Merry Christmas to you all, the faithful followers of the V2Guzzi Blog. Well that year has come, been, spent, and gone. Don't view this one at work, not that it's dangerous to open at work, it is so massive that you just will not have the time to go through it all in one go, it's that massive. This is the final collection of all the images that I have left over from a years worth of travelling the internet. Some you may have seen before, some not, but it's all great. This year has seen me change a number of bikes and move onto other types of riding. I sold my BMWF800GS, and got a BMWF800R, I bought a Moto Guzzi Daytona, sold a Moto Guzzi Le Man3 and bought a Husky 610E, plus I have ordered another bike as a project next year too, so all was not quiet on the motorcycle front. Been for some great rides and made some new friends, both through this forum and on the road. So all good.  next year is going to good as well, off to the Italian GP, the IOM, and the Dutch GP, perhaps I will meet some of you who follow me over there.  Well what to say now, merry Christmas to you all, have a great festive season and you never know, I may just see you on the road.











Classic Alpine Stars, and we threw ours away when we had done with them. I had a spare parts guy say to me the other day "did you know that Alpinestars used to have a round logo". I said " what like these ones that I'm wearing'. then I realised my faithful old road boots were really old, I mean really old and still good.






I do like these.
