    Just thought I would say hi as I just purchased my 1st Guzzi today, a 1200 Breva Sport. a brief ride home from the bike store thinking how do I explain to my wife another bike in the garage nextto the 1200 Bandit streetfighter.
    I dont know why but she didnt belive me when I said it followed me home as it was lost.
    The name comes from when I was in the Royal Air Force back in the 70's (old farts rule!) I lived in darkest North Wales so was called 'Shagnasty' because of what welsh men are supposed to do to sheep.. :lol:

    Well come on down to the south side, we got lotsa K-1-W-1 fat arsed chickens round these parts, they're supposed to know a thing or two about sheep, apparently.

    Welcome to the fold, Guzzi that is. Now that it has followed you home, you do realize you are fully responsible for daily walkies, and cleaning up the little puddles of red wee. Lets pray it never shits itself. :sick:

    Hey! Another member of the Bandit and Guzzi club. Watch out when you switch from one to the other as the horn and turn signals are backwards.

    A few years ago I met a bloke shopping for a bike for his wife, he rode a Bandit. Sent him to check out a 750 Breva.
    Turns out she loved it.

    I met them at a bike show twelve months later, he had used every excuse in the book to ride her Guzzi as often as possible, and was trading his Bandit for a big bruva Breva. :D

    Welcome and congrats. Guzzisti always have a unique sense of humo(u)r. UJM-I4's are disposable and for adolescents when it comes down to it. :whistle:

    Something about Guzzi just grows on you, and much like a fine wine... enjoy it. Post often, and welcome again here to the Forum and Famiglia.
