The Street Rod is an interesting bike. I sort of like it. I'm not really one for forward controls, so that one ticks a couple of boxes on the plus side for me. I'd like to ride one some day to see how it really feels.

It is an intersting bike. A little bit on the long side but handles better than the spec sheet would suggest. I wa son a HD Demo ride so we kept under the speed limit as well as I had to contend with a bunch of wanna be's on Slushtails slowing to 10 for a few specs of gravel in the corners. Never seen so many shitty riders. UGH!

I digress.....the best way to describe it would to try and make a road racer out of a limo.

Why can't Guzzi ever get that original V7 / Eldo formula right again? It is possible in modern bikes? Or is the problem that it would not sell as it's not sexy enough as a "standard" ? They seem to keep trying but screw it up in the end with yet another themed styling exercise: Cali cruiser, cafe racer, adv tourer, lowboy cruiser, ---repeat ---> ....

Looks like a really fun bike, but from a styling perspective, I don't understand why designers want to draw more attention to radiators with big, colourful shrouds or shiny, chrome finishes.
