Keen follower of the cult and avid protector of the faith (MG). Have only been in the brotherhood for 2 years and thoroughly enjoy myself on the highways and byways up here in the FNQ. My bikes in very good nick and I intend to keep it that way. Mods are limited to electrical upgrades.
I work as a fire man in Katoomba. I'm married with five kids which keeps me kinda busy, but still get out sometimes. Usually only to work and back but hey.
Grew up with the usual Jap bikes then 1975 Ducati GT860, nice but bloody troublesome. Always wanted this Guzzi, rare and interesting. Also a reliable old girl -how bizarre for Italian!!
I adore my Guzzis; they are both good handlers and performers and the race version surprises a lot of people on the track with its performance. It's been very cheap to race, gets the occasional podium and apparently sounds awesome.
Bought my first Guzzi two weeks ago. Very tired LM Mk3 needing lots of love. Have never ridden one, but the more I read and the more I work on it the more I like it. At last, a bike built to be fixed. Not thrown away. Bearings in standard sizes, parts available. Friendly people happy to give advice. Its all good!
Italain, Guzzis and Laverdas, lots of jap bikes in the past. Love riding the east coast of Tas on the days off, with or without the rain.
I`m a long-time motorcyclist beginning with a BSA Bantam at age 14, and have owned some 35 machines, including a T4, Cali 11, Le Mans 11. My current ride is a JZR cyclecar, which is similar to a Morgan three-wheeler, and not unlike the English Triking you may be more familiar with. JZRs are also made in England, mine is a 1993 build machine, and was originally powered with a Honda CX500. When I got hold of it some 7-8 years ago it had a CX650 in it, which I replaced with an 850 T3 engine, and more recently with an SP 1000 unit and transmission. She goes OK, with a max of over the ton (MPH), and cruises easily at 120k`s. I need the extra wheel these days following a prang in '92.
I've had my Guzzi for over ten years, older restoration. I only ride occasionally these days. The bike's on club rego.
One of those blokes that's had a keen interest in bikes (mainly of the 70's) since he was a kid but never pursued seriously until recent years. The LeMans II (Mark I look-alike) is the pride and joy. The other projects for fun when time permits. More time for riding? Wouldn't that be great!
G'day. My name's Chris Rae. I'm from Grenfell NSW. I have been a Guzzi owner for 15 years now. I put 300,000 k's on my Mille GT. It was a nice bike but it wouldn't pull a greased stick out a dogs arse though. That was easy fixed; I bought a smashed LeMans 5 and swaped donks. Now it will. They are such shitboxes but god I love 'em. 4 years ago I bought a BM gs1100 although a better bike in almost every way, the damn thing has got no soul. I can't love it, I can apreciate the functionality of the thing and everything works and it doesn't turn my spine to chalkdust, but where's the love people? Where's the love? I will be a Guzzihead forever. Most Guzziheads are a bit fucked in the noggin too which I can dig. I'm usually the drunkest bastard at the rally although Helen and Phil always offer stiff competition.
