A new photo from the benches

I had this pair up on the benches a couple of weeks ago and thought they were worth a photo. The Lemans has 30,000 miles on it and looks like a 30,000 mile old Lemans - black paint rubbing through, cracked side cover mount tabs, the usual sort of thing. The MHR has 30,000 km on it and looks like it was new yesterday. I have no idea how he keeps it so clean.

Not sure which one I enjoyed riding the most though. Both typically old bikes - bad brakes, not so nice suspension, all that kind of stuff. But both still very cool in their own way. I think I like the Lemans more, but maybe that's just because it's more like a modern Guzzi. Which may be a back hander for your modern Guzzi now that I think about it. Plus it's lower and more manageable maybe. Or gives you the impression thereof, regardless of whether or not it's true. Certainly the low, long look of the Lemans has classic cafe racer written all over it. The MHR is missing it's belly fairing, but I quite like it how it is.
