I rented one of those in Italy a bunch of years back for the Motogiro d'Italia, same color even. At one point a motorcycle cop on a BMW pulled up next to me at a light, started revving his engine and looked over at me like he wanted to run when it turned... I didn't take up his challenge but yeah, ya gotta love Italy! FWIW I got passed on the outside of a turn by one of those BMW mounted cops. Right on the yellow line, scraping shit as he went by. They aren't afraid to hustle those things along!
I thought this was interesting. From Wikipedia.Bought my Suzuki Bandit a belly pan and a pair of red handlebar grips
Begun all the paperworks to get my Guzzi California the Italian Motorcycle Federation's gold plate, which certifies it's 100% original, something my dad always wanted to do
