    Hill CLimbing a Moto Guzzi LeMans... ! :blink: I am going to try and make the event to shoot it and or video his runs...!

    Radzo...






    If anybody is in the area of Monson, Ma. on April 19th 2009, I'll be hill climbing my 1985 Moto Guzzi Lemans in it's first hill climb competition. They call the hill, the "MONSON MONSTER". It's about 320' in length and gets quite steep as you near the top! The club is the QUABOAG RIDERS M/C in Monson, Ma.

    The bike is basically, a stock Lemans (no engine work). I just took off all the 'road stuff', put on a smaller gas tank, an aggressive knobby on back and a wide 16" tire on front, dirt bike handle bars, a smaller seat and shorty pipes. I haven't done anything to the length of the swing arm yet... I may not, but we'll see how it goes in the first couple of races.

    I haven't even had the bike running yet. I was told that it ran two years ago! I still have a few things to do...new gas lines, change oils, check the valve adjustment, get rid of all the wires I don't need and put on some wires that I do need... 'dead man switch', starter button etc...

    I hope the gearing is OK, 'cause there's not much I'm going to change with that, but ... IT SHOULD BE FUN !!!!!

    I'll be riding in the OPEN class and the 50+ age class.

    I hope to see some Moto Guzzi enthusiasts there.

    I met Randy and have seen the bike. It's got the biggest knobby on the back that I've ever seen. This oughta' be good.
