ADVENTURES IN GUZZILAND


The Avignon Motor Festival celebrates all powered vehicles, and is an understated, still-growing event, run over 3 days, with around 50,000 visitors.  Tanks, cars, boats, planes, trucks, tractors, farm equipment, and motorcycles; this year with a beyond-killer display of Moto Guzzis.  Production bikes from all years, plus factory racers from supercharged 250 singles to the glorious v8 of 1956.  Enjoy...

@Jim:
Actually, its an iPhone app!
These are all phone pix, terribly low-res...but sometimes that's just the ticket.

Is that really "the" V8 - the only existing original one housed at the Guzzi museum? If so, there should be armed guards and alarms for the Mona Lisa of motorcycles, no? -JZ

I never knew they made a desmo V twin, it certainly looks like thats what it is?
Love to see more of the V8, especially in action!
