I've only just found this forum - no idea how I've missed it until now as it seems to be the most comprehensive Guzzi forum around.  Thanks for adding me.
Anyway, I'm based in Gloucestershire in England and I really like my old banger Guzzis.  Here's a few photos taken locally.

With that nice Falcone, you should also consider joining the discussion forum for 'Guzzi-Singles' (need the hyphen) over on Google Groups.  Several UK members there.  Let me know if you have any trouble to register.

Welcome.  You have all the bases covered there Glawster (not Glou-cester, or a more Home Counties Glossta, of course).  I'll take the red one thanks  :thumb:.

Nice riding country on your doorstep.

Patrick,
Yes, I'm on the Guzzi singles forum.  I'm the guy who sent you the English translations of the Singles manuals.

No, I don't think so.  I bought it from Made In Italy Motorcycles.  Italian registered and it spent a bit of time in California in a showroom but was never sold.  I've fancied one since I was 14.  Only took my another 45 years to get around to buying one...

Hi Glawster.

Hi John,
Yes, I remember we met last year at the Steel Horse Cafe one lunchtime.

Stuv65 - we're neighbours.  Send me a pm if  you fancy meeting up to put the Guzzi world to rights.
