What are they thinking?

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

And plenty of other places as well Chuck. It's a sad indication of whats driving the market in a lot of areas these days. Lets just abandon all practical reasoning and/or engineering and an enhanced outcome in the pursuit of "Individuality" and the vain hope you will somehow stand above the masses propelled by the purchase of a fairly useless, impractical, motorcycle,car or whatever.

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

Yes the Guareschi brothers kit. It's very nice but have a think. You are taking an engine, transmission and final drive that is totally unsuited to a cutting edge pointy ended sports motorcycle and cr

Is this a new model coming in the V7 range? Will it be called a 7t? i.e. single turbo??

AF1 had this in their open house last year during MotoGP.  I don't know if it's a turbo kit or if those guys are developing or fab'ing something.

Hey. I'd ride either of those bikes.  Looks like a hoot.  I wouldn't spend any money but I wouldn't turn down a ride.

Hmmm, just remember who's siting in the white house a the moment.

Who are you to talk? You're not even American. Far better than that fascistic clown running Australia. Morrison? 

Ran out of anything to say so you try to attack American politics? Seriously? 🤣

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. :P

Sadly Australian conservatives to American standards is still socialist..🤣

But even socialists can be fascistic. 

Enough politics. Way off tangent.

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. :P

Count me in!!

Me..............all the gear and no idea.

If I wasn't so dammed old and had other shit to do I'd be building a Guareschi as well and it still might happen. Of course throwing my aging corpse into the saddle might be another issue

This is the Moto Guzzi V11 forum, right?  That thing is about as far from a V11 as one can get, even outside what a transverse, air cooled, 90 degree twin should be subjected to, meaning Piaggio will likely sign up the creator for their MG design team.  Then again, after their MGX-21 Flying Fartstress, there's no where to go but up.  :vomit:

But I like the Fartstress. :P Actually what I would like to have is an Audace with the fairing and bags off of one.
