    We drug her home Sunday and she went right to the lift.
    She needs a little "laying on of the hands".
    I will post pix as the strip down progresses.

    Blimey that bike is far too clean!:eek1 Has it ever actually seen a road? I would be scared to own a bike that clean.

    This is how a Guzzi should look, like it is used and loved...

    Surely it can only go down hill from here on in. Seriously, what's wrong with it? What a neat bike.
