Moto Guzzi V7 Cafe – out and about and coffee at Tilly’s.


Moto Guzzi V7 Cafe – out and about and coffee at Tilly’s.

Apart from taking the Moto Guzzi for its MoT last week, it seems absolutely ages since I have been out on it. The ride up to MW Motorcycles for the MoT is so close to home that it barely counts as a ride at all.

With what seems like a long overdue change in the weather the Moto Guzzi was the bike of choice to get out on in the sunshine.

No particular place to go

A bit like the Chick Berry song – I had no particular place to go, so decided to head out on some familiar routes into the Cheshire countryside. I went via Alderley Edge and Holmes Chapel then headed towards and past Oulton Park and then on towards Whitchurch before randomly turning at a sign for the village of Bunbury. The village of Bunbury is located south of Tarpoley and to the north west of Nantwich.

I was glad I turned where I did as I found an excellent coffee shop in the heart of Bunbury Village and it’s sure to be a place I go to again.

In all the years I have biked that way, and the many thousands of miles I have done in Cheshire, this was only the second time I had headed into and through Bunbury.

If I was to head directly there and back (avoiding motorways) it would probably make for a round trip of about 90 miles or so, which feels like a pleasant distance for those short summer morning rides … assuming summer does actually arrive.

Very decent coffee shop

Tilly’s coffee shop seems to be something of a gem. Apparently it’s a family run coffee shop and seems to be pretty much in the middle of the small village of Bunbury.

I was able to park my bike directly outside and although I could have sat inside for my refreshments, the weather was so good that I sat outside to enjoy an excellent cappuccino and a fabulous Eccles cake.

I don’t think it will be too long before I’m back that way and when I am I think a stop at Tilly’s will be in order. There are some pictures from Tilly’s in the gallery below.

Clicking on any of the images below will open a picture gallery that can be clicked or scrolled though. Plenty of pictures here of the Moto Guzzi V7 Cafe Classic – including the last one with a slightly different look to the paint job … it wont be happening though, I was just messing with the picture editing software.
