Years ago, Moto-Guzzi ran ads in motorcycle magazines

with a hunky, Italian model trying to have carnal knowledge of the new Breva.

My local Guzzi dealer referred to him as the "Breva Humper".









Girls, I'm only going to do this one time.







If you don't smell gasoline, you're not doing it right.

They're still around. (http://www.motoguzzi-us.com/). I'm heading to the Moto Guzzi National Owners Club (MGNOC) National Rally in Beuna Vista, Va. the last week of June. I have owned Guzzi's since 1976 and love the brand, but maybe a little differant than some.

Caress the engine fins like that after a "hot session of riding" and you'll find you have branded your hand with the "Mark of Motoguzzi..."

Oh man I need to take a picture like this to hang in the garage. I wonder if I could find an old guzzi poster to put next to it.

Great job Mac!



Long time ago, I usta commute from the Seattle area to the Bay area most weekends.

Yeah, there was a gal involved.

Anyway, I was 18 or so and thought I was pretty bad azz on a bike and had a new XS 1100. Somewhere near the WA/Oregon border a dude passed me just a little faster than I could stand for . . . and I was apassin' most of the traffic that afternoon.

So, in an effort to prove to everyone else on the road what an idiot I was, I took off after him and I really got schooled on handling a motorcycle that afternoon.

I had 35 horsepower and 20 mph on him, but couldn't even begin to catch him. He'd let me reel him in for a bit and then walk away. That thing cornered like a cat and sounded so sweet.

When he finally pulled over for gas we sat and BS'd for awhile and he was just as cool as his bike, which was a '77 Guzzi 850 T3. I've wanted one ever since . . . and it's one of the few I've never had. Nice collection WV.

Ah, the good old days. Sigh.

Back in the Day.





Now





Thanks, Bagger



The T-3 and the Convert were very similar. The Convert is 949 cc with an automatic transmission. They runs strong and often rigged with a sidecar. I bought this one new.

Nice pic/bike WV.



I got involved with putting a hack on a Convert a few years ago for a Brother that could no longer walk. With the auto shift it was a great bike for his use.



When we lost him, and were trying to help support his Wife, I made a nice offer for it, but his Daughter wanted to keep it, and that was more appropriate.
