A beautiful motorcycle and the accessories are as rounded and curved as the bike. I can see hints of the engine here and there around the fairing and like all Italian 4 stroke engines, the external architecture is a treat to behold.

When it comes to vehicles, especially their sporting versions...cars or motorcycles..the Italians are difficult to beat.

They have an eye for style....as proved by the lines of this Parilla.

Like the extra padding on the tank. Gives some comfort when crunch over. It is kinda sad to see the buell 1125 in the background. It had a store lived life, and it was the first serious sports motorcycle form a US maker in a very long time. Kinda ironic that it is already in the museum

Not many were sold. I never had the pleasure of ridding one. I have a better photo of it I can post.

The Buell 1125 was a bike for a different market, it was very popular in Europe. It is a great handling bike.

Big Dawg,

As an old, retired motorcycle enthusiast if I lived down south and close to the Barber Museum, I would volunteer my services.

I think this museum is phenomenal .
