    Just picked up a new toy......

    Just a few weeks back I added a new toy to the stable.
    It's a 2000 Cagiva Gran Canyon. Just 2700mi on it.
    It has the twin valve Ducati 900ss motor in it so its not a hot rod, but with the suspension it has, its like riding a nimble cadillac. heres a couple of pix.

    That is sweet! Is it intended to do off-road stuff too? Seems it would be great for fire roads and the like. Probably much lighter than a Capo too.
    For my money it doesn't get any better than when he sings, "When a man loves a woman". I celebrate his entire catalog.

    Tee-Dubb you are correct, it origionally came with metzler dual pupose tires. Extremely comfortable bacause it was intended for mild off road use. The suspension absorbs potholes like a champ. Not to sure if its lighter than the Capo. The Cagiva is 511 wet , but it surely dosent feel like it. Thanx for the thumbs up

    Since the Aprilia motard may be a distant dream, I'd love a Suzuki DRZ400 to terrorize the town on! Off road ability would be pretty cool too.
