    Wayne, just stick your motor in a quad, or add a sidecar and you're good to go! I'm going with the ultimate BIG V-Twin. Almost no rules on the sidecars, and it's still near impossible to finish. Very difficult, the way I like it! Yes, it's real expensive. It's gonna cost us over $50,000, not counting the bike. I'm also a bit surprised about the rules change, but fortunately it didn't affect us.

    I just think they oughta make an exception to Meoni, he earned it. For the guy-watching-at-home-entertainment factor.

    How True!! And the more the merrier, especially if you've got a lot of variety between the machines..
    Personally, I think the should get rid of those quads

    Very interesting news Mateo, did you happen to notice any body work changes at intermot? I'm currently without a 950 but will be buying again next year and I'm working on custom painting body panels for my new bike to make it look like a Rally bike, any input is appreciated.

    the real reason is to head off Guzzi from developing the new quota, fear of domination by a single brand from the lake como boys :1drink
