Yeah, right. I don't have a garage. I field-stripped the fairings off in the street for my lunch break and it's coming from the cylinder head valve cover gasket. Thanks to the C14's construction, that takes hours to get to. It's now semi-bolted so everything still on the bike will stay put while I ride it home. I'm probably going to it in the yard and cover it until the snow melts unless I magically find a space to work on it before everything turns white.

That's my guess. I'm optimistic it will fix itself when things are warmer than 10-20 degrees, but I'm not going to bet on it.

Any of you Yankee types out there have a good way to protect a non-waterproof GPS like a Garmin Nuvi 50.

Immediately thought of that pic, goodol, when I read his first question.

Fella went into a pharmacy to purchase some condoms. The marked price was $4.00.

He walked up to the counter, where the cashier said, "That will be $4.20, please."

"Four twenty? What's the other twenty cents for?"

"Tax," the cashier replied.

"Tacks? I'm not that vigorous. I'll just roll 'em on."

Guzzi for sale...

I have known this Mille for years, I know the original owner and all the work that he did to it. Amazing amount of engine upgrades.

Although I do not know the current owner, we have talked on the phone regarding the sale of the Mille. He is just not using it so it is on the block.

I would be glad to check this out for any possible buyers.
Best,
Rob

Nice bike. Just changed the gearbox and bevel drive oil. That Redline stuff sure doesn't flow quickly when it's 20deg.
