1995 MOTO GUZZI CAL­I­FOR­NIA 1100

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - FEATURE -

I had one of these in 1995. I sold it. This is a brand new one. My wife and I saw it down in Mel­bourne. We went to a Moto Guzzi deal­er­ship in Ring­wood. I thought, “They’ll have one on the show­room floor,” and when we saw it, Mau­reen said, “Would you like it?” which is a silly ques­tion. She’s deny­ing that now though! We had it shipped up. I’ve got six bikes at the mo­ment, and one com­ing from Ade­laide. They’re all BMWs, so this is the odd one out. It’s a nice tourer, so we bought it so Mau­reen can go on the back, al­though she’s got her own bike. We are the Townsville Re­stored Mo­tor­cy­cle Club. This is my sec­ond year do­ing the ride, and money is raised by do­na­tions on the web­site.
