1997 Moto Guzzi — aka The Widow Maker

on Wheels

— Seven Pregnant!

Jennifer was seven pregnant. We had been back in for just two months when I across this 1997 Guzzi Nevada on eBay for 900 A steal really and I threw to the wind and bought the bike speaking with its owner via

The bike was located in South England which mean’t I be riding it back to Ireland via Although the bike was a far cry from my style of bike, I had read things about the Moto and had wanted to try one for some time Although, originally, I had been for a Moto Guzzi California

I flew down to London and was collected at the train station in by the owner of the bike. The ultimate was ahead and I recall being surprised at how nervous the guy was about my the bike to Holyhead. He provided me a full tank of petrol, a few cables (i.e. clutch brake cable, brake etc. ) and his mobile phone in case something happened and he come and collect me.

Perhaps should have been a I chalked it up to his being a weekend unlike myself who uses a every day rain, sun or hail. in the year that I owned the I found myself perilously in on a number of occasions. On the way to Holyhead I was to catch a ferry back to Port, the lad who sold me the bike to tell me about the fuel that needed to be turned off and on I stopped.

I found myself on the side of a for about twenty minutes realizing the stupidity of my mistake.

On one I was riding along a back down towards Wexford when the clutch cable inexplicably. Believe it or not I managed to it into town, catching green light (yes, speaking), and stopping flat out at the bike shop before the cut out. Add to the fact that I was forty-five minutes out of town, street lights and a tempermental and its pretty remarkable the bike it.

On another occasion whilst on my way to in Dublin in the pouring rain I was by a puddle concealing a pothole big to swallow up a scooter. All four blew and power was lost yet the bastard bike somehow it yo the exit ramp until it coughed, spattered and vomited a pub of all places.

It turns out, the owner had omitted to mention he or the owner before him decided to cut a hole in the air intake in order to the bike’s power. It essentially the bike useless in rain. given that it basically 360 days a year in Ireland.

It wasn’t all bad though. The bike had a to it that was at times irresistible. It had a lot of and when idle it sounded The Moto Guzzi engine was based on the Italians bi-planes world war I and II.

Later it was used in produced for the Italian agricultural It is unique in that it is mounted giving the front of the bike a V Unfortunately, as you have probably the body work and overall of build was and is very poor.

I have read that Guzzi has since cleaned up its act however in the last five Nevertheless, it hasn’t convinced me to try one. I do think it was worth the and if nothing else, it was the first our first son ever got to sit on.

The trip from South Hampton to was amazing in and of itself, but that is for blog altogether. I suppose, the of the above was really just to the importance of living for the moment. I met so wonderful people during my from Suffolk to Holyhead. It took me well over hours to make it to Holyhead.

I arrived in time to catch the ferry to Ireland at 02:00 am night. England is one of the friendliest and countries I had ever ridden in and I to go back for a tour or two in future, next time, Jennifer be joining me.
