Moto Guzzi V7 Stone

We don't know bikes and don't post many but this was such an obvious Italian beauty it had to go up. Thinking of my amigo Teke Wiggin who inadvertently did some off-road (indeed, airborne) biking aboard a Moto Guzzi in Santa Cruz County some years back. Spotted the bike in Toronto, last leg of the Carry Me book tour. Which is my novel based to a considerable on my old man's life. Somewhere up in Maine, there's a photo of HHB astride a BMW bike somewhere in Switzerland c. 1930. I'll try to dig that one up.
