This is the Moto Guzzi Aprilia RSV4RF, which is the bike that is rated, still optimistically IMHO, at "configurations up to" 230 hp (probably track-only):

EDIT: I think I just spoke out of my ass. Let me check.

I just spoke out of my ass. I had my manufacturers wrong. I stand by my comments about the 230 hp bobber, though, that's not a thing.

That V-9 Bobber ain't the ugliest bike I ever seen, though.

I like the looks.

That's the article that confused me. I could not recall if Moto Guzzi and Aprilia were under the same umbrella, or not.

I think they are owned by the same group, Piaggio & C. S.p.A.




I need to quit shooting from the hip.

That's not your Father's Chevy. Wait, that's my Father's Chevy. '56, 4 door, his was a 6 and that's a V-8. But those colors, Crocus Yellow and Laurel Green, which were rare, I don't think I've seen more than a half dozen in all these years. Strangely though, I worked with a guy in the 90s that had a 2 door that color combination when it was new.

I think the dealer was shipped that car as a penalty for not meeting sales goals. But They'll sell it, there's always people like Pop, with all their taste in their mouth, who like stuff that's different. Bad trait for a politician because people remember where and when they saw you.

Did your pops also tailgate motorcycle cops and try to run them down?

Yes, while cursing and in a hurry to get pregnant Mom to the hospital, so he wouldn't be late for a card game.

Bruce sent me a link that I found amusing. It seems that VW wants to try to make us happy by buying us off. It's not even a good start.

I don't think this car made it, I can't find it in any of the race results.
250 hp is two or three times the cars that competed, so that might be a mistake, exaggeration, or :bs:.

Two stroke V-8. Why? Damifino. Dirtier than a VW diesel. :eyebrow:

Lots of smoke and thunder but no action.
