    Not everyone's first choice, especially here, but hey there's a little gravel riding to keep you interested.

    Stay well everyone:

    Really liked that Nick. True statement about new machines needing a tow truck and older ones are roadside fixable ...

    Keep it sunny side up ...

    Nice one Nick,

    Something so simplistic as old style carbs and electrics must be a joy to ride.
    Hope you have many happy miles ahead.

    Thanks folks. There are the downsides, of course, but I've found that if you treat them as part of the adventure, they're never so bad.

    Tony - it took me a while to get away from Moto Gussy or Guzzzy, but I've finally mastered it. I did get a bit of a bollocking from one of the older and well-established Guzzi guys over my pronunciation of 'Nuovo' (when I had a Nuovo Falcone). Apparently it's NewOvo, not NewVo as I had it. Got to keep those Italians happy :thumbsupanim:.

    Nick

    Well Nick, you're and Ad Executives (oxygen thieves all) nightmare - and good for you. Long live not going out to buy the latest of anything. :thumbsupanim:

    You've clearly found a bike that suits you down to the ground, even though it's not perfect. But hey, that's the character of the bike.
