    New member too, purchased this California Touring one week ago, picture made riding the "Dutch Mountains", which actaully are the hills in the south of the Netherlands, where I live. It's a great area to ride your bike.

    New to me 2014 California 1400 Touring.
    VIN # ZGULVC00XEM112074.

    Purchased from a HD dealer in Santa Cruz, California sight unseen back in January 2020, and had it shipped back here to my local dealer the NYC area. Bike complete the journey March 9, which is when the COVID craziness hit. DMV's closed shop, then I got COVID, and topped a banner year off by tearing my ACL. Long recovery period ensued, and the DMV here in NY just recently started doing business again, so I had the bike pulled from warm storage and had it delivered this morning.

    Totally impressed with the entire package. Bike was previously owned by a celebrity chef person in Beverly Hills, only 2400 miles on the clock. Everything works, looks brand new.

    Had my eye on this species since they first came out. Cross another item off of the bucket list.

    Congrats and welcome to the Guzzi Famiglia and GT Forum. Really appreciate your post here with VIN#. If you can share the previous owner's name privately, I'd love to have it as I'm sensitive to celebrities here in SoCal. You should run it by Billy Joel's place.
    Anyway, read up in this section to save yourself some headaches if you plan on putting miles on it. I can make them run, turn and stop incredibly well with my offerings on the STORE tab linked above.
    Hope to see you here posting often. Enjoy and hope you can stay healthy!

    I think I saw you riding this beauty out at Lake Mead North Shore Rd. I was on a Audace riding in opposite direction and turned around to catch up with you but you kept on going.

    Greetings!!
    Moises Galvez from Northwest Indiana (Chicago Land)
    A 2014 Moto Guzzi California Touring (ZGULVC009EM200033) was purchased in April at: Kissell Motorsports in Tyrone, PA.
    I have been contemplating this bike since its inception but only had “room”for one bike, so I sold my 2016 BMW R1200R premium last year and casted my line for the Guzzi. Although I enjoyed the Beamer and its sporty and modern amenities…. I longed for the more classic, capable, cruiser style that the California exudes.
    At this point I am looking at customizing her to me and exploring her full potential by shopping at Todd’s store. I am new to Guzzis, so I will probably need and appreciate some help along the way. My California came with Mistral cans installed (which sound nice to my unbiased ears), a black 50L top box and what appears to be the short windscreen.
    As alluded to above, I would like to:
    —address the fueling issues,
    —locate a tall windscreen,
    —and if I can raid the piggy bank…. a full exhaust (to rid myself of the faulty H-pipe). Thank you and see you on the road.

    Congrats and welcome aboard Moises! BMW dealer arrogance is a hard one to swallow, and so far from the adventurous spirit of a core motorcyclist IMO. Guzzi on the other hand is at the opposite of the spectrum, so as you've seen and read, learn to dig in yourself, and you'll be well rewarded with a machine that ticks every box for you. They are amazing road bikes no doubt. Happy to be of help, and hope to see you here and one the road often! Saluti.

    They are Halcyon Goggles from the UK. They specially made to fit over glasses. I fully endorse them.

    Yep - that's the short windscreen. I have one on my Audace. Good luck sourcing a (Guzzi) windscreen, I think the last one on the planet just sold to someone on the site, although you might get lucky with a second hand one.

    The windshield mount you have is the lower one.Only two windscreens that will fit that mount-the one you have installed and a medium if you could ever find one.Larger windscreens from Guzzi need the Tall brackets which have been discontinued also.I have the same screen setup on my Eldorado as yours after trying for six months to get a tall one.Had to order though the Nederlands and got the last lower bracket and the last small windscreen AF1 racing had.So far I don't mind the smaller one but this winter will send my small screen to Clearview to have them mock up a taller and wider screen to fit the lower hardware.Nice looking Cali you have there looks like it rolled off the showroom floor.

    Thank you for all your comments and info. I know I am in good company. Yes, my Cali is in great condition. I purchased it with 5600miles and Guzzi dealer maintenance records. Thanks for the windscreen info and I am aware of the rarity of the screens. I am interested in your Clearview project Edgeman55. Let me know how that goes.

    I will post here if and when I go that route.I am thinking about trying a MRA X-screen which clamps on the top of the small windscreen.King of works like a Madstad type screen.
