2 Guzzis riding in Westcott, near Dorking, yesterday around 12:30. One was a V7, the other I could not identify but from the sound it was a Guzzi. 
Anyone from this forum?

Another sighting today about 2.30pm.
A487 Coast road in Wales heading south toward Aberaeron.
Maroon 850GT loop with a Laverda and two other bikes.
I was in the car going the other way and didn't get the chance to see if it was Dave or Phil on a ride out from the ILOC rally.

Hi John, 'twas me. We were on our way to the diesel engine museum with which I believe you are involved. Your name came up in conversation
A jolly good museum it is too. We spent a couple of hours in there which really wasn't enough. The rally was good as always and the weather could hardly have been better. I spotted a nice green V7 Sport in Rhayader which I thought at first was Glawster's, but on closer inspection, it wasn't shiny enough.

No, it wasn’t me in Rhyader Dave, but I was in Wales today and by a strange co-incidence I bumped into V7 John at the Steel Horse Cafe near Abergavenny!  Must meet and catch up with you sometime.  Cheers, Derek

It's good to see all these old 40+ year old bikes out and about and being used (and the government says historic vehicles don't do any mileage!)

Glawster's V7Sport is very shiny. Mine isn't. it's currently covered in road muck.

I was driving (yes ok, a car) north on the A1 yesterday on my way to take daughter to a university open day when, somewhere north of Newark a bunch of adventure bikes overtook us. Must have been about 8.15 am.

Anyway, one was a Stelvio, it sounded lovely compared to the others. Anybody on here ?

5/6 Grisos (is that a wurd?) heading north at a rapid pace on the A77 near Ayr. Anybody here?

Sighted near Chelmsford on Sunday afternoon, around 6:30 PM (perhaps later).
 
Beautiful Guzzi V7, black, and my Spada made a couple of km along the same B road. Bike had a beautiful sound with rather small exhausts, also she had a "creatively" inclined registration number. Rider and myself greeted, then rode a couple of miles overtaking each other a couple of times.
 
Nice to see as there aren't many Guzzis around and I am happy when I spot one for a second coming from the other direction; this time it was in full view for several minutes, and very nice sound.
