Thanks for posting that.  ;D

Loved the sound on #12 and who would've thought you could go so fast on so little HP on #14?!

Good reading. Mario Columbo covered most of that very well. I'm sure those cars had all the time in the world to get up to speed.

Moto Guzzi has a quite loyal fan base and many of them are extremely talented machinists. I keep hoping one day I read about someone duplicating MG's v8 bike. It really is such a fantastic machine.

I actually knew 8 of them who do I sue for the disappointment and subsequent stress?

There have been replicas made in Italy.

With enough $$ you can have one too.
