It'd be a great excuse to get that silk scarf and waxed Belstaff Roadmaster I always wanted too.

Admittedly, I wouldn't look near as good on it.

I have learned that it is best not to worry how you look. Just assume you look how you imagine, and steer clear of shop windows and mirrors.

Reality we can get any time. Don't mess with the fantasy, man.

And don't forget that Aerostitch has those sumptuous and delicious looking falstaff wax cotton jackets now.

Just the thing for the retro bikes.

Or get yerself a jen-yoo-wine Irvin fighter pilot jacket.



Only a thousand bucks or a bit more. Get a pipe, too. And a handlebar moustache.

Your sexual fantasies are no concern of mine.

Not a fan of Egan, but those other guys were hard core dudes.

Really? His column in the latest Cycle World about changing his oil was pretty dern funny. I don't know him on a personal level at all, could be a major prick fer all I know, but his writing is reasonably entertaining. I enjoy that other guy too. What the hell is his name? Older guy, writes for Rider - damn Google's no help.

I still think the Bonneville looks better, but the Guzzi is certainly some good eye candy.

From what I understand, Egan is a straight up and good guy, but his writing is too much "look how great my life is and how many bikes I have - I'm fabbo". I just can't bear it.

Dunno who the other guy is - Clement Salvadiddly? Wears a beret - so he's obviously french and / or a mime, and not to be trusted.
