Both bikes are on the red plate scheme. The Guzzi is fully rebuilt in cafe racer style and being run in. The OK Supreme was fully restored but seized on annual club rally, so is currently on a stand being rebuilt as time permits. I have Bipolar disorder but function reasonably with medication. I also own a 1985 Ferrari Mondial on red plates. I work part time for a training organisation doing web pages, policies & procedures etc.
Tired of being on the back and seven years ago, decided I liked the view from the front a whole lot better. Well behaved sometimes, would rather ride than clean house. Mouth of a dockside sewer rat on Saturdays between 3 and 5 pm, otherwise fairly socially acceptable. Shiny brand new Guzzisti.
I enjoy riding motorbikes and have done all my life. My wife, Hayley and i travel by preference on a bike. We recently towed a camper trailer behind the wing around Tazzy last Xmas and had a ball using the camper as a base and touring the country on the wing. We rode a Stelvio through Turkey some 3 years ago and that is where i experienced the rush on a Guzzy and after coming back to Australia searched for a bike. The Stelvio is a bike that really suits my riding style and i cant wait to get it on a track day. The last one i took the Wing on was at Warwick out from Brisbane and enjoyed it immensely, obviously not the fastest but still a great experience. The Wing and camper are currently on the market at Bikesales.com if anyone is interested. Cheers Patto
I'm an avid motorcyclist. I have ridden extensively throughout Southeast Asia and Europe on a Guzzi. My wife travels with me as a pillion, though she has just taken her first lesson to obtain her own licence. If she is successful, she wants to get a V7.
My first bike was a 2010 250 Suzi L. My first real bike is a 2012, Bellagio - most fun I've had sitting down since the lap dance.
