First Ride on '76 Moto Guzzi

So after about five weeks in the garage due to business travel, holidays and bad weather, my new 850-T3 finally got out for a shake-down ride. Checked the tires and the oil levels and went for a 70 mile ride:





Everything works and works well. The bike lopes along with a relaxed gait, it has plenty of torque, the brakes are great, the handling is light and quick and the riding position is comfortable - what a machine!

The one I picked up in Virginia and rode home to Oregon last summer is also a 77RS, though it's registered as a 78 and is dressed as a 78S - smoke red paint job - everything. I'll post a picture of that one tomorrow. This one I found later and drove to Montana to meet the owner who came from N Dakota. Good thing I didn't try to ride it home as I usually do - the wiring harness was toast and I could have gotten into serious trouble with it. The PO didn't even know the harness had been worked on, much less butchered - I ended up replacing the complete harness. Seems there's always something to fix on a used bike. Best to count on it.

Dbl.R - Nice G/Ss! Are you selling both of them???

Wandering Dane - I like your Guzzi! I've wanted something like that for a long time. Problem I've got is I know beemers really well and would have to gear up for Guzzis. Plus I'd have to sell off some of my bikes to justify getting something else - aint gonna happen. It's a big problem!

Tvria, Yes I'm selling them both as one deal, I don't want to split things up myself. Someone else can do it or go in with a friend. I have listed them on the Flea market. - Regards, Rick

Cool rig, Cap'm! Are you and Elvis planning to attend the rally in Wyoming in July? Perhaps we can motor along together for part of the distance. SHoot me a PM. As long as we're on the subject of old school sidecar rigs, here's our newly restored 1978 Chang:

Cowboy - Nice hack! That's what they SHOULD have looked like new.

CaptRick - Is that the one from Colorado?

This is the bike I flew into Virginia this summer to ride home 3500 miles. In person it was nowhere near as nice. But it was still well worth the $2K I spent on it. Once home after replacing the triple trees due to a broken stop, the forks jammed - turned out I had a bent fork tube! No wonder it rode stiff. But I never woulda guessed a tube was bent, it wasn't that bad.

CaptRick... is that a Ural sidecar?
If so, does the spare only fit on the sidecar or will it fit the back of the BMW too?

I wish my Ural had disk brakes all around so thet the spare would work
on all three corners.

My 1993 R100R, owned since 1997. The bike in its 'normal' overloaded state, on a 5000 km trip round Victoria and South Australia. This isn't ever going to be a show bike: I intend on using it for heavy duty, all roads (almost: don't talk to be about bloody sand, road tyres and 400 kg...) touring until either it or I can't do it any more.

Progressive front springs, Wilbers rear, custom instrument panel (aluminium sheet, bent and glued with aircraft adhesive), custom rack, National Cycle screen with custom brackets and a decade's worth of trimming and repositioning until perfect, leaky pushrod seals, and just about due for a second gearbox rebuild: this time with the circlip!

I love this bike and will never sell it.

Boston got a little gift from the gods today--a sunny, 67 degree day in January. I decided to celebrate by taking my '82 Seca 650 out for an afternoon leg-stretcher. Here's how she looked standing by an iced over Charles River at day's end:



The bike is bone stock and original except for the suspension (Progressive springs up front and Ikon 7610s in the rear) and tires (Pirelli Sport Demons front and back). She is an absolute joy to ride.

Edit: Better pic.
