Foto Friday Finale lol
« on: April 05, 2019, 11:19:45 PM »
    I love the red accents that MG has used over the years, the Italians have a certain flair for design that usually works.

    I think that adding the red valve covers from the MGX to other models, was a wise style and business decision, the bikes look tasty imho.

    But when I saw this latest MG fashion accessory sitting on an MGX, all I could think of, were the idiots that I see riding around with beanie helmets and skull face masks on.

    I hope I'm not offending anybody, I think if your goal is to scare old ladies and small children, I'm sure this helmet works great, but I can't imagine someone walking into a dealership, saying "please take my money, I want to look like Darth Vader"   

    I can envision these being on sale for half price in the near future, just saying. :grin:

Hope I’m not offending anyone when I say I wouldn’t wear that thing to a dogfight.

     Those are all beautiful bikes, but they should be on the the original thread that Luap started,https://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=100397.0

     I apologize for confusing the issue.

     Love the dog, the bikes are well protected.

     Are you kidding? In my part of the world, everything Moto Guzzi is internet not real life in person,lol.

     If I want to look at Moto Guzzi bikes/gear at a dealer, I'd have to do a 2-3 hr road trip.

     This helmet photo was included in an ad on kijiji, for an MGX for sale in Montreal, Que.

     I was surprised to see the MG attempt at selling the fashion accessories like HD does.

All manufacturers sell fashion accessories like Harley.  The difference is that I can get Harley stuff cheaper.  Go figure.
