Obsession #7: Moto Guzzi

  At this point we are unsure if our Guzzi lust has moved from beyond the realms of mere obsession to something else entirely.  Despite the fact that we have been left on windy mountain passes, rain soaked beaches, and sun blasted motorway medians by our obsession we continue to return.  A jilted lover who far too often has found themselves on the wrong end of things.  Still, there is nothing quite as soulful as a Guzzi under throttle and it is for this that we continue to come back to those proud cylinder heads.

   Guzzis outside that beautifuly anachronistic factory in Mandello del Lario.  A village and company pilgrimage worthy.
