Hello there - I'm Stewart Ellinson from Otley, west yorkshire. Longtime member of MGOCUK (formerly!) and also formerly marque specialist for the benelli based models (when we had such things!). Now down to four Guzzis from an all time high of twenty something.

I'm almost better!

Actually strangely I spotted a Benelli at the weekend a four stroke model with 6 silencers, strangely as it was the second six cylinder bike I spotted at the weekend, the other was a CBX at Hartside cafe!

Welcome, I am a mere amature owning only 4 guzzi's myself,

Though I do have a similar bike to the Benelli two strokes, as I have a RD250e, which must have been a competitor!

Hi Stewart! I'm hoping to acquire my first Guzzi (and first bike in a decade) in the next few weeks!

Also, Harrogate!

Hi, I'm in north Leeds. Have you heard of the Rhubarb triangle?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhubarb_Triangle
Well maybe Stuart, Mark and I, (Otley, Harrogate and Leeds) could create the Yorkshire Guzzi triangle?LOL
 
 
I've only got 2.5 Moto Guzzis! The half is in my loft awaiting being built.
 
Mark which Guzzi are you buying?

ReggieV - dunno yet! Wanting a classic old farts bike rather than a newer one though. Ideally something I could ride this summer then work on over winter with son#1.

So to recap - I got a Mille which I've now traded for a Griso - so much for having a plan to do up the Mille!

We really should organise a Guzzisti meetup - just as soon as it warms up a bit!
