It's the middle of November, so ride reports in this part of the planet are getting more scarce, so trust I may be forgiven for this post being GRiSO-less.  Sad

Wait a minute.  There is a glimpse of my GRiSO in at least one pic, so this is not entirely devoid of GRiSO content!   Wink

So, a Guzzi friend in Rochester, N.Y., has a wife who is as indulgent as my Kathi.  She and their daughters surprised Bob 10 years ago on his 60th birthday with a new Guzzi.  They recently reprised that gift with another on Bob’s latest.  Priceless!  cheers

Guzzista and N.J. friend, Nick, and I saw this as an opportunity and excuse for a road trip.  After all, a new Moto Guzzi must be blessed with Grappa!   Thumbs Up

So, Nick and I rode from here at the top of Virginia to Rochester this past Sunday, spent Monday in area, and came home on Tuesday.

We were blessed ourselves with some incredibly fine weather on all three days, but were sure glad we got home before yesterday’s drenching rain.

But, of course, you ache for the pix.  

The link opens in what Smugmug calls “collage landscape,” which means you can see all of the pix at once.  And, if you care, hover your cursor over a pic to see the captions.  Some captions are truncated in the wee pix, so — again, if you care ;-) — open the guilty photo to see the full comment.

Blessing Guzzis in Rochester

1921!

Bill

P.S.  For the nervous “Kovid Keepers” out there, know that, with occasional exceptions, Nick, I, and the others followed the rules in public.  Well, OK, with the possible exception of our actual invasion of New York State without a C-test! :-)

Thanks Bill, great photos and story (as always) but did miss pix of the GRiSO on the road!

Blessing Guzzis in genuine grappa? My inner guzzisti is very much split on that subject! Shocked

Bill, this batch of pics seems better in some way than some of your other collections. Perhaps the weather/sky condition/sun angle, new camera, different approach you take with the task perhaps? I don't know, but whatever it is I sure enjoy your trips. Maybe I could retire one day and come that way and join in.
Thanks for your input on the Dart screen a couple of weeks ago. It's much more than I expected and I never considered the difference in aero would affect the handling like it does. Magnifico.
Cheers
