THE ARRIVAL – SAND, CIRCUITS AND THE EXCITEMENT OF MOTO GUZZI
The sound of the waves is a constant here in Biarritz. They say that you get used to it soon enough and that you no longer even notice it, but here, on this third day of our trip, it’s too soon to say whether this is true or not.
2nd LEG – FROM THE PYRENEES TO A DIVE IN THE OCEAN
Yesterday’s evocative views bathed in sunshine and the unexpected glimpses that seduced us throughout the day made way last night for the beam of light from our headlights, and with it our insistence on completing the final stretch of the trip to the overnight stop. As our headlights lit up the ribbon of tar rolling by under the wheels of the bikes, we became increasingly aware of our mission and the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing that our Moto Guzzis are indeed faithful travel companions even as conditions change.
1st LEG – BEYOND THE ALPS, ALL THE WAY TO LANGUEDOC
It’s early morning in Origgio (Varese, Italy), but the early-June air is already hot. The Moto Guzzi and OMT Garage signs stand proud just a few metres off the ground. Just below them, in the background, the shop’s shutter stands half-mast and the V9s are still snoozing. They don’t know what lies ahead, yet somehow they seem to want nothing more than to get going.
A trip that has all the flavour of adventure and encounters becomes an on-the-road account, destination Biarritz, where other Guzzisti are arriving from all over Europe for one of the world's biggest custom events.
