    Nope, although I do quite like the look of them, they are hopelessly impractical. This is a nice practical do it all sort of bike. Made with flair and getting very favourable reviews.

    tock.

    4 days to go I hope.

    You settled on the Guzzi California then? Tick. Or maybe something even more unusual like an Aprilia?

    Bing bong....Bob got it. Guzzi V85TT in Rosso Kalahari (red and white with red frame) with panniers, top box and a few other farkles from the MG accessory catalogue. I eventually persuaded Teasdale MCs to do a deal. I think they ended up with a cancelled order so I am picking it up Friday or Saturday :ride: - whichever is forecast to be the driest day :rolleyes:


    It’s the coolest bike you ever saw -IMHO anyway. Also a great step back to lighter simpler ADV bikes.

    Tubed tyres were a consideration for a while and then I thought don’t be ridiculous, I have had two bikes with tubeless tyres, and while convenient when punctured, all my other bikes have been just great. So decided it was no great shakes and not a reason not to buy one. But, yeah, I can’t see that it would have cost MG much extra for some tubeless rims.

    There's a big difference between being cool and trying to be cool.
    Lets see if a retired civil servant dressed in Klim gear beats EMs trying too hard attempt.
