Gosh....

Some of you guys are getting pretty rank about other peoples comments and if thats the case, it might be better to simply proceed with your plans in private!

Hey, look at it this way... It appears as if several of us are on board for whatever the build is but some guys simply aren't going to sit in front of a key board without saying anything, whether it be being intelligent, politically correct, polite or not.

This same l kind of bullshit that happens all the time and if everyone agreed with everyone else, we'd do better to be out in the garage alone with the TV on. At least that way we could choose the station!

ADV Riders is about the last place in the world I'd come to expecting to get my a** kissed or to be agreed with but I like it here!

But back to the subject at hand...

Those last two G-bikes look the way the factory should have done em from the beginning! How do the guys eliminating the lower frame tubes hang the front of the engine and still retain frame stiffness? God, I'd love to do that to a Beemer...!

I'm late to the party. No cold water to throw here.
I like Guzzi's stock , really like them modded.

But mainly I'm impressed by your daughter. That's one young lady that's not going to be intimadated by dumb boys ,no way. I tried to raise my daughter the same way and it's worked out well.
Good on you!

Now about the guzzi, if you did the powered push bike in two days, shouldn't we be seeing some progress pics by now?

No kidding... while I've only just "found" Guzzi within the last year or so, this one is probably the most appealing of ALL those I've seen. It hits every point I can think of (shy of putting modern adjustable cartridges in those forks and using Penske shocks ~ I'm a suspension snob).

No cold water here either. I also think that fairing is hideous. Doesn't mean that *IF* it actually worked (I'm 6'4", I haven't met a fairing that helps more than it hurts yet), I wouldn't appreciate the function, but the form is doG-awful fugly.

very valid point. was thinking the same thing myself last night. unfortunately i can't disassemble it until my license plates are delivered. i ordered "modified collector" plates which may require an inspection. until that process is complete (about a month hopefully) i will be riding it and collecting parts.

one other hold back, (which is kinda neat if you don't know what i do for a living) i still have to go to speed week at bonneville and at least two of the remaining formula 1 races which will gobble up about 3 months of whats left of the year. once it's hammer time it has to go quick! daytona testing starts in late december and it has to be done by then!

So, Loaded, what do you do for a living?

Sounds like it might be interesting.



edit: are you Colin Stenhouse?

Do what you want.

Mine started out like this.



I bought it in Dec of 07. I'm just starting to reassemble the engine to build a cafe bike. It's all Farmer Fred's fault. He posted this beautiful cafe Guzzi and I've lusted ever since.

Unfortunately, I let another build and life get in the way of finishing. Here's my story...although I should bring it a little more up to date.

I also commute on an R100RS in the winter. They both block a lot of wind and they're both great bikes, but build what you want. I'm looking forward to where this is goin'.
