THE JOURNEY STORY
« Friendship: that was the main thing. I immediately felt a relationship growing between us riders and the staff, the kind of spontaneous bond that you only feel when you’re with a bunch of friends. The beauty of the place was truly amazing. The passion, well, these bikes are capable of transmitting a kind of passion that is absolutely incomparable, something indescribable, maybe it’s something to with having a soul. I know it’s a cliché, but it’s the truth: Moto Guzzis really do have a soul. I tried them all and each one was a unique and totally different experience.
« 4 days of sea, sunshine and absolutely stupendous roads. It’s great to be all together as a group, riding one behind the other as if we were taking part in some sort of parade. Scheduled stops to take in all the beautiful Sardinian sights out of season, interspersed with some amazing rides, some of which even quite challenging, because that’s what Moto Guzzis are all about: freedom, the freedom to explore and to travel, but also ready to be ridden hard as and when necessary.
« Sunshine, bikes and buddies. It was my first time in Sardinia and it felt as if I was just learning how to drop a bike into a bend. I live in Holland and the roads over there are all dead straight.
Kari: « A fantastic, warm October in the Sardinian sunshine, much better than northern Europe. I’m from Finland and she’s from Persia (pointing to his passenger), is that exotic enough for you guys? I got the invitation and immediately jumped at the chance.
« The beauty of this place, the enjoyment of riding the bikes, the bond that has developed amongst this group of guys from different parts of Italy, and beyond, has been truly surprising. I’m kind of a newbie given that I only started riding bike about a year ago, but this V9 Bobber is making me feel very safe indeed, and it feels great. But I also have to say one thing about the Audace: what an engine! »
« On the bike from dawn to dusk. I had never visited Sardinia before and, without wanting to offend anyone, I have to say that God must be a biker, because only a biker could have created a place like this. This experience has allowed be to discover a whole new world, the world of Moto Guzzi that I knew so little about before now. It may just be the sunshine, the sea or the Sardinian air, but this place has spawned the instant bond of friendship and like-mindedness between us that we are all feeling on this holiday. Riding the these two-wheelers makes us all equal, irrespective of whether you happen to be at the front or the back of the pack. The same thing goes for the food: I’m from the Marche region and I really can’t complain about the food back home, but here, both the lunches and the dinners we’ve had have all been incredible, perhaps even too much food, and all extremely tasty. Anyway, from now on it’s V7 all the way! »
« What an amazing feeling it is to be a Guzzi-fan. We had some incredible fun today because a few of roads we took were pretty much like a joyride. The bikes are truly fantastic, and the opportunity to try them all is just as fantastic. We keep on swapping bikes and it’s great fun. I’m a real Guzzi fanatic, I have five Guzzis in my garage, including an MGX-21 and here I had great fun with the V7, which is really nimble and perfect for these roads.
