Some of you may know me from the WildGuzzi forum. I totaled my Le Mans V about 6 years ago on the back of a Chevy Blazer and will possibly be riding again in the next year. I started Eurobike in Raleigh the week before my accident and am looking forward to going to it this weekend in Raleigh, NC. Of all the Guzzis since the V11, the 8V GRiSO is the most like the Le Mans, and given the direction from Piaggio (Aprilia is now their sport bike brand), likely to be the last gentlemen's express from Guzzi. A line that goes back to 1972 with the V7 Sport (the real one, not the new small block) and includes my 74 V7 Sport that will be resurrected in the next few years.
