As Seen on Market Street: A Moto Guzzi and a Gaultier Pants (All Right)

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Man oh man I’d feel super self-conscious driving this rig around town wearing all these leather accessories, I’ll tell you. Appears as if at least six individual cows had to die for this ensemble. Wow.

And the bike, well, it’s an older model that’s been restored. At first I was thinking it was like a 2011 version of an Italian Harley, but now I’m thinking it’s not retro at all, it’s just an old bike in perfect shape.

Anyway, I always wondered what “a Moto Guzzi and a Gaultier pants” looked like, and now I know.
