had the 1200cc 4v motor!
