    This is my 1997 Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport, which was painted by the factory in a black metallic paint. This bikes paint looks more bronze than black when the light hits the bike in an angle.

    I should have held out on the Twin and gotten the Bobber. I've loved that bike since it came out.

    They are both nice bikes , the Street Twin is one I love too. Certainly a bit more practical than the Bobber. I'm working on making mine bit more practical , to the disgust and dismay of many. But I enjoy it in its raw form as well. Just , at times , you need to be able to carry more than just your wallet. :D

    Yeah, I have an old tank bag I throw on the Twin if I need a little more carrying capacity, mostly for when I do longer rides. If I'm taking a passenger or a longer trip, that's why I have the Tiger.

    Still, it's a gorgeous looking machine. The thing that does it for me is the drag bars and the fat front tire. Those are the two things I lust after. If I can get a wider front on the twin, I'd like to do it, but I know it'll require a bit more than what I could find out of a catalogue.

    I need to buy me a better camera one day, since the iPhone does take pretty good pictures, but a good camera captures the details and depth so much better. Either way, the pictures below show of the different color changes depending upon the light and view angle pretty good.

    This pic says a lot without saying but “1” thing. Just about 400 miles shy of 100,000 miles that I have put on it since I bought it, it had 11,500 on it when I took possession of it. That was done in 3 years and 1 month, excluding 4 months of down time with my broken knee. So in the time I’ve had it, it has gone thru 7 front tires and 8 or 9 rear tires, oil changes (full synthetic), and only one trip to the shop for the brake recall. It has never failed to start, I’ve ridden as cold as 9 degrees and as hot as 118. There are no down months for riding here in North Texas. I love my 2006 Goldwing (AKA: the BlackBird) It has been as far north as the Arctic Circle and as far south as Caracuaro , Michocan MX. Miles pic is from today and the bike pic is from 2 days ago.
