Hello everyone.
My name is Pierpaolo Cavallo, I am a doctor and live in Salerno, Italy; I have just joined the Forum and the V.O.C.

I have a small collection of classic motorcycles, and I am thinking about adding to my garage a British Classic.

And which British more Classic than a Vincent? :cool:

I have, obviously, a budget limit, and I don't want to bite off more than I can chew, so my goal, at the moment, could be a Comet.

Would someone, please, give me opinions and suggestions? :confused:

I have joined the V.O.C. as a member, but I don't know when and how I will be enabled to enter the member-only area.
Can I have, please, some instructions on the matter?

Thanks to all of you; I'm really happy to be here. :)

Good choice for a medical man: the Scottish section has a member in Lewis (a long way from nowhere on the NW coast) who 1) is also a doctor and 2) has a Comet.

Hello and welcome Pierpaolo, joining the VOC is a very good choice, and wanting a Comet is another excellent choice. I am sure you are about to get lots of good advice from many other members, but the best advice I can give is for you to make contact with Giovanni, the Italian section organiser. Look out for my private message to you.

Hi Pierpaolo,
You are not in the members database yet. How long ago did you send for membership?

As soon as you appear in the database, I can upgrade you.

@Tom: thank you, I have always supposed that medicine and Comets were a good combination...
@ John: I am already in touch with Giovanni, and I hope I will soon take a couple of days off duty to go to Milan to see his collection
@ Tracey: I applied on monday morning, and paid by credit card
