Hey, is that a Guzzi?
« on: July 29, 2016, 05:09:33 PM »
Saw this user on one of my QA geek forums - haven't been able to contact them yet, but that image looks like maybe it goes with the user name.

Or am I seeing things again?

That's the combustion chamber of the turbo shaft. It is supposed to be on fire. You just don't usually see it but the case and fairing fell off.

Hi Norm, good observation. Its my much missed 2007 CalVin. I had to sell it last year when I left Denver and returned to UK. Now I just need to save up for a replacement........ . :cry:

Welcome to the forum, [CPRMan] / [Vintage Goose]. How long were you in Denver?

In my first youth, as a hitchhiker, I spent two winters there - I swore each one would be my last. A woman I was keeping company with some years later asked me to move there, and that was the end of that  :wink:

It's a nice place if you own a car...I had some fun times hitching to work in the ice and snow.
