wonderful bike

Absolutely wonderful, non 2 stroke, sport bike that fit the ordinary guy. Fast, nimble and stonking torque. The new 1000cc bikes are 10-30 mph faster but a ticket for 157mph is proof the tubby girl runs well. And you could afford it.

There's a family living in that exhaust.

Nice bike, though.

I have a comment for that but I'll refrain from posting it.

Anyway, the CX is the poor-man's Guzzi. Get yourself a real Guzzi and do away with that foofoo stuff like reliability, parts availability and dealer support.

The bike is 13 years old and exhaust is now under seat on mine. It doesn't smoke, has no captive bees in the pipe, doesn't need hand guards or frame guards, gets fantastic MPG and never breaks down except for the R&R.

And, it makes a really cheap track bike and no one will steal it ever.
