Still love my XS650's but will be buying a Guzzi [850/1100?], next year - for towing the trailer
Found the 650's too light in power for towing purposes, or is it that Bev just likes too many creatures comforts when we go away together?
Going to hang onto the two [650's], I've got registered & on the road, but might knock out two or three to finance my existing projects,

1969 L5T, 100cc, high/low ratio gearbox, 12volt system with an electric start!, first bike I learnt to ride on [not this one]

Gotta get this going again too, 1989 Argo 6x6 Amphibious, a whole lotta fun, used it when I was a fencing contractor, use to get us into some real rough country that most other fencers never went.
So that's a little of what I'm up to, I'll still be posting on here though, next rally is 20/21 Oct - down in Victoria @ Edi, 'Spaghetti Rally' - Moto Guzzi rally but a great bunch of people to party with!
Cheers

Wico, roger that, plenty of photos when I get one!
Only looking around @ this stage, last one I had was back in the '70's,

'74 850T, did plenty of miles on that old beast, metric conversion didn't happen in Australia 'til 1975, so speedo was in MPH
So I'm just sussing out what's available & at what price
Cheers

I'll second that enquiry & add extra curiousity as well

Heaps of choices out there, finding retro stuff is neat but be careful of some fibreglass, gets very brittle with age, old Craven panniers are bloody good stuff,

RJays topbox & Aussie-made fibreglass panniers [unsure of brand]

Ask & you will receive, only took a fraction of what you can see
probably spend half a day with photos if you were keen

Not sure, haven't checked out any others for awhile, would go close I'd reckon,
the museum @ Bathurst has mainly race bikes but is nothing the size of this one, few others about but not sure how big,
I'll ask on the Aussie page & see who bites on it!!
