Re: riding the fast bike fast...

Rode my Moto Guzzi today, been about two weeks. Love this bike. Let me say that again, love the 2017 V7 Special. Only 52 hp, but wow what torque and smooth. It is deceptively fast. Compared to the MV acceleration is modest, but the Guzzi cruises at 80 beautifully, handles wonderfully and is predictable and comfy as can be. The interesting thing, I actually cover more miles, faster on the Guzzi than on the wicked fast MV. Mandello del Lario has something to teach Varese to the west: yes both northern Italia, but clearly Guzzi has depth and character where the MV has blazing white hot passion.

The Dragster RR gets a run tomorrow.

Re: riding the fast bike fast...

Over 40-years on the street, 60-years old and still find myself saying "well that was stupid" after a ride.
Hard to hold back on the mountain twisties or long stretches of open road.

I resemble that remark....
You are a little bit ahead of me in saddle years but the song remains the same.
