It's a bike that I have lusted over for years. I finally went on a serious search for one about 5 years ago and found a perfect untouched bike.Flynnbulldog... Off topic, but I was staring at the screen for while and noticed your collection of bikes. Another GB 500 owner. There are so few that I see or know about. Great fun drive.
My wife felt that I was putting too many miles on #225 and encouraged me to get another "Classic" to keep the total mileage in check, so I have now only 19K on the Hailwood and almost 16K on my Sport. I did take my MH900e for a short (110 miles) spin yesterday - it's so much fun to ride that bike and the reactions of people just add to it.flynbulldog said:I'm with you - I know my MH900e is not in the same league as your bikes but I only rarely ride it trying to keep the mileage reasonable
Look no further Mike, you've found that person ..... Now if you say that you're looking for someone willing to pay more than ..... well, you know what I'm saying .... I'm afraid I'll have to pass. Yours is just soooooooo beautiful; I drool over the pics every now and then and dream about riding that bike.flynbulldog said:I'm probably going to take it to the LasVegas Auction next Jan and see if someone wants it more than I do.
Picture is of Gulliano Maoggi who won the 1956 Giro d'Italia-I was with him last week at the 2010 MotoGiro d'Italia-both he and his wife Anna are great fun and he was still competing in the event-amazing guy.
