G'day everyone. Years ago I had a CD250 in those lovely Norton colours, which I quite enjoyed but as it just couldn't keep up with my mate's Ducati (not in this universe) I had plants for a Pantah and a Guzzi California. Then met my (now) wife etc you know how it goes. Anyway I still dream of getting another bike. I'm a bigt fan of Moto Guzzis and have always wanted a California. A mate of mine recently bought a Triumph Thruxton and modded it even more - its now a real cafe racer ! Then I saw a Guzzi V7 cafe and am quite intrigued by that.... Hmm where to get $15K ? I like the look of this too but suspect the Guzzi purists would disapprove of any such fettling to a Le Mans III. My Dream Bike ? (money no object) a Ducati green frame 750SS. Nice. What else am I into ? 4wd'ing and hunting. So yes I stay poor most of the time ! Cheers everyone !
