Gentlemen, the Repsol Goldwing. 1800RR?

Spotted last night at our local Backfire Moto meet. Not my photo, currently digging for info.

I'm pretty sure thats a Goldwing motor, but perhaps others could chime in?

The Valkyrie motor is chromed, yes?

That thing is crazy. Wonder how it handles?

I followed the link...it's a damned shame what happened to that Guzzi. I mean, if you're going to attack your bike with a Sharpie, the least you could do is be creative.

With a wheelbase that long, I'd wager that the answer is "not well".

What the heck was that guy thinking? Drinking? Smoking?...

I actaully think it looks pretty cool. I hate the way Goldwings look. A stock Goldwing just looks ridiculously huge and gaudy.

This looks very interesting. Needs to lose the CBR badging though.
