Has Michael contacted you Ranga?

We have had a couple of text messages. He is busy for a few days, as am I.
His bike will be the first I look at and hopefully the last.

to some point it is a blend of a few bikes, the handling is probably on par or better than the Z and is comfortable like sporty cruiser and looks of a cafe racer.
The best thing about these guzzis is they have reasonably serious mumbo. I dragged a VTR1000 and 95 Blade the other day and they couldnt pass (their words)

I'm sure plenty will pass, but not that time. If they did, it would only be a flesh wound to my pride Very Happy

Things are progressing well. Not especially quickly but well. I am a student again on Monday(I turn 60 this year).
That will slow us down a little more. But it is happenning.

The ride back was good. Bungendore, Canberra, Cooma. Cann River Princes Hwy  straight through Gippsland to Melbourne and then to home in Geelong.

Daylight temps in the Mid to High 30s Centigrade. Lowest in the wee small hours heading in towards Pakenham were in the low 20s Centigrade. No rain, minimal smoke from the bushfires in Gippsland.
No signs of the constabulary fortunately. She goes alright.I had a few naps along the way. I would just pull over in a picnic area and have a wee nap on a picnic table.
The GRiSO ran beautifully and rode magnificently. I was happy with a @800KM ride.
