    A site glass in the valve cover, that's really cool. I like the little decal in front of the cylinder.

    So, new to you in reality or just existence?

    I've never seen this picture before.. Nice machining!

    I like the head guard and the little "U" for the spark plug....

    I've seen those "head guards" before. Don't know if they were intended as such, but several owners told me they were foot rests...as in highway pegs. The sight glass? That's a new one on me. Maybe as a display on a museum bike, but otherwise...

    Several owners were taking the piss! you can't ride with your feet on the rocker covers. There are a variety of those bars available and it should be noted they they are known as ROCKER protection bars. They won't protect the cover or head fins in anything more than a walking pace drop but if you're lucky you won't wipe out the rocker carriers if you stack.

    While the sight glass is a nice touch there isn't a lot to actually see through it. I've seen similar *Windows* at the top of bevelly Ducati cam towers that are more interesting and actually have a function, to allow you to see when the straight 50 weight oil has warmed up enough so you can start thrashing it!

    That looks a bit tough on the wrists, neck and hands. Probably could stand some time with Rick or Bill, the Mayer guys, as well.

    I imagine there's a equally comfy seat for the "monkey" on the other side....

    new to me Guzzi pic

    Yeah. I must be weird liking rideable bikes with fenders and stuff.

    Give me a $10k bike and I'll cut off all the useful stuff and sell it back to you for $30k

    now that one is much better than the fenderless wonder.
    I kinda like the fenderless look but....... bikes look better with fenders.
