I am new to the forum and new to Moto Guzzi.
Just purchased this 2014 California with 2K miles on it. VIN ZGULVC001EM200088. I changed all the fluids, (except brake fluid) filters and checked the valves. I did add the red valve covers and my Garmin to the bike. I have done a couple of trips on it and have currently 3700 miles on it.
Just a quick observation so far, also owning an R1200GSA, the Guzzi is easier to do the valves on, but more difficult for the final drive oil change. Also, the air filter takes way more time to change than it should. The Guzzi has more passenger comfort than the GSA for sure. The only complaint I have so far if the diameter of the grips compared to the BMW.
The air filter is a total pain in the arse. Guzzi service book only calls for final drive oil change every 50,000kms but the easiest way is just to do it every rear tyre change. Check out 'Grip Puppies' for simple way of increasing grip diameter.
Hoping to take the ferry to Valencia or Barcelona in the Spring and follow the coast down towards Malaga to meet with some friends. So you never know.HI ROBERT
