I had a mk3 Lemans, sold it and regretted it. I just bought a beautiful mk2/ mk1 lookalike. I also own a Honda Blackbird--power to burn, comfortable, reliable but something's missing. the Guzzi has it!!
Recently returned from 10 years in Singapore. My 1100 Sporti (bought new in 1997) is much modified (too much to list), both engine and chassis, and I program my own chips. It is my second Guzzi (a Le Mans III in 1982 was my first), and was ridden from Singapore to Phuket (Thailand) and on the track at Sepang (Malaysia).
Into bikes , rallies , family stuff , work .not in that order?
Hi all, Well...... what do I say here? I am a recent owner of my first
(real) Guzzi, after having been saddled on a poor mans guzzi (CX500) for far
too long. Must say the pleasure is all mine...... I have absolutely fallen
head over heels for my beloved Le Mans and hope to learn a lot & associate
myself with some likeminded people, as, WA still does NOT have a Guzzi
Have owned bike for 12 years and love the experience every ride. Bike is in original condition apart from it being black. Got an 8yr old daughter who never misses the chance for a blast and a 2yr old boy who is desperate to grow up so he can reach the passenger footpegs. Would like to meet more Guzzi riders and be keen for weekend rides.
I have been a member on this site before, but dropped off for a while due to time restrictions while restoring the 3 Hondas. The Moto Guzzi has been given a head job, the crank case was pulled down (no trouble there), and the gear box was good. Since then it has been sitting in the shed. I just want to do a few changes, some rewiring, finish painting and get it on the road. I have a bit of arthritis in the hands and this bike doesn't need much clutching.
My Sportster is a commuter hack. When I want to go for a real ride, I take the Guzzi.
I'm a fitter by trade working in a gold mine in WA. I live in Adelaide where the V11 patiently waits to be ridden. I recently purchased an NTX 650 (much to Hendrik Gout's dismay) in Cairns and will be riding it back to WA in early Feb. The first time I ever rode a Guzzi was the day I took possession of the V11. Now there is no turning back.
