This! As I spend an awful lot of time saying about the CARC bikes in general, love them for what they are. Not what they're not! You can make a superb 'Road' bike out of a Griso but even if you c

For me, this guys have the best kit in the market for a Guzzi. Period

Unlike yourself I actually periodically watched this bike get built. 

It's literally a ground up build. The frame started from a 12" diamond trellis mockup. The motor was completely redone. Everything was custom made for that bike. The rear shock alone  on that thing costs as much as your V11 . The only donor parts are a 1400 Cali motor and a V7 Racer tank. But the motor internals were ground up redone. He's getting 140hp+ out that Cali motor and offers a supercharger.. 

I mean mock it all you like. I like more agro myself. But honestly after knowing what went into that thing? It's a $40k bike. 

So you watched a youtube video which caught you up to speed in this thing, right? What was it? 2-3 minutes? Fully informed...

Sorry but the additional information makes it an even more pointless exercise in my mind. You've actually just reinforced how ridiculous it really is. 

Offers a supercharger option! If ever there was proof needed of abject silliness there it is.

Well, I don't think anyone here thinks any motorcycle is actually useful. :rasta: Abject silliness is what it is all about.. and there are many in SoCal that will pony up their pocket change for something like this. I, too, have seen Todd's work.. and it is first class. Is it for me? No. Make that Hell No. :D

My goodness, why would anyone put a blower on a Guzzi?   Has that ever happened?

That's fine.  But I do find it humorous to see an Australian criticize "Abject Silliness." 

To each their own.
