Thanks fella`s. I`m getting on with it ok actually. It is a different riding experience for sure. Very agricultural and the right hand heel / toe gear change takes a bit of getting used to. I want to change all the oils next, just to be sure all is ok and there is one or two oil leaks to sort. I like it very much Thumbs Up

Hi. I did NOT import it. It was imported in the nineties I think (I do have copies of shipping/ import paper) and from what I can gather was brought straight to here (IOM) but without looking at all the paperwork with it I can`t say that`s gospel. Cheers.Wink

Very nice!

How do you get on with those US "police" bars? They wouldn't work for me - too much like a wheelbarrow!

very much like a wheelbarrow LOL I find them fine, all adds to its character. I cruise around 60mph on it, I think any more than that may be a handful LOL Thanks for your comments Thumbs Up

Very tidy example, not quite my cuppa tea, but I do appreciate a nice tidy Guzzi - may it bring you much enjoyment
