S! *t happens

S! *t happens

The weapon

Piece of fence chain

Nicely sharpened by being dragged behind a wedding car

Then fallen off on the road to await its victim

The victim

The mighty breva II

The sharpened chain slashed the tyre and flew up breaking the rear lens and numberplate cover

The plug that couldn’t last the distance

Need for rescue

Wow now wasn’t that wise to buy European recovery insurance.

The heroes

Pete and Vikki, fellow guzzista who run a BnB in France

Pete also runs Reboot Guzzi Spares

So wonderful Carole Nash agreed to put me in a hotel for the night and transport myself and the mighty breva the 200 odd km to Pete and Vikki’s Fortified Farm.

Which was my intended destination.

Pete had a near new tyre off a breva in his shed and a lens in stock.

So the next day the might breva was ready to roll. But I was not ready to leave Vikki’s fabulous food and the fantastic company quite yet.

Pete and Vikki’s BnB

One of the reasons you own a Guzzi was encapsulated in Pete’s words when I thanked him for all his help.

“well we are all part of the Guzzi family.”

As it turned out another guzzista from Melbourne arrived that night. 15,000 from home in the middle of France I was drinking red wine with a bloke that lives just the other end of Melbourne from me.

Its a small but special guzzi world.
