This was a friendly couple, they were there on his and hers Stelvios; I spent a couple of minutes admiring his Rigid Industries LEDs (I'm looking for aux lighting for the Ténéré).

Thinking about it, there was a whole gaggle of Guzzis in the lot on Saturday -- or maybe I'm just not used to seeing them. I had to use two hands to count the Stelvios.

She went and painted it on her (likely very expensive) overripe banana of a bike, so she gets to keep it.

I would buy one of those bikes, just because of the name.

Not a bad little bike but could use more motor. Fun to ride to the Gap.

Does look pretty technical, especially for the don't-touch-that-front-brake crowd. ;) And this incident does seem to be attracting a crowd of onlookers. :|
