    The other twisted vee twin

    Photographed with engine dropped from the frame.

    German model , 2 wheeler, chain driven, fitted with single exhaust above the saddle, integrated front and rear rim brakes, max speed of 55 km @ 110rpm on a level road, slight breeze from behind.

    Not for sale.

    Like the name says: every time the engine drops from the frame the ride FELT good...

    Yes Bikamper, the frame, plus the integrated system of wheels and gearbox and brakes, is fairly new, but the fleshy 2 piston motor that attaches itself to the bike every so often, is twice as old as my real Honda GL 500 D Silverwing

    I'm not twice as old as my CX. Close though. But a couple of the other type are older than me.

    Nooit! A Moto Guzzi would have been even more out of place on a respected CXforum like this.

    To ride a Moto Snoozie ( I love this term, asking permission to quote you....) is much harder work than to ride a motorbike, but it delivers a kind of magic of it's own
