Now if it came with dual controls so you could enjoy the freedom of a bike when it's nice out and be able jump inside when the monsoon starts you'd have something.

Old Italian bike. Only one I ever saw was a 1000 CC triple in the early 80's. The only photos I've ever seen they were always painted orange.

I think one of the current Italian marks bought them out.

Interesting concept and very well put together but I would not have spent 10 years of my life on this.

Me neither and I guess that's why it is so fascinating. Heck of a job mating the two seamlessly.

Nor would I but who can put a price on something that gave him joy. It's cheaper than therapy.

Don't be afraid to say what you feel, as those that matter DOnt mind and those that mind Dont matter.
