    Nice, that looks like a Dresda fairing. In 1976 I thought about a Le Mans but bought a 750 S3 instead.

    Here's my Ducati in Austria and up the Stelvio last Summer.

    I've had this about 6 weeks now.
    I just had to have a Ducati motor to learn about.
    This is a really well built machine.
    Right off the bat, new clutch, then new voltage regulator.
    Its a blast to ride, a super SuperMoto:

    That seat on the Guzzi doesn't look original.

    Andy, that's a gorgeous Futura. I think that my RSV will be my last sportsbike and next time, I will definitely look into a sport tourer. The Futura is definitely high on my list. Yours in black looks especially nice. So far, I have written the Honda VFR 800. I wonder how the Futura compares.

    Temptation in red and carbon fiber by vintagemxr, on Flickr

    Couldn't resist making a contribution here. From about 10 years ago, my Aprilia Falco. Gone after only owning it for a month as jail seemed imminent. I traded it for an '01 Caponord which, while not as sexy, was more suited to my lack of speed limit discipline.

    Well, it's that time of year again and in the spirit of the Holiday Season...

    Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from way up nearer the North Pole.

    And across town, my brother ADV inmate Luppo Rosso, celebrates with a decorated 748. :D

    His 3 daughters now insist he does this instead of a slightly more traditional tree. :wink:

    First scooter - this is going to be fun! It's adequately fast and pretty darn comfortable.

    Back in the fall of '82 I did up my 860GT in red and gold with an R90S replica fairing and Marzocchi Stradas. Can't figure out how to link pics from fb, so this is the best I can offer.
