  1. I dunno. It's more or less an MGS 01 fairing with the fancy bits filled in. Put a deeper V for the windscreen and a central headlight and it'd look fine.
  2. He shook my hand once. I was about ten or twelve, it was during a visit to Australia for some occasion or other. I took my own son to see him and the Queen on their last visit here a few years ago. I'm no royalist but it was obviously likely to be the last chance, and there's a real sense of an era ending. RIP. Not a perfect man but definitely a remarkable one.
  3. And some shops are no better. I had a service done on a Kwaka, riding home up the freeway I realised my leg was wet. Pulled over and found they'd just stuck the fuel line back on the tap without a clip. Still on enough to run the bike somehow, but petrol pissing down my leg. I'd have done a better job myself...apprentices, nnnngh. No argument here though. Squids don't give a rat's arse about ANYTHING.
  4. Oh, *joy*. To be fair though the blurry teaser does look more Grisoish than that.
  5. This sounds great, but I can't shake the nagging feeling that 'new' might be a very flexible word! These are the same folk who insisted that the V85 mill was ground-up brand new for years and years. And it is undeniably strange to leave any new model announcement until *months after* your brand's 100th anniversary. I want a new, euro-compliant, big bore transverse v-twin with oodles of power as much as anyone. If we get one in a sexy sport-tourer it will be my first ever completely brand-new buy, and my first dealer buy in 24 years. But I won't hold my breath, we've had too many of these fa
  6. Even less reason to continue holding out any hope, then. Oh well, off to TLM to plonk down stupid amounts on an Ohlins part I'll almost certainly never get to use.
  7. I mean, you sorta think, it's the north...maybe some kind of semblance of organisation. That's the most industrial, functional part of the country, right? Ha. Must be completely maddening for dealers.
  8. Oh heck man. That sounds terrifying. All the best.
  9. Aprilia itself didn't think that way during their ownership of Guzzi. It's a stupid attitude; there is little overlap between Guzzi and Aprilia buyers and Aprilia clearly thought so too - they kicked off the Griso and almost got the MGS-01 out the door. I’ve always suspected a not-invented-here, compartmentalising, corporate-drone mindset at Piaggio was more to blame for that fail than Euro compliance, power concerns etc etc. The bike obviously got some way towards production – they changed from a fabricated steel tank to a plastic one, and the gearbox part to which the swingarm mounts was eve
  10. I mean, it's looking like extinction at this rate, is it not? The official site lists the V85 and V7. And the 2017 California. The V9's existence is acknowledged in an intro/sneak peak article. How many models are really in production right now?
  11. Capellini spoke of a road version, and a 4-valve liquid-cooled engine. Has there been anything sighted anywhere since, on either topic?
  12. do it do it do it! And post a great big honking build thread. I would bloody *love* to follow a GC Corse build, haha.
  13. Yep. I love that thing. I am buying MGS 01 bits and hoping to dress up a Centauro or V11 (yes I know it's stupid and fake and whatnot) - but if I could register one of those here, I'd jump for that instead in a heartbeat. Edit: I know that the GC Corse kit is stupid and fake and whatnot too. No argument. It's pretty though, and I'm shallow.
  14. Yeah, Morrison. It's a surprise to hear that from an American TBH, I'm more used to hearing our leaders described as raging socialists. Even our conservatives like Morrison.
