Shame I couldn't be there :(  Had to wait in for someone who was buying something off me.  I finally got a Guzzi running and still can't get to a branch meet.
A tappy Guzzi is a happy Guzzi!

Went to the Staff's MGCGB meet at Norbury. lovely ride there -went the long way -Nice lot of Guzzis of various ages and types. Met some nice folk too, I think I must have been the only one there who only has one Guzzi in the garage! And yes, I like the look of the Griso too.

Very little the last couple of days.  I was going to go to the branch meet tonight but something came up :/

Turned out the mini fairing I bought won't work with my headlight / clocks so plan b - order a Puig screen.  Improved the clock mounting bracket.  I sort of like it being one-sided, the bike isn't symmetrical so theres no need for the clock mount to be.

Oh and I added some spunky reflective wheel tape on the right side only (to offset the single side exhaust).  I'm told wheel tape adds 5hp, 10mph top speed, an extra gear (probably a neutral...) and takes 2 clicks off the rebound!


A tappy Guzzi is a happy Guzzi!

Used my Breva to get to work today. I only live a mile away and usually walk, but of course I had to go the long way just to warm the engine up.

I had cause to do this on Monday. Wet roads - what the hell do we do here now? Gentle braking and cornering seemed to be the answer.

Had a great Sunday exploring the back roads in Norfolk and Suffolk, the place looks wonderful in this sunshine and it's full of roads that the V7 loves Smile

On the way home, gagging for a cuppa I happened across this great little cafe on the B1107 Thetford Road in Brandon, close to Thetford Forest. Biker friendly and, well, just very friendly. Nice tea too Thumbs Up

Today?  Back to work...

And if you fancy lido swimming then Woodhall Spa is well worth a try. Last time I went (last Mon) I was treated to a practise display from the BBMF Thumbs Up

The Falcone, to me, embody the flair and innovation of Guzzi. A work of art, a pleasure to behold, a Pearl among the...... well, you get my drift!
Wonderful.
Big smile

Well the Triumph pretty much gets rolled out once a year for a European trip and get's ignored the rest of the time.  It's just a bike - very competent but not very interesting.

We can agree on the Falcone!  I had a ride round the New Forest today on the way to Sammy Millers and I have to say it's just lovely in that environment - 40-50mph on country lanes, bonk bonk bonk.  Anyone who suffers from stress or anxiety should own one.SmileSmile

125mph with no screen is as hard as I expected.  I couldn't quite get the Griso up to her redline 130mph.  I need to get my mini fairing painted and fitted!

You also need to book a track day and keep your boy racer antics off the public highway!
