It was wet and windy here in the shires today, which really put the mockers on the local MAG (motorcycle action group) show, but a few of us turned up in the rain to support them…

Well after a day spent rebuilding my Guzzi Ambassador chasing the oil leak that has plagued me from day one, and finding more than I bargained for when I opened it all up as you can see below…

So I pulled it all apart and fitted new Gilardoni kits, and had it all buttoned up and running yesterday, so today I thought I would give it a ride out to my local MAG ( motorcycle action group) show, on a bitterly freezing cold Easter Sunday… BRrrrrrrr!

After a fun but cold day it was soon time to head for home, the Guzzi ran pretty good, just a little popping from the exhaust to sort out, but overall I am happy
with how it ran, and to top off a fun weekend, my bike won “Best European” in the show too.
