This one was from Italy via Montreal - it was advertised on Kijiji a while back, but hadn't been listed for a month or two.

'Twould be the one. I like the stacked pipe. The only M.G. here is a seventies model that was stored badly and was put back on the road as is. I rode with him once and even in rough shape it made me want one even more.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.

Careful now! I know perfectly sane, sensible people who get a Guzzi then before they know where they are, have a garage full. They're just not like other bikes........

The perfectly sane part is debatable at the best of times! Lol

Well I already have two sheds and the rec room full.
And anyone who knows me has already commented on my sanity and sensibilities or lack thereof.
I guess the only thing to save me is the lack of opportunity to purchase on "The Rock" but that has not been a hindrance with a couple of my machines. I rode my scooter from Tatamagouche to home for 3 days.

That's no scooter. That's a Ruckus! Cool bike!

So, can anyone see how they are getting the crane dismantled? I know there's 3 cranes holding the damaged one up, and one taking the sections down, but how are they getting the sections apart? I wish the weather was good enough so we could go down and see this spectacle ourselves but....

I just can't believe the devastation. My thoughts are with all the folks that have been displaced.

And I hope that poor crane operator recovers soon.

Posting this out of frustration. I will apologize in advance as it is not bike related.
The owners of the Gananoque Ultramar should be ashamed of themselves. They left a 73 yo woman (my mother) to walk to the Pharmasave , in -23degree weather, to call CAA because they would not let her use their phone! :mad:
Her car had died at their pump after she filled it with gas! Who does that?!ghead:
My family purchases about $800/mo of gas there...or used to...what a crappy thing to do.
I went back and called the owner out. Twenty years ago I would have done much worse....

Rant off and sorry, but sometimes you gotta vent:(

Where is this Ultramar exactly? We'll make sure we never go there.

Hey Bob - that's brutal. Hopefully it was just a very misguided sales clerk and the owner will correct the situation to your satisfaction. It always amazes me how so many businesses can botch the customer service piece...

No excuse for that. I'd be pissed too.

They'll be first against the wall when the revolution comes.

JFC! That's inexcusable. I'll take my business elsewhere as well.
