    Hello Folks

    As the title says, I have pulled the plug on my Moto Guzzi rental business in New Zealand. The website has been shut down.

    It wasn't a hard decision to make. I haven't had any rentals for over two years, and Covid-19 effectively shut all borders.

    I even strayed from the marque, adding an Indian FTR1200S and a Chief to the stable. I hope to sell off some of my Guzzis when summer arrives (but no sign of that at the moment).

    I will still lurk here, and can be contacted through Guzzigander@gmail.com.

    All the best for the future

    Dave Gale

    Sorry to hear Dave. Mine has been "soft closed" for about the same time, but mostly due to the rental "apps" where people rent their personal bikes out for pennies on the $. So much risk on both ends with these "services" but people don't seem to care. I'll see if it's worth trying again with once the COVID mess clears.
    I too have tried other brands with little success, and the V85TT went out a total of 3 times in 1 year. Not worth having.
