    I'd so do that trip. I read about some agencies renting those to do these trips in Northern India and they are like $7000, so buying a bike for $2600 and winging it solo seems like a good plan...

    Wait...you can buy a brand new one in India for $2600 US...Fuck, that sounds awesome.

    Google maps....new dehli to kathmandu to dahka to mandalay to bangkok....4500km...thats doable in a couple weeks..

    Damn you....

    There's a girl riding one solo around the world right now. You can find her vids on Youtube.

    LOL, these things are dump trucks. You can probably find a mechanic every 20' to work on one in that part of the world.

    Gotta go back and check through my stack of "bullet-in" mags.....but I do remember reading about a diesel.

    Last time I was at a RE get together,a RE shop mechanic put it best as far as the old bullets go........."Its the coolest looking piece of brand new sh*t you can buy".......:D disclaimer: I have ZERO experience with the clean-burn engine that came out 10+/- years ago,so things may be better for the new stuff.

    You can probably MacGyver some piston rings out of old Coke cans in those things.

    Guzzis are cool as f@ck. I had a Daytona and it was fun enough and looked cool even if it was at least 16 feet long and impossible to wheelie. :D

    Got it for a song. Well, traded an 851 for it and a wheel barrow full of cash from a suck. . . er, moto guzzi dealer. :D
