Glen,

A1 used to be the Melbourne Moto Guzzi dealer. I bought my first Guzzi from them 20 years ago, spare parts, servicing, etc. Didn't have any issues. Presumably they still have some old stock to sell.

Glen,

That's a good deal - if it was me I'd get on the blower straight away, before some other bastard does...

Ouch! What did you hit?

Did you manage to stay upright?

Glad it wasn't worse!

"" It was a thee lane highway....had been passing someoine, due to the amount of traffic ahead, suddenly saw "something" ön the road, but too late to avoid.
Big bang, head shakes, wobbles......

Only saw it about 1 second before I hit it, maybe a brick or something of simiar size.
Ended up riding about 4 kms to work with a flat tyre, and if you have done it, you will know, the bike does not like turning with a flat front tyre.
