The Mille's my second Guzzi, the first was a 850T. I've changed it's appearance quite radically by fitting heaps of earlier parts, clip-ons, single seat, etc.
Interested in techinial info and locating spares.
I have nearly completed a respray and tidy up on my Guzzi. It was white but now it is red. I will be setting up a new web page soon. Plenty of pics as well.
The Cali is my first Guzzi, purchased in 2002. I blame my brother who bought a 2002 Cali EV Anniversary model, and I couldn't resist. Previously only mucked around on dirt bikes, so the Cali was a big step. I love it and riding it is the most pleasurable thing I can do by myself. I said I wouldn't ride it to work, but sometimes, you just have to fire it up, and throw the suit and tie in the pannier, and pretend it's the weekend.
I've been a rider off and on since I was 20. Have owned Jap bikes from 250's up to Kwaka Z1R's and current cruisers. Participated in all the big motorcycle awareness rides of the 80's. The Guzzi is my first European motorcycle. Love to ride it but service and quality control are very, very average. Ulyssian (junior member).
Have been riding bikes since 1967, on the road since 1973. Have travelled aust on a bike, 4 years in one hit. Still travel as work allows. Built from scratch a drag racer and land speed bike and set records. Love any form of motorcycling. Member Italian m/c club Tas Have bush block suitable for camping for travelling motorcyclists.
I have 2 LeMans III; A silver 81 and a white 83, both in original condition. I have had the 83 since new and picked it up at the factory. The 81 I have had for a year and it is my everyday, take to the shops, go to work bike. It's only claim to fame is on the night I picked it up from the transporter I ran over an echidna and stuffed the front tyre full of quills.
The 850GT is 90% back to original, completely reconditioned throughout and an absolute beast of a machine to cruise on. The Honda is pretty Ho-Hum by comparison.
