Same same...(but different).
« on: December 02, 2021, 02:28:58 AM »
Did a quiet 1000 k on the Norge over two days in an attempt to get it to 199,000 before shipping to London.
I want to turn over 200,000 at the anniversary.

But I saw this in the street at Kinglake,


it’s the same as mine but....”different”.
Have any of y’all come across an identical bike to your own and snapped a photo of them both ?
Here’s another example..

Cool! :thumb: Unless I went to an Anniversario convention, it's probably not going to happen.

I have come across 2 bronze Vespas, though. One is a club member, and the other was a random sighting at a motorcycle show. From what I've been told, the color was only used '12 & '13, and isn't common.

Yeah GG.
The Norge encounter was like bumping into an old friend that I’ve never met.

It was in 2016...was on a trip from Texas to Oregon for the Guzzi National Rally in John Day, Oregon.

Had arrived in Idaho, of all places a town called Twin Falls, and lo and behold, here was my twin riding in on his Silver Norge.  Quite the coincidence, right place, right time!

I found a pic of the "triplets" I took from Gathering of Eagles 2018.
