Greg Pullen began a lifelong love affair with motorcycles in the sports moped and Barry Sheene era, during the long, hot summers of the 1970s. The Italian motorcycle obsession soon followed when a near neighbour bought a Laverda SFC750, soon replaced by a Moto Guzzi 850T3 for continental touring. Trained as a chartered surveyor specializing in old buildings, these days Greg spends his time in rural Wiltshire riding and writing for magazines that have included Classic Bike and Classic Bike Guide, alongside his own publication Benzina.
