Just for a change

Post by Alan H »

I went out & bought a Moto Guzzi V85TT Travel yesterday.
Well, I was allowed to make the executive decision after making sure SWMBO was comfy on the back. :up:
Main reason for the new addition is that we (four couples worth of us) are going to the WW2 Normandy landings sites & museums next year, and I didn't fancy doing it on a 50 + year old bike and anyway, the last time I bought a new 'un was back in 1972. Pick it up in a couple of weeks when we get back from our next jaunt.....

Think of how stupid the average person is, then realise that half of them are more stupid than that.

That looks a real treat. But you may have to get an 'air-seat' for 'er indoors.

Well, she said it fits, so it fits. No second chance.....
Too late anyhoo - the money's paid. :)

Pick it up (or having it delivered - depending on the weather). I don't want to ride it home on brand new tyres in the snow...... :roll:
