Break for V-Twin rally August 2010

For a bit of fun and for inspiration ! I decided to  attend the V-Twin rally in the New Forest area.

Below are some of the bikes that were outside the 'Italian Motor' Magazine stand at the Rally. and I spent a lot of the day talking to the editor (owner ) of the Mag also being a Guzzi enthusiaist and he had his S3 on display that he had owned for over twenty years.also a link to a great blog showing the bikes there on the day and a video of Johns Cafe Guzzi.

The gang from Herts Guzzi club were going to be there, as were a bunch of fellow Cafe Racer enthusiasts that I had talked to on the internet but never met .
Nice to meet you John ! (John has the ali tank cafe racer in the photo) and we have spoken for months by e mail. John has not only supplied sound Guzzi advice, he also supplied me with some rare astralite wheels for the bike. I have since changed the wheels for a set of wire wheels.
The Astralites were eventually sent to America to another Guzzi fan Andrew Gray . Andrew is an Englishman in the USA who races a Guzzi in classic races and his Blog shows his winter rebuild of a great looking bike.
