Guess that's why my '77 850 T3 has 112,000 miles on it so far.
Some bikes just feel right.

I have watched quite a few of your youtube videos. Always enjoy watching the 1972 navigating the back roads.

 We don't always need  the latest and greatest techno-whiz bang 2 wheel upgrade to enjoy the essential goodness of why we ride.  It is comforting to know that we can work on our 2wheel dream catcher when needed. I get it.  I think most Guzzi-ista's and many HD owners do.
