I have owned quite a few bikes over the years including a Ducati 750 GT and an 860. I also had the pleasure of owning Moto Guzzis, my last one was a Mark 3 Le Mans that I had for 6 years. I rode it around Australia and had a great time on it. I then bought a Yamaha FJR 1300 as Jenny my wife wanted to come along. I had that for 8 years, but always missed the Guzzi. When they brought out the new Guzzi Stelvio we both loved its handling and its 'two up' comfort was great. It also allowed us to do some dirt roads which there are a lot of around where we live. We brought it two weeks ago and have done 1000 k's - all looking good.
I've had my Guzzi for over a year. Shortly after getting it I rode it from Brisbane to Adelaide and have just moved to Newcastle. I am keen to meet some other riders and find places to ride.
The V50 was the first bike I bought after getting off my learner's restictions. Anders at Eurotune Motorcycles rebuilt the gearbox. The owner decided to sell and I bought it. I am a part owner of Eurotune Motorcycles which was a Moto Guzzi dealer at that time, around 1986 and remained a Guzzi dealer for 18 years. It is still is a great bike.
I have recently returned to the fold. I'm slowly reviving a bike that has sat for about 8 years but is very original and so far so good with most bits working ok.
I'm 66ish and retired from a varied career from 6 years in the army to 23 years of nursing in the intellectual disability field. My wife and I have toured the eastern states extensively. One trip took us to Cape Tribulation in F.N Q. and took 5 weeks; OUR KIDS HOPED THAT WE WOULD HAVE A GOOD TIME BUT THEY DID'NT CONDONE IT. P . off. Anyway, I'm after some advice on replacement rear shockies and any recommendations for a suitable windscreen. I've heard differing views about Eagle screens and was wondering if anyone has had experience with them? I would like to hear of others experiences and stories.
l have 4 kids and 1 very cute grand daughter who is 5 months old. I have worked in the health profession for the past 19 years. I love my work. In the past l have owned a Kawasaki 900, my first road bike, a '45 Harley, an '82 Sturgis, 750 Norton Commando, and a MK3 Guzzi which was my last bike. When my kids were little l decided to stop riding as l wanted to be around to see them grow up. Now all the kids have grown up and moved on, my mate has sold me his MK1 1000 and l'm back on the road. It is great to be back on the road.
I have ridden all my life on K9 ,Dukes , Trumps , Hogs, +++, and only Guzzis for the last 20+ years now. I didn't know that there were others out there really, certainly not this mob. I am a social member of our Frats MG group here in Adelaide. I love riding Guzzis and I love the characters who ride them, the Friends of the Historical Guzzi Mmuseum at Peterborough, Sth. Aust. Please visit when you are going through....Cheers 'n' Ride well!!!!
After a long list of Motorcycle makes I finally purchased my Norge in 2011. I am 57 yrs old and been riding for around 40 yrs. I can’t believe that I have been around for so long to discover Guzzi because really I couldn’t imagine owning any other road bike now. My partner and I rode down to Tasmania This year and what a fantastic trip that was. That was my 4th trip to Tassie in 6 years the other 3 times on a Suzuki SV 1000. Great bike but no comparison to the Norge for that type of riding particularly since this time we were 2 up. Go Guzzi.
I have a 2000 Jackal with only 11,000 kms. I also have a ‘95 Cali 1100i with 640,000 kms on it. I can account for all of these k’s. I have stripped the Jackal down & put all the good stuff on my ole girl (95 Cali) Still on the original motor but have taken the gearbox & diff out of the Jackal. Have also fitted the Jackal front end , tank,side covers,guards & wheels, seat & custom backrest/rack & ECU onto the ole Cali.
