Back home in Wisconsin as of 0100 this morning. Had a swell time! Randy and his gang really did it right.
Even came home with a prize





A wonderful bike indeed!  I enjoyed seeing it and hearing it run.  I would enjoy hearing more about the bike's history, if known.

Still here in NH.  Returning eagle to it's home today.  Yesterday we returned Jim Hamlin's table lift and assorted other stuff.

Thanks for all your help Tom and also Randy, Jim and everyone else who helped make this happen!

We got home late yesterday afternoon.  Thanks to all the folks who worked so hard to make the rally happen for the rest of us, Doug and I had a great time.  Wish we'd been able to put more names to faces, but there's always the next rally.  Thanks again!

Good to meet you.  Sorry couldn't spend more time with you.  A lot of people that I have not seen in 6 years.  Hopefully someone will sponsor next year's National Rally.😱

Pictures of other interesting bikes I saw.  I hope the owners don't mind, I'll take them down.
            

Love the cap locks!  How do you drive this?  So many levers, so little time.

A bit overdue excise taxes:


The most Guzzi I've ever seen in one place (view from food trailer, left to right).
         
Many more not shown behind the barns.  My father would be proud.

I was pleasantly surprised to see many V85TT.  I like the added front fender and I wonder if the color matching sticker comes with it.


I am still telling people about this rally, one week later.  Maybe it's the sense of adventure suggested by the bike/tent pairs.  Well, back to reality now.

Gerry, I don't know I missed you but I hate that I did. Dirk, you may be on to something...

Sarah

Well, you'll have to post up a pic of yourselves so I can see if I did meet you. 

If you did stop by in the moto garage to pick up a t-shirt or sign up for a demo ride I most likely was around unless I was running an errand for Jim.

I do not remember seeing a V9 at the rally.

Me too! What a cool gathering, eh?! You must have snapped those pics Thursday or Friday, I didn't roll in until late Friday, camped over by that little foot bridge.

Definitely looking forward to catching some other rallies!

Very nice! Looks like a good time was had by all. I aspire to be able to take the time to go to these things after my life (kids/wife/parents/work) are able to function on their own or no longer require me to be involved.
Would need to do some test runs on the V7III for motocamping, maybe south Alabama or Georgia---

Todd-- Was that you on the nice Milano?  Doug and I stopped by and we chatted a little.

gerryp-- You may not have recognized the V9, we've outfitted it with a V7 tank.

Don't remember exactly, but between Friday and Saturday. Bikes pix on Sunday.
Rallies and morning rides, here I come!  Oh yeah, gotta fix my bike first.  :rolleyes:

Ah, yes, Sarah! I remember talking to you two! Pretty sure Doug has a new V85-TT, we were talking a bit about mapping, exhaust, etc? I never got to see your bikes, didn't realize that you had a V7 tank on a V9, that is EXACTLY what I would do. I couldn't take a guess how many Geese I saw over those few days, but I didn't catch a glimpse of a single V9, to my knowledge. A little bit surprising. It frankly makes me want to grab a ride on one. Especially after reading several posts from Kevin here extolling the the virtues of that V9 motor.
Hoping to see more of you all at future rallies! I'm afraid I'm going to have to insist that you all wear name tags...sorry...😁




A pic before taking off from VT. First ever moto-camping trip for the Milano, AND for me. I did ok not over-packing, mostly, except for that stupid garbage bag there with my leather jacket in it. Couldn't make up my mind on the leather or the mesh, so brought both.

This was a great rally for first timers.  They’re usually much smaller, with 30-100 attendees.  Hopefully the rally bug bit you, it’s fun and you make life long friends.

After rally post.  Settling in to being back into Hawaii.  Making plans for Datil, NM.  Long flight Honolulu to Boston and back.  Like going to Europe from the West Coast.  2 flights and I can be anywhere in the world.   :grin:

Randy will be submitting an article for the MGNOC newsletter with details of the rally.  Most that attendees are from the NE.  An anecdotal observation is that he MGNOC National Rally is more of a large regional rally.  Rumors are that that someone has volunteered to sponsor it next year.

A lot of first time Moto Guzzi owners showed up and a lot of first time rally goers too.  Hopefully they will want to go to state rallies to expand their horizons and maybe next year's National.   :thumb:

Well I for one am looking forward to attending more of these! Would love to be in position to make a trip to New Mexico, and other long-distance rallies, but likely will end up staying regional this season. Here's a shot showing some of the very cool bling from the Nat!

Randy said that he saved about 400 $2 bills for the rally.   :laugh:
