Very excited to be collecting a Breva 750 tomorrow after three decades away from biking..... and consequently looking for a pair of engine bars (just in case!) if anyone is selling.

Hi and welcome from a fellow Notts Guzzirider Big smile

Like you I came back to (motor) bikes after a 30 year break. I did a refresher course and after a couple of steady rides it was like I'd never been away.
If you're at all uncertain I'd definitely recommend a refresher course - I certainly found it useful, even though I'm used to cycling on the road.

If you'd like to meet other Guzzi owners there are a few local-ish monthly meets; they're all a friendly bunch:
Notts & Derby at Coddington.
Leics at Shepshed.
Warks at Wolvey (maybe work up to that one!).

Coddington's a nice steady ride from Bridgeford, whether that's East or West.

Incidentally I've got a pair of pannier frames for a 750 Breva in the garage, drop me a PM if they're of any use/interest...

Enjoy!
Pete.

Hi Tom! Welcome from a relatively new member. Great people on here. Very friendly and helpful. Makes owning a Moto Guzzi a pleasure.

Enjoy the stay.

Hi Pete,

This is David (Bridgford Biker's other half)...

We met up a few times at the Vat & Fiddle.

When the Breva has its new starter motor,

Let's all get together for a pint (or whatever)
