Changed Brand of 650 Recently

Last fall, I acquired a black 2008 650 Exec. I got tired of it last week, and now have this scooter:





(Note that this is not to be confused with the time I owned a red 2007 Exec, and got tired of that, too. I sold that scooter five years ago, but some pics of it linger on the forum: Got tired of "What is that thing?" .)

Regards,

Bill P.

2008 Exec:

Givi E52; AdMore lights; CustomLED flasher; Clearview; SpeedoHealer; Motolights; Running-lights mod; Powerlet socket; MCL RAM covers; G2 Throttle Tamer

2007 Exec [Sold in '12]:

Givi E52; Clearview; MC Cruise; SpeedoHealer; Motolights; Stebel air horn; Running-lights mod; Oznium LEDs; Powerlet sockets; MCL RAM cover; SW-Motech riser; Manic Salamander bar ends; Yoshimura exhaust; G2 Throttle Tamer

Good choice, too!

My buddy bought his first scooter, a Citycom, and it had a Ducati decal on it. I was hesitant to go riding to the local MC hangouts with him for fear of reprisals from real Duc owners. Eventually he gave it the moniker "Duchecati". Lol.

Good luck with that.

all you need is a license plate frame that says "My other scooter is a Moto Guzzi"

Personally, I'm still on the lookout for a "Half-a-busa" sticker.
