Purchased: Aug 1999
Info: My intention was to ride the Intruder to Europe and leave it there. Now, I''ve decided that it will return home to Australia. somehow, sometime, after I''ve toured Europe a bit more. I have this idea of converting it into a cafe racer. Yeah, crazy I know, but there you go.
2008 Triumph Sprint ST

Purchased: Jun 2008
Sold: Jun 2011
Info: My wife vetoed my wish to buy a Moto Guzzi I had my eye on, so I bought this Triumph instead, when she wasn''t lookng. I did not paint the character on the water tank, but I think it captures her reaction spot on when she discovered the new bike 3 months later down in my shed. D''oh!
2008 Moto Guzzi Sport 1200

Info: Like a spoilt kid, I got my way in the end. Like all good machines, the Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport is greater than the sum of its parts. This bike is a keeper. In fact, I like it so much, I got 2, the black one here in Aus, and a red one in the USA.
2009 Moto Guzzi Sport 1200

Purchased: Feb 2013
Info: I bought this bike sight unseen before I arrived in the USA. Despite being assured the bike was in good condition, the left fork was bent. While riding across USA my left arm grew a couple of inches, so at the end of the trip the bike fitted me like a glove. On arrival in Seattle, I replaced the fork and now the bike is straight. Unfortunately, my left arm is still a bit gangly.

Info: Fishing boats and motorbikes, is there anything else worth the effort ? Apart from family and friends that is. Well there is booze, books, music and lots of other stuff. but the most important thing is your health. I''ve just had a bloody stroke. Now I''ve really got the biggest challenge of my life ahead of me.
