My Guzzi is my only way of getting around since i sold my car 2 years ago
Moved up to Guzzis about ten years ago after owning a string of bevel Ducatis. The long-suffering Lemans is my "learn to hot-rod Guzzis" project - if I've learned from my mistakes I'm now very knowledgeable. I'm a bike mechanic by the way, and a pretty boring type who does little but mess around with bikes.
Picked up my T3 last November (2001) and have progressively restored almost everything on the machine except the bottom end. The more I ride it, the more I love it, but I'm told this is a normal Guzzi experience. I would really love to have a V7 Sport but I wont do that at the expense of my T3 so that will have to wait a while.
This is my first Guzzi. Have had it for two years now and absolutely love it. Love riding it. Is nearly better than sex.
bikes: 97 Daytona RS
I'm a 50 yr old. I live in Melbourne. I have been riding motorcycles again for the last 8 years. I learnt to ride on my mate's new '72 Ducati 750 GT, in exchange for the remedial work on the Duc's electrics. Before the Guzzi I rode a R100 RT for a few years. I like tinkering and maintaining the bike almost as much as I like to riding. I think the sound of a 4V Guzzi, with the right exhaust pipe, in full flight is shear delight.
Hi there. As of the 18th July 2002 I am the proud owner of a new burgundy (I would say candy apple) red and grey Moto Guzzi V11 Le Mans. My previous bike was a black 1999 Yamaha TRX 850. So far I love the character of the new Guzzi, and looks wise I think its a work of art
I took a MKIII Ago Special to Cape York in 1987 and brought most of it back on the back of a ute, people said I was mad, though I still suffer flash backs. Rebuilt three times over 16 years and finally got a new bike early 2000. Test rode about 20 bikes, unsatisfied, I seen this yellow MG Corsa in the shop window and bought it. It's never let me down, once biten. We've clocked up 15000k's and she feels just run in. Would like a little more GO but I'm still smiling. Cheers.
I bought the worn-out Lario and I am bringing it up to spec as economically as possible. My first Guzzi. I'm more interested in having it go nicely than looking good. My intentions are to keep it forever, since it is worth more to me than its small market value. I will be looking for a well-maintained Guzzi 1100 Cali or similar next year.
