    Only on the ticket. I was once stopped for riding red (Moto Guzzi) in the middle lane of an interstate while cages were passing me on the left. Red bikes attract cops like a red cape attracts bulls.

All it needs is a new speedo, front brake job, and either a generator or battery (not sure which yet). Any info would be appreciated.
    I'll give you $1600 for it!
