Totally true, Xracer. And, I don't like the look of this style bike. I don't know how to post s link, but my preference is the '78 Moto Guzzi SP1000, then the SP1000 II. Have I mentioned I'm an old curmudgeon???

Wonder if he is still around?

I was able to meet him at Summit Point many years ago. Nice fellow and man his bike sounded good growling down the front straight!

LT, thanks for finding and posting that link. And I have heard of Dr. John. Very well known by the Guzzi go fast folks. lol I've read a few referrences to him in Cafe Racer magazine also. I guess they are talking about the same guy. I really like the upper fairing of the SP's, not so much the lowers. Guzzi has used a wind tunnel for years trying to get the best aerodynamics. Supposedly, the SP fairing was the "business" in its day. I think these look like real motorcycles, more than the new stuff. That new Guzzi looks like a Victory to me. Yes, I am a curmudgeon. This site is great for this, you guys are the best.
