Guzzi Overland Overview

Onboard the Spada

We are Kev and Karen and our plan is to ride the world in 2010/11 on our modified Guzzi Spada. We have saving up for 10 years to realise dream and rebuilding and modifying the for 5 years, there is a lot more on the bike modifications and preparation in the section .  We both realise is an ambitious journey plan as our bike of choice is 30 years old and is a big beast but we have tried to for most eventualities.

There will undoubtedly be when we struggle and times I curse its weight and bulk, but on the side there will be when we are glad of its weather and extra features. We got the bike on the in June this year and it to the Moto Guzzi International in the South of France. We quickly that it causes quite a wherever it goes because it so different, it was at this rally we were approached by the then of Gambalunga (the Moto Owners Club magazine) who us if we could write an article. eventually turned in to a three-part and is reproduced on our press section by permission of Moto Guzzi GB .

We have covered 8000 this summer testing the and modifications which seem to well and the bike has introduced us to so nice people on our travels we realised the trip would not be the without it. That said are no guarantees with a trip of magnitude, things will go wrong with the bike and us and a part of our challenge will be to body and bike together.

Some days when I am invincible, laughing in the face of and tweaking the nipples of terror seems like the best in the world – What an adventure !

nights at three in the morning I can’t sleep and my knees I lie there thinking who do you think you are you …, how is that ever to work. You will be mugged, …, …, ripped kidnapped (delete as appropriate) not to all the “what if’s” for the bike: if it breaks down requiring vital part in the middle of what if we can’t keep it all that way, how will we it up when it falls off the edge of the down a bank, will we be to get parts when needed, we come back from to find a little spot of oil on the and no bike. What if we run out of beer – no things are just truly

Since getting the bike on the things have snowballed a publicity point of view. We really intend to make a and dance of it before we left in the back of my mind that we fail in our stated objective for any

On the

number of reasons but we have to terms with the fact now its out there in the big wide world will naturally want to about it and what it’s for so why not the dream with people who love to be doing the same but for whatever reason cannot. articles in Gambalunga have some helpful responses and and at the time of writing Sam Manicom has an article for Motorcycle Sport and about the bike and our plans to be in January I believe.

We will obviously be writing on the road and we will initially them on the blog section of our but our clever web master has arranged so that they will be be shared on Horizons Unlimited Blogs (The motorcycle website), Guzzioverland on Twitter and so if that’s your cup if Earl you can follow our crazy exploits on mobile. Once we are on the road we start posting with some tests beforehand see Contact Us page.

I have been very self-reliant to do with losing my Father as a and I have done as much of the as I possibly could myself but getting the bike on the road I am to appreciate that we are going to be reliant on others, other speaking other languages part of our destiny in their
