It must of been ..lust

These days we snap off digital images with abandon. Most of mine will sit on hard drives for the rest of their days. But once upon a time I loved a bike so much I sat her out in the sun, so as the light caught a sparkle of the mirrors. And then I took a roll of 24 film (a student who rarely splurged on the 36) and used up more than 10% of it on my fine, fine machine in the meadow. At the time it was almost all I owned in the world and all I owned of any real value. I paid the extra to develop it.

the LS was never afraid of a bit of dirt

it squirmed a lot (but gleefully) and rattled out a baffle or two..

Tanami screwed with this post 07-31-2013 at 06:47 PM Reason: Thats LC folks not LS

Even more amazing is. Just how quite the engine is at idle. I have never heard a guzzi engine so smooth and quite.

Nice line up for Sunday coffee, I'd actually have to remember that if I ever get back to Tassy again, lived there '79 - '81,

The view from the house we rented, directly west of Franklin in the Huon Valley, plenty snow to play in,
that's why the 'ice road', down into '12 Alpine didn't worry me, strangely I like riding snow & ice, must be the challenge!
DRF - what's the go with Sunday get-togethers in Canberra classic/vintage scene?,
ya should put a few dates on this thread occasionally, never - know, Bev & I might grace you with our presence
Cheers
Baza
