It was indeed a great day helped by the magnificent weather, although I think without the cool ocean and icy cold beer our Italian guests may have started to melt,
I was fortunate to have Giovanni share some very old hand written 750 and first series 1000 3C production records with me from 1972 and 1973 found in an old box at his fathers place.

Looks like a hoot, Maurizio. The weather has indeed been kind down here - praying for something similar in Syndanee in 5 days time!! It's amazing to think when we owned our beasts back in the early 70s that one day the family would be the guests of the true afficionados!  :D

Is anyone available to pick up 2 of us at the Doonside train station on Thursday at about 2pm
to get a lift over to the Alpha Hotel.

Cheers

Friday's Piero fest at the Alpha Hotel would be one good place to meet. I'll be trying to put faces together with monikers from this forum, many many members I have never met in person.

V6 gets unloaded from the container by Quarantine along with all the other Laverda's at circa 4pm tomorrow afternoon.
Sitting on the fence 120 or 180 that is the question ?
