    Sorry to see you go Rene, but better to have the bike in motion rather than sitting. Good on you. You can always buy another down the road. Thanks for posting... and hope he shows here. Hope to see you again one day soon on a new Guzzi.

    Hey Todd,

    I fear it's highly unlikely I'll buy another motorcycle because of a back problem that became apparent last year. But who knows, if we move back to an urban area I might need to find a way around that.

    I didn't get the impression the new owner is very fluent in English, but I sent him a link to a post in the CARC strip thread. So there too, "who knows" :)

    Ugh, aging backs. I know that all too well. Frequent visits to the chiropractor keep me on track.
    He can post in French (thanks to Google), no problem!

    Ah, press bike. Well congrats and welcome. I think you are the youngest Norge rider on the planet. ;)
    Thanks for posting your info and pic! When you're ready to let that thing run as good as it should, hit the Service link at the top of the page here. Post often.

    Hi
    Just wondering how you find the EMC Sportshock 1 Shock Absorber, and why you choose that one, and would you choose it again?
    Thanks

    This nearly new 6k mile undressed Norge is now in the GTM Famiglia. The previous owner has all of the take-off parts if anyone needs fairing/headlight bits. Contact me direct and I’ll put you in touch with him.

    The Norge is white is a beautiful bike. I've got my eye on two of them right now (not currently a Guzzi owner). Is the 'issue' with the early 4v heads as serious as it sounds, as in, should I avoid a 2011-2012 model?

    Yep, it's as serious as it sounds.
    Any 4V up to mid 2012 has the affliction

    That was my first major ride after my 600 mile service. SF - Morro Bay - SFV - Joshua Tree - LA - SF. About 1200 miles and 4 days.

    Hello, everyone. I didn't find an introduction thread, so I figured this is as good a spot as any.

    Traded my 07 Victory Hammer (cuz it didn't like to corner) for a 2011 Triumph Sprint GT.
    Traded the Sprint (uncomfortable) for my 2007 MG Norge 1200.

    I love riding this bike. I love looking at this bike. I love the sound of this bike.

    I've been lurking around since I got it, so I figured I make it proper.

    Great Site!

    Rob
