Bargain Benellis and Sunday rideouts

This is a brand new, unregistered, Benelli Tornado. Under six grand to you, sir. It's even in the historic green and silver. For sale with Moto Corsa, who are well know to Guzzi fans and can also supply new MV Agustas.

Better still, they're trailing Sunday opening just two doors up from 3X Motorcycles: this at last gives me somewhere to ride on a Sunday morning. Years ago 3X used to open Sundays, with a burger van in the car park. Perfect excuse to leave the family to Sunday morning drifting, while I had a quick 100 mile ride on empty roads punctuated by Ducati drooling and a bacon roll. Back home to help get lunch, and the kids don't even realise you've been gone.
Well, maybe Moto Coras can be the new Sunday rideout. There's an excellent foodstop on the A338 just south of Salisbury, and Moto Corsa's stock is as eclectic as it is fascinating. As well as new Benellis, MVs and Guzzis, there was an original Guzzi Cali and Eldorado, a Laverda Atlas (a what?), and this old Guzzi racer. Ah, I remember when white exhausts were the future...
