I rode Japanese superbikes in the 70's when I was a reprobate student. After 26 years, I decided it was time to scratch the itch and buy a cruiser. I did not want a cruiser that did not handle and always loved the Guzzis. I am now getting reaquanted with riding and taking it very easy, just loving it on weekends when I can get away. Peak hour traffic is to be avoided at all costs - no fun.

bikes: 2003 Moto Guzzi Breva V750IE

The Breva is my first non-Japanese bike, and a return to riding after several years absence. It came with lots of factory extras, including a larger screen, a centre stand, Hepco & Becker Panniers, Bitubo shocks and a Givi top box.

bikes: Moto Guzzi V7 Classic

I've been riding bikes since 1970, owning all sorts of German and Japanese machines along the way, but this is the first Guzzi I've owned. I was very lucky in the 1980s to have ridden lots of different Guzzis and I decided some times ago that the bike I would buy when I returned to riding after a longish layoff would be a Guzzi.

bikes: V7 Classic 2008

I'm a late starter to road bikes - I rode dirt bikes as a kid. I was looking at a Truumph bonnie and happened to see a V7. After one ride I was hooked on Guzzi.

James Manser
age: 50 (ish)
Location: Sydney
bikes: 1981 V50 MKIII and an '86 Le Mans 1000 MKIV

I started riding Guzzis about two years ago with the Le Mans 1000 and recently bought a neglected V50. I love the V50 around town.... Sweet, like a coffee grinder and the Le Mans torque is a thumping treat. I would like to become more proficient in the workshop and I am interested in simple technical material. I have owned Japanese bikes from 1976 but I won't be going back now.

Location: Adelaide
bikes: LM2, Ariel 600 sidevalve

I am a member of the V&V club of SA and have a couple of Ariels but have always had a hankering for a 750S3 since I had a ride on the back of my brother in law's one at over 100mph many years ago. I think they are the best looking (and sounding) motor bike ever made by God or man. I finally got a some what nude LM2. I love it. I am going to tidy it up and make it look like a 750s.
