I'm back on the bike after fifteen years off. Last bike was a Moto Morini 500 sport and a Strada before that one. Last bike was sadly sold when I moved to the UK. Now back in Vic and I'm enjoying the Moto Guzzi a hell of a lot.

Damien Hempenstall

Location: St. Kilda, Vic.
bikes: 850 T4

I have an 1983 850 T4. It is my late father's bike, actually, which I have returned to the road. Dad purchased the bike in Italy new and rode with my mother around Europe. I dig this bike despite old bike challenges. I ride most weeks and enjoy loading the camel up going away for days.

Brian Clancy
age: 73
Location: Roma, Qld.
bikes: 2015 Moto Guzzi V7II

I rode Triumph Thundebirds about 45 years ago. I purchased a Breva 1100 in 2014. This proved to be too large for my inner seam and had reversed brake / gear pedals. Later I found a buyer for the 1100 and sat back waiting for the V7II to come out. I purchased the 2015 V7II mainly because it had ABS brakes. I'm happy with the purchase, but I have changed the suspension using IKON rear shocks and front springs.
