How about it, Guzzi?
I couldn’t help but smile when reading the ‘7 slow burners’ article in last week’s MCN. I’ve been a fan of Moto Guzzis for many years and have owned several in my 30 years of riding. I even made a pilgrimage to Mandello with friends last year.
Your summing up of the Guzzi 1000S is exactly what I’ve said for years. I love the styling of the V7, but at 6ft tall and 17 stone, it’s neither use nor ornament to me! A V7-styled bike with no frills and the California 1400 motor (a V14?) would hit the spot and I’d be the first at the dealer with a deposit. Manny, Leeds MAG rep
