    Additionally, it's been a little past a month since I began my journey with this Norge... I've logged over 1000 miles on it, and I'm beginning to discover some of its quirks. A previous owner did convert the oil fill to an automotive-style dipstick, which has been a huge help. Now, I'll need to figure out a funnel setup that will allow me to fill the case without removing the fairing! The shifting has been positive under load, but very wishy washy at idle or low rpm, which I'm still getting used to. I haven't changed out the front pegs yet, so the reach down to the shifter is still a bit of a bugaboo for me, but I am getting used to letting the shifter decide what gear it wants to be in and acting from there. Still, it's quicker than most of the SAE cruisers I typically share some road with!

    VIN#ZGULPG0037M111238 - Piotr Świątkiewicz - Kraków, małopolskie, POLAND - D.O.P. 5/25/2011
    Current odometer is 44500 km (~27.5k mi) and it had just over 10k mi when I got it.

    Got it in the UK (and rode back home to Poland). According to the paperwork I'm the third owner.
    Bike came with the factory panniers, windscreen and GIVI top case. Added Hepco & Becker
    engine guards (proved useful a month after installation - got rear ended at a stop sign)
    and replaced the top case with a bigger model (V46) from GIVI. Also a custom accessory bar
    was [RAM-]mounted between the handlebars (pictures soon). Nice analouge thermometer
    and power outlets fitted neatly there.

    Plan to get Todd's full kit for the engine management. Cannot wait to see how things will change!

    VIN: ZGULP00095M112446. Breva 1100, owned from new, bought 27th August 2005, 14 years old today :party:.....

    Mileage to date 95,077. It has proved to be an outstanding machine with no major problems. Routine servicing and regular use, including many visits to Mandello and tours all over mainland Europe, have helped to keep it running reliably. The finish has held up very well, with no major corrosion issues.

    Pictures taken 25th and 26th August 2019.

    2009 Norge. Sport forks and muffler. modified rear suspension. I've been a fan since i saw an SP1000 back in 1973 at Motorcycle Sales on Leeland St. in Houston. I test drove it and just didn't let go of the money at the time.

    The Griso died. Time for a new bike, a 2006 breva 1100 abs touring. Must say after driving the bike i loved it. Better suitable for driving with a passsenger (daughter).

    Its got some dings. I bought this bike from the first owner in Chicago. Had it shipped down to Texas. When it arrived at my house, i couldn't wait to take it for a spin. Apparently, i didn't have the right side panier latched and it fell off about 100 yards down the road. So iv'e got those scars now. :(
