Moto Guzzi V7 Cafe Classic – picture post

Moto Guzzi V7 Cafe Classic- picture post

Picture and blog wise it still feels as though I am catching up from my trip to Ireland earlier this month – it’s the trip I mentioned in my last post (at this link).

I have made a start on the blog post(s). All the pictures are sorted and I have begun to write Part One which covers travelling to Anglesey, the ferry from Holyhead to Dublin and on to Listowell for an overnight stay.

I had really good intentions to get Part One finished and uploaded over the weekend … but with the weather being decent yesterday and with no commitments I decided to get the Moto Guzzi out and knock a few miles in.

I ended up doing about 90 miles and took in a quick visit to the J&S store in Northwich  and then a coffee stop at Cafa556 before making my way home. As ever there were a good number of bike in the J&S car park, none that really moved me but of course beauty is always in the eye of the beholder – but there’s a few pictures included in the picture gallery at the bottom of this post.

Cheshire roads

I headed out towards Jodrell Bank and Holmes Chapel and then onwards with no plan and no rush just the prospect of three or four hours on the Guzzi.

It was time well spent, it always is on the V7 twin. The sound alone is enough, on top of that the lack of sophistication and the lack of any rider aids actually makes for an involving and fun ride – and of course the bike itself looks decent, as I have said so many times before, this good looking Italian bike, more so than any other bike I have had, gets plenty of looks and comment from bikers and non bikers.

The day didn’t end there

The day didn’t quite end when I got home  as later in the afternoon my wife and I took a drive down to Williams Motorrad in Manchester – mainly because I was interested to look at the F900XR, and it’s certainly a decent bike and we enjoyed a wander around the showroom and a chat with staff.
