I'm a retired firefighter, never without a bike since age 21. I bought a V7 Sport new 1974 (since sold, drat), I have owned a Falcone, a Lodola and them things with bevel driven camshafts. I've also been a longtime owner of Pommie V twins beginning with a V.
I'm a first time Guzzi owner. It's my one and only bike now. I find it a bit hard to make time to ride as I'm in the family and career comes first stage of life, but will I always have a bike in the garage.
I did my trade on bikes in the seventies and I've had my Rickman since then, but living in the Pilbara for 25 years I didn't ride a lot until moving back to the hills in 2006. At that time I happened to visit a bike shop in Vic Park and there was the MG Cali Stone, I bought it on a whim and fell in love. I still have my Rickman but I enjoy cruising nowadays and the Stone does it for me.
I've lived, breathed, worked, raced, sweated / bled motorcycling for 20 years. Then I got a family / business and stopped riding daily. Now 12 years later I've rediscovered the passion!
Recently retired from full time work; looking forward to building a workshop and then restoration of the Moto Guzzis
I presently live in the Torres Strait where I get around on the Vespa. Thursday Island is 3 square km. At the end of the year I will be returning to Brisbane were I have a de-registered Nevada waiting to be ridden.
I tend to change my rides every two years but this ones a keeper.
I'm an engineer by training. I have had British bikes in the past but I stick to Guzzis now.
I've had the T3 for about 5 years now. It was the first Guzzi I have owned. It was going to be a rebuild project but it just keeps going. The KLR was a recent purchase just to have something new. I have previously owned BSA, Triumph, BMW and Japanese bikes.
