Last Friday's 'Close Call' <grin>
« on: July 21, 2021, 02:33:02 PM »
A few years ago I jettisoned a Guzzi B-11 as I yearned for something... well... else.  This proved to be a aching mistake.  The Breva is the bike I most regret no longer having. 

With that in mind, on the way home from the lumber yard last Friday, I stopped by my semi-local Guzzi dealer, just to - you know - check things out.

I'm taking the liberty of sharing what happened...  https://thechurchoftheopenroad.blogspot.com/2021/07/last-fridays-close-call.html

Hope you get a chuckle out of it..  :laugh:

I'd much rather ask for forgiveness than ask for permission.
