Yeah, me too.  With those two gorgeous jugs so prominently displayed and that shapely rear she's a real looker.


The girl's kinda cute too.

I've only seen two MotoGuzi's on the road and dealers are rather rare.  I just have never liked those cylinders sticking out.  They just look hot, temp wise.  However, that doesn't mean I'd turn one down if given to me.

Nice Bike, not for me. I am kind of like Jackie on that. Plus, I am not a big bike guy.
Ride Country Roads - a lot. :-)

The Motorcyclist magazine that showed up in my mailbox a couple of days ago had this swoopy new Goose on its cover and an article inside reviewing it.  The short take is that they were surprised by how well the bike performed and say it's as much a sport tourer as a traditional bagger.  You can read it here on the magazine's website and see a short video about the bike.

Ian mentioned to me that the news and pics of the bike caused a bit of a stir at Smoky Mtn Harley.
