I might go but one Guzzi is hemorrhaging oil from the drive box, one is up on a bench where it's been for 1.5 years, and the last possibilty (60 years old..) has its head currently off. Oh well..Cry

So the one on the bench donates its' bevel and off you go.  Simples!

I think I'll be mostly drinking coffee and nursing what they call a hangover that would kill a civvy!

Sorry Guzzitano that maybe we didn't get to meet you. It's not that it's an organised thing. Few of us there though, the one and only Min on his well travelled G5, me on my S3, Dan on his 1000S, Ado on his, er, BMW, Bushymusic on his neat C&H (judging by his number plate) Le Mans 2 with rare silencers, Oldrat on his lovely Zagato special, and no doubt a few more. What bike were you down there on? My S3 was running bee-autifully, to the point that I fell in love with it again, and demanded that some kind of silly fast boy kit car got out of my way in the fast lane of the M40 on the way home. Hooligan!

Adam, you just done me an enormous favour....I was trying to put names to faces to handles to bikes... if you know what I mean.

Now I'm sorted

Great to see you guys, some old faces many new faces too. Sorry I didnt get to meet you Guzzitano, my method is that I tend to wander up to people with Guzzis or Guzzi tee shirts/ badges and ask if they use the guzzi forums. I obviously missed you, but as Adam says, its not in any way an organised guzzi meeting. Hope to have another chance soon. 

There were some bikes that touched me..Adam's S3 and his mate Dan's 1000s, Bushey Music's lovely Black and Gold mk2 and the three orange and silver Laverda Jotas..I just love those old 180s.

Hope you all got home safely

Saw your Zagato, what a cracking bike and some lovely little features when you look closely.

No worries; there'll be other times I'm sure.

Left Peterborough at 10:00 and was parked up against the back fence next to the red Galetto (I think) and a nice Jota at 11:20. Came down on the Aquila Nera with grandson Number 1 riding pillion.

Nice day.

Was impressed with the Zagato, nice bike. The Le Mans brought back some memories.

Hope you all returned  home  safe and well.
