Race Goose!
« on: October 06, 2015, 12:33:13 am »
This is completely impractical but what the heck.  I stop by this website that carries ads for old racebikes every once in a while and spotted this wonderful old Moto Guzzi for sale.  Now, as far as I know there probably isn't a current racing class for this bike in the US and I might not want to race it anyway since it looks so good.  But what a track day bike! 

(Or maybe I'll just put it in the living room with some lights shining on it and that'll give me something a lot more interesting than the TV to look at while I sip my beer.)

Yeah, I know, none of that is ever going to happen but looking at a cool old bike like this makes me want to dream big!
