Moto Guzzi Griso Tank Bag

My friend Tim attached these pics with a recent email of his newly purchased tank bag. He wanted specifically a brown/tan coloured one to compliment the seat of his Griso SE and had to buy it from Germany to get what he wanted. It's from the same person who makes the luggage for the Axel Budde Cafe Racers -
   Not the biggest of bags,but handy for throwing in those little essentials for day trips out. Now he's retired Tim is doing as much as possible to make the Griso practical and comfortable for his needs. As Todd at Guzzitech acquired the bike for him he has also had a hand in some upgrades including the exhaust end can
At the end of 'The Strip' with the famous sign in the background

Out in the Nevada desert at Eldorado and I'm just a sucker for pics of old buildings
and cars.



My friend Martin came off his BMW Boxer a few months back and although he was ok the bike suffered a reasonable amount of damage with the more he dismantled the bike the more he found, including a frame that had to be scrapped. Acquiring another frame he has set to rebuilding.

  Lumiweld has been around for years and I have been tempted to purchase a kit,but never have. Martin has and has put it to some use to repair the gearbox end casing. He's machined off the damaged section made up a new piece and lumiwelded / soldered this on with seemingly great success.
