Very nice. Thanks for posting. Good to know I'm not the only one who has owned the same make and model more than once (TransAlp, Thunderbird Sport)!

I don't think I've posted a picture of my Panigale yet. Here she is on our first ride home together, somewhere between Santa Barbara and Berkeley.

I like the looks of that.....One fine sexy beast you have there...... I have an 11 model Norge. Gotta love the Guzzi styling and an organized and uncluttered garage. Almost goes against the man card rules but it does look great. One of these days I'll have to post a pic of mine...

Is that a Yamaha Vision fairing in the LMIII? Looks pretty good- with the design complimenting the angular lines of the bike.

Yes.

Harper's in Missouri converted the 1983 LeMans III when it was new, with new Yamaha parts.

It looks factory. Curtis and Mike did a real nice job on it. My friend, John, bought it from Harper's this year. It had been one of thier personal "shop bikes" since new.

Thanks. I was pretty intimately involved with Guzzis a while back, but if I ever saw that bike I'd forgotten about it.
