    That's a CX100, the US version of the LeMans MkII. Non factory color. Undersung but excellent bike.

    There were maybe a half dozen of these babies at the rally. They all went for a ride at some point in the day, and I hovered nearby on my more modern Guzzi. To hear a squadron of these big thumpers humming along was awesome. :clap IIRC a few were ridden several hundred miles to the rally.

    I have that issue of CYCLE in my magazine archive (it also has a hop-up article for the Honda OHC 90).

    The issue of CYCLE either the previous or following month had a road test of the new BMW R75/5.

    The Goose out accelerates and has a higher top speed than the /5, for what it's worth.....

    That's it- I'm buying a Guzzi. I've resisted long enough. Maybe a T3 or an Eldo, nice riding position and oh that sound :nod

    I'm headed up to Oregon to get it out of storage next week. It's going to lose the fairing, and get lightly cafe'd. Should be on the road again very soon...

    Saw this nice lemon with a big tank in Queensland a few weeks back.

    I bought a V50 in the Channel Islands in the early 80's and rode around Europe, the Middle East and Nth Africa. What a sweet bike - it never let me down. Me with distant relos in Munich.
