bikes: 2012 1200 Sport 4v

I needed a bike to tour with that I could use as a daily commute. I had recently sold my XJR1300 Yamaha due to the age of bike and spent a lot of time looking. The bike needed to be one that had character, went well and had a good range. I went to check out a Norge and bought the 1200 instead. It strips down to a naked but with panniers and all accesories fitted it makes a great tourer.


Martin Dalitz

Location: Blue Mounains, NSW
email: dalitz@tpg.com.au
bikes: '81 Guzzi Imola 350, '56 Guzzi Lodola 175, '81 R80G/S, Can-Ams, Metralla etc etc

I've had bikes around all my life, with lots of time spent racing and messing about in the shed. More recently I've enjoyed pottering around backroads and shortish trips away on the G/S, and the dust collects on the VMX and road racing bikes- not to mention the Imola...
I confess that I'm joining AIGOR because what I really want is a Nuovo Falcone. So if you know anyone with a spare N.F...


Rick Smith
age: 60
Location: Adelaide
email: rickman@internode.on.net
bikes: Rough looking 850 T3, XL125 Honda, 1972 GT 750 Ducati, 650 Road Rocket BSA, half a 600 Norton Dominator

I bought the T3 in London and eventually rode it back to Aus. It still gets used for commuting, touring and Frats rides.
I last sold a bike in 1978. The last one I bought was the Honda, when I needed cheap wheels.
The BSA is in bits-a retirement project?

bikes: 2013 Stelvio NTX, 2005 DL650 VStrom

I've had 30+ years of riding Japanese bikes while still admiring "others". I don't regret any of the bikes I've had (well, except for one Honda), but I finally bit the bullet and bought a Stelvio. I love it! I am now busy planning some road trips.


Graham Olsen
age: 57ish
Location: Yarra Valley, Vic
email: olyfam@tpg.com.au
bikes: California 2011

My first Guzzi, a 1987 Lemans Mk111, was an excellent jigger. I have been through the Japanese 4 cylinders collecting tickets. Age has convinced me to lean toward cruiser style bikes. Any good day becomes a great day riding.

bikes: 1200 Sport Corsa

I'll only own up to being 27 and have done for years. I work, have a family, ski, race and rally a classic BMW car. I have had a Ducati, a 650 Yamaha, 2 Suzukis, the last one being a 1200 Bandit, and I just bought a new Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport - the red and white Corsa one. I enjoy weekend country rides, one or two extended trips per year and the daily comute when sunny.

I am a air con tech. I've lived in Perth for 7 years. I am originally from Victoria. My wife is a dental nurse and we have 2 grown-up sons, one in Melb. and one with us here. When we were married I had an '82 Le Mans. It had to go so I could start building our house (shucks). But now I have another Guzzi and my heart is happy.
