    Am I the only one thinking that a Guzzi without a Guzzi engine is no more a Guzzi?

    Wow, I like that. The big V8 sound and the engineering creativity.

    :clap: Niiice!!:inlove:

    But I'm not sure that he's got the heat dispersal problem licked with the oil coolers sandwiched between the V8 exhaust manifold and pipe. Must be a monster kicking off heat when its fully warm. Were it mine, I'd have to have a bit more muffler/sound control, but pretty cool.

    I think my heart broke a little when he said it was a goldwing tank- I was trying to find the sight lines for a stretched/worked original. No wonder I couldn't!

    Nope. I'm with you. Although I do appreciate the intelligence and craftsmanship of the motorcycle, there is nothing left of a Moto Guzzi in it anymore.

    Interesting, but not a Moto Guzzi at all.
