Giuseppe "Pino" Todero, the guy who crashed the other Guzzi V8, is a mate of mine. When I sympathised with him and said that must have been embarrassing he said, a bit sharply, "Why embarrassing? I have done it, you haven't" I hope he didn't think I was criticising him.
He went on to say that he was trying to pass another rider before the corner and simply came in too "hot" and couldn't brake enough.
A classic case of the "red mist" coming down. Can happen to us all.

I love the totally random application of your Guzzi agenda. A high revving 500cc V8 with 1/16th of the swept capacity per cylinder of the S&S motor in the M3W would hardly be 3 wheeling Nirvana. Mind you, I understand where you're coming from as the collected works of Dr. Fabio Taglioni, engineering genius of Ducati fame remain very close to my heart.
