    I quite liked the look of this Starck design when it came out in about 2000.

    I went to the display at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art yesterday and they had one there, it does look better in the flesh, but still strange.

    And when I first saw that horrible non step through I thought of the 6.5 straight away.

    Oh and the bike display was pretty good, the highlight for me was standing in front of the Britten. It was the closest thing to a religious experience I have ever had. Almost teared up standing in it's vicinity.

    Never thought I would see one in the flesh...

    I sat on the Britten model before that one which wasn't in the museum at the time so I'm really looking forward to this exhibition .

    There's a Britten in Te Papa, the Wellington museum ... not that far away.
    I understand the sentiment - my family thought I was a raving lunatic how I reacted to it.

    Cheers - Gavin

    From one of the truly Great Moto journo's ever. (RIP)

    Needs more heat in the front tyre, according to the cable tie there is a bit more travel unused. Once you load the front tyre some more you will need sag and damping adjustments.
    Nice bike :-)

    I do love Guzzi but other airheads have appeal.
    For full disclosure I was damaged at the 1989 IOM by a 500 Kompressor and a six cylinder 250.
    BTW that V8 Gutsy container still hasn’t shown up :-)
    The Kompressor pulling up the hill to the Gooseneck was a bike in its zone.

    ^ That looks like a lot of fun!
    I'm trying to recall what stock Honda that engine comes from ... what's that mid 80s flat track inspired bike? :scratch
    How many cups does the gas tank hold? :lol3
