    If we don't get some riding weather here soon, that's what my bike will look like.

    Don't worry, it's Italian so only 1 of them will work at a time.

    Interestingly enough, it's the only scooter with a 500 amp alternator! :evil

    All of these replies has made my day better. Just called my wife over to look at both the picture of the scooter and some of the replies. She laughed too.

    Thank you.

    I'll bet he did, several hundred times. :lol3

    Any of you familiar with The Who album Quadrophenia? That's simply a kitted out Mod scoot. How about the Continental kit on the back? :thumb

    Even if the alternator was large enough to feed all that....I wonder if the engine would have enough horsepower left to go anywhere!

    It's like a Harley chopper. It doesn't matter if it goes or not, you're just going to trailer it to the bike show so everyone can bask in its magnificence. Yep, an OCC scooter.

    Don't confuse GS riders, with Harley poseurs.

    Before I downsized...before I was a GS rider...I was SHOPPING for one. One thing I found...you could find a Harley used, discounted a few bucks, with 700 miles on it. Or you could find an airhead or oilhead GS...five years used, discounted a few bucks...with 40,000 miles on it!

    Harleys get trailered. GSs get RIDDEN. I put 21,000 on mine in three years, before my back caught up with me.
