I've returned to riding this year after a long break. Previously I rode a V50 Monza, purchased new in 1984, when I lived in Queensland.
Well, have a look at my homepage where there are pictures of all bikes I have ever had. Too many my wife tells me. Oh well. I love the Bellagio except that it spends too much time at A1 Motorcycles. They can't get it right! Ulysses club member.
I'm retired. I like taking day rides east of Melbourne with my son. I have another bike in Europe I use touring.
I just sold my RG500 and bought this Le Mans 3. I found the RG too 'peaky' and was thinking either Ducati or Moto Guzzi. I nearly bought a Sport 1000 but then I read all I could and settled on a Le Mans. I had decided against a LM4 and then this LM3 came up for sale. I was first off the blocks and bought it in 5 minutes. I am really glad too.....I am just getting used to it and its VERY different power delivery to the RG!!

I've been into bikes forever. I have recently (last 5 years) returned to road bikes. I was previously enduro riding till it hurt too much (read too old). I had Ducati's a long time ago but got into BM's on my return to road stuff. I've always wanted a Guzzi but I'd never got around to it till now. I've had this one for a couple of months and I'm still getting used to it but I like it very much. I'm a member of MGOA and it is a great club with a lot of good people. I'm also in the BMW touring club which is equally good.
I work as a preschool teacher, play soccer, I'm VERY into scouting, and I've been on/working on bikes since before I remember, thanks to my dad Pogo. (Yes, I'm Pogo's kid.)
My brother & I bought the V7R last May, having fallen in love with it. Ever since I've been learning about the history of the company, the V7 lineage and enjoying the legend that Moto Guzzi has become over the years. Riding the V7R is quirky, eccentric even, old school definitely, but all the better for these traits. The finish and detailing of the bike are beautiful & we love the admiration & attention the bike get whenever we're out riding it.
My greatest passion is also my greatest downfall; I just love motorbikes. I only bought the Norge 3 days ago. Sex on a stick. I've owned over 18 different bikes, a Honda RC30, a couple of GSXR1100, DR'S, XT'S, XV1100, CB750's the list goes on... I've always admired Guzzi's but never liked their build quality until now. In fact in 12 months I might get another. Guzzi's are now better made than Japs.
