After an agonisingly long time away from two wheeled Italian exotica I would like to introduce my dream motorcycle I fell in love with when I visited Cobb & Jagged in Shipley all those years ago...... Already a V65 GT long term owner, and enjoying a few super bikes from the land of the rising sun, sorry, my Dad and I drove a long journey down to the outskirts of London last weekend to view/relocate this very intoxicating Red Head...... My first date today acquainting ourselves with a ride from Workington out to Keswick and a return the far side of Bassenthwaite Lake..... All very familiar roads, and I am totally smitten. A proper bike! As with most ageing Guzzis there is an increasing list of things to do.....BUT what an engine!!! So I can't help asking. Any Sport 1100 or Daytona owners frequenting the Northern parts of GB? One happy boy!!!
Regrettably my initial images will not upload...... far too much resolution? I guess that just sums up the RS!? LOL

Bizarre, I have just joined this forum and read your post. I went to Cobb & Jagger in 1995 several times to look at an 1100 Sport (carb) still got the sales brochures, but in the end I could not get on with the long throttle. Nagging desires remained and so I have just acquired an 1100 Sport Injection. I live near Preston and would love to see your bike in the flesh so to speak.

Ahhh, so you have the same affliction too!? The Sport inj was my initial choice, but it's funny how opportunity manifests it self .....What colour is your Sport? I'll be green with envy if your reply is "Yellow"!

Would be great to catch up with you with the bikes at some point. Perhaps a stop off at Devil's bridge? Something to certainly consider for the future, weather permitting obviously!

Funnily enough, she was blonde originally but her previous lover prefers goths. So she is now known as black beauty. She is currently off the road while I sort a few minor items. When are you likely to be at the bridge next, if possible I will nip up and have an envious look

Black beauty eh....How dare the previous custodian dare to dye a blonde to black!!
I keep hankering to change the Red head RS to a fairer haired temptress.....Oh no, screams from the purists I here you all say!! A yellow RS would be a sight to behold me thinks......
RS presently minus wheels and rear brake disk....I shall let you know when she returns to the ground wearing some nice new sticky black boots. 😎

Oh lord, please do not do it, that shade of hair colour is to dye for.

Black beauty had been wearing her earrings on top of her ears for a while now, one of her previous admirers must have liked a bit of Punk as well as a bit of Goth, either that or he was a bit limp wristed.

However, thanks to a Knight in shining armour from the far away Hills of Malvern, she has some proper drop bars on their way. So hopefully soon she will be properly dressed and may soon be able to go to the ball.

The lady of the Lakes, Ciao Bella.

I guess I had better get my act together now and introduce her to Black Beauty.
