The biggest horror to me is to see a bike of which cylinders stick out sideways.

At least the Guzzi has more ground clearance, but it is truly horrendous.

Like a Royal Enfield that they try to drag forward into the 18th century by painting and stickering. :eek7:

Dis vir beter lugverkoeling  :deal:
As hulle agter mekaar gesit het sou die agterste een pal te warm geloop het. Vra maar vir Harley hoe hul eerste modelle se agterste silinder geseize het.

Probably as reliable as an Alfa.  >:D

That has 1st hand experience with Guzzie, albeit many years ago.
If You're going through hell, keep going.

I think it's beautiful.
