Yeah, I can't change that because that's me and I uploaded them. If you click on them, you'll see your name in the box below.

Has anyone ridden a 125cc or 150cc for daily transportation anywhere but back roads? I feel sometimes my 500cc is dangerous in traffic

I ride a Gilera Giubileo 124 SS daily. It is tremendously slow, but I can keep up with traffic on surface streets. 3 1/2 gallons of fuel will last a month. Mechanically rock solid.

That MV is achingly beautiful. I wished to death I could have bought it on ebay, but at this stage in life it's just not possible. I know it's tiny and only makes a handful of ponies, but man it must be fun. And I'll say it again, it's beautiful. Just such a clean design. This particular one is perfect as it appears unrestored and slightly patina.
Looks like someone got it though!

BTW whoever took the pictures for the auction did a great job.

Guzzi a'la fresca in Italia

I took this picture outside of a cafe in Urbania. A small town in the state of Marche in the montains. Near where Valentino Rossi grew up.

I put a little over 100 miles on this down at the vintage bike fest at Barber.



I was surprised how well it ran, it only had about 15 miles on it when I loaded it on the trailer so I wasn't sure just how it'd work. Even managed to get by a few big twins and some British looking thing on the way to and from the track...

There was a heated competition for "The Most Italian Sounding Motorcycle" at this falls Italian Motofest in WV.

It was the orange framed Ducati single that took first place. All I can say is good thing I adjusted the valves on the Benelli before before going!

I really enjoy this thread and always hope for new additions.

DesmoDog: had not seen your thread on the rebuild. What a spectacular effort!

Saw your bike on display at Ducstock, looked good.

Not to nitpick, but that is a shot of some of the bikes in the 1960 -1969 section of the bike show in the Ducstock area. The sparkly Scrambler won it's class. It's a very nice looking bike!

Thanks for the comments on my Monza Jr. It was a lot of fun to build and have it down there. I've still got work to do on it but IMHO the initial outing was quite succesful.
