    The Moto Guzzi Club of Victoria has loaded its first container of Guzzis, bound for the Teo Lamers premises in Nijmegan, Netherlands.

    At TLM, we'll be reassembling the bikes before joining the TLM tour to Mandello in September, then members will spend some weeks touring Europe. The bikes will return to Nijmegan to be recrated and home, hopefully, by Christmas.

    A second container leaves shortly, totaling 40 bikes. The riders and pillions fly out in the first week of September. It's been a big project requiring a lot of coordination and organising. (We're coming incognito - we sourced bike crates from a local Triumph dealer).

    Wonderful stuff.

    Very much look forward to the "rest of the story," replete, of course with pix galore.

    Also glad you chose Nijmegen, and not a bridge too far. ;)

    Best,

    Bill

    WOW! Looks like quite an adventure. I see you also had your security dog overseeing the crating operation

    And they're off! The 2nd container load of riders and pillions on their Moto Guzzi's will now negotiate riding on the right hand side of the European roads as they make their way to the birthplace of the factory at Mandello del Lario on the shores of Lake Como.
