23 years old me in Munich. Bought the V50 in Jersey (Channel Islands) rode it around France, Berlin, Italy, Yugoslavia, Greece, Turkey is a big place, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Egypt, Sudan, Egypt, Israel over a period of 2 years. Sold it in Israel for more than I paid for it.
Heres one at Gorey Castle in the Channel Islands - spent 9 months there. I had an Olympus trip camera and was too tight to buy film and spent all my film taking photos of girls. Heading up to Berlin from Munchen via the east I met some german girls who were riding sportsters (back from fruit picking in Italy) they lent me warm clothes and I stayed with them for 3 weeks - quite an education. I was fresh out of an apprenticeship came home and went back to school. Life changing. I felt so stupid most of the time!
Ya kidding, what a beautiful kickofff.

My first bike after passing my test (at 21) was an 850 T3 which amongst other things I rode to Nodcap (Norway) on in August 1991 ........ It was arduous and bastard cold (waaay colder than we expected). When we got there someone had built a new visitor centre around the nordcap statue/monument and wanted to charge us a motza to get in. I spat it and refused but the guy I was with was determined we were going to have a photo and insisted on paying me in.
You'll have to forgive the GPZ fairing I grafted on to it - but it was a life saver in the shit weather. The second photo has tape on the headlight after I threw it down a road embankment when I lost concentration on one of the many long / slow / cold days of riding. We picked up all of the parts and took it to the next town and put it all back together with tape and a big monkey wrench the people in the servo lent to us.
I got a Le man mk5 after that, but when I got smoked by all the 600's on my first visit to the TT I soon off loaded it.
It was my Dads bike before I had it and he also had a Mille and put really nice alloy tanks on both. I vividly remember him running back into the flat just as he was setting off for the ferry on a tour round Europe with his new magnetic tank bag that he'd suddenly realised wasn't much use on an Alloy tank. Then trying to stuff all the contents into his panniers. Oh how we laughed...
Ned, who's collection is this?
I have herd of a very large 400 + guzzi collection over east. Leo's. Is it his?
No we are a bit further north. Between Sydney and Newcastle.
Teo Lamers? He was the world's largest Guzzi retailer, in Holland, but made the move to rural Vic about 15 years ago. Now he's established the "Cathedral of Moto Guzzi" on his farm in Yea.
Yes that's who I was referring to. The infamous Toad from over here was telling me about his collection. Toad went there to buy one or two of his bikes recently. Even he, who owns 500 bikes was gobsmacked !
How to book a tour of this Guzzi collection?
