|Happy to be coming home|
The bike had been hiding under a cover and was very happy to be out of there. I loaded it onto the trailer and drove home, where I introduced it to its new room mate, my 2009 Suzuki Bandit.
As it was already late in the afternoon, there was no time to stand on ceremony and it was straight into the tear-down.

Some parts will not be going back on of course, with the fairing, lights, and footpegs just to name a few. I have secured a neat set of rear sets from a generous bloke named Colvin, a contact on the AIGOR (Australian Internet Guzzi Owners Register) mailing list. This is a great mob of Guzzi enthusiasts and I highly recommend a visit and sign-on, especially if you reside in Australia or NZ.

Anyhoo, not a bad start made today. Enthusiasm levels are at an all time high, so let the tear-down continue!
