Greetings to the faithful, hope your weeks gone as planned, and your bikes are either on the bench or on the road. Had a great week last week, my long lost mate from England turned up and finally picked up his Moto Guzzi. Didn't go well the first day but it's all good now thanks to Pat at Marco Imports. When we had the Guzzi apart we noticed that it had twin plug heads and from the looks of it, this was factory, not done afterwards. I have tried to find out about the specifications of this bike but all to no avail. It's a 1995 1100 Sport two valver. Can anyone enlighten me on this? The bike itself has Ohlins rear, Mikuni flat slides and a full Termignoni Exhaust system, so it's got the go that's for sure. Dare I say it goes better then my old Daytona.
Well this is going to be the last blog for a few weeks, as I have finally packed the apartment and am getting ready to go off line and move. I will try and get back on line as soon as possible, but at the moment it looks like it will be a few weeks yet, so please bear with me as I transition through this to my new life. Oh I've made this one a bit bigger, so that you can get through this period with as little pain as possible, thanks for all your thoughts and well wishes.
Keep you eyes out for the next installment.
As you know I purchased ( arranged to buy really), a second 900SS, as I really like them but as we were loading out some more bikes a really nice ( but beat up a bit) 1000 GT Ducati Sports Classic came out. Opps 900SS goes back and the GT is mine ( I promise Pat), I've been looking for one of these for a while, it needs some work ( gauges, bars, headlight, and definitely seat), so once I am in my new home I will commence with that re-build, looking forward to it.
I liked this Guzzi, might be the color, but it's more about it's presence it just looks great sitting there.
Well I've now owned my Diavel for a year ( record), and last week I found myself hunting the net and looking for parts and inspiration colors etc etc, and then it hit me, I don't have to do anything because I like this bike so much, it looks great, it goes great, all my friends have ridden it and rave about it, I just came to writers block, I mean how do you improve this.
So in closing that's all for this week.
So that's a wrap, as i said I will try to get back on line as quickly as I can. please share the blog with as many people as possible, and keep your eyes for the changes that are set to come.
Ciao for now.
