Born Again Biker

time I was on 2 wheels was 35 years ago a Lambretta Cento 100cc. I was a Mod at 17. secured a job up in London I wanted which was going to get me there the queues, and was more flexible bus or train).

Having looked I ended up with a 2 year old with 2,800 miles on the

I was really scared about it for a test drive, and ended up around the streets taking handed corners, but as they say you never forget.

So having the Guzzi up the motorway, through for the last 6 weeks — do I think. I love it!

It is reasonably quiet, and has a smooth Cleaning the alloy is a bit of a pain, but which I will undertake looks very easy with all bits easily

Being a car driver for 35 years, it me a while to get into ‘bike-mode’. I arrive at the lights/junction and sit and wait with the other traffic, a seasoned biker passed me by his way through the traffic to the front of the I then cottoned on to this and started following them, is now second nature — I still feel that of the guys on their ‘superbikes’ too many chances.

Also you have to use the gears with my car, a Primera I can cruise down to 25 — 30 mph in 5th and then pull away. the Guzzi I have to think and a lot more constant use of the gears 25 — 30 in 5th and I am shaken to … as it to pull away. This another drawback with my hand — even 6 weeks when I wake up in the I have to keep flexing my as overnight my hand will gone into a muscle and locked up.

I am hoping that will go with time as my muscles strengthen. It is playing with my guitar playing.

The Nevada, to me, looks good, I am not a great lover of chrome-plating. It is a pig to keep the rear springs of rust and similarily with the Alloy wheels I am sure have been better, and plating on the springs would not have added much to the cost.

I am about to invest in a as storage is none existant and a screen I have been will stop some of the I get on the motorway from the strong — time will

As for comparisons I can not give you any as I have ridden anything else though now if anybody is offering I the confidence to take up the challenge. I the Nevada is a really good bike for someone who like me their test many ago and wants to get back into I am looking forward to the summer we can both go out into the country and in the views, without the problems of somewhere to park.

I have covered just 2000 miles in the 6 weeks and do a trip of 95 miles per day. The takes from one to one and a quarter and I am averaging 55 miles to the gallon. gives me a daily cost of to/from London.

The coach is Ј10.00 per day and the train — obviously I have not tax/insurance and I have not compared ticket prices. The bike me Ј2,150 which for a 2 year old such low mileage is fantastic. I to do 15,000/18,000 miles per year on the — I have to consider the before I set off in the morning, if it is thrashing it — I take the coach, because my water-proof gear especially) are not totally waterproof.

are fine for one way (homeward), but I have to dry them at work so it is a matter of — not that I am a fair-weather

I look forward to a long and association with the Nevada. I appreciate any other Guzzi contacting me with any hints/tips at 52 one is never too old to learn.
