Morning from an Island in the River Thames, Essex, England.
just bought my first Guzzi and registered on the site.
I have Cagiva(s) and Bimota(s) all with Ducati engines but this is the first V twin 'that way round' and with shaft drive
Very impressed with build quality and substance....jeez... its heavy...but I has a LOT of presence.
2017 model 1400 California SE Nero Gentleman version.....but already changed stuff ie....no passenger backrest and a shorter windscreen (150mm) and OEM side luggage pack........less than 2300 miles on the clock, bought from a Guzzi fan with FIVE other Guzzi's!

Numbers : ZGULCBOOXHM 000069.

I have read with interest the 'Air pod air box elimator' thread/story and after changing the air filter...I may keep this in mind!

thanks

Gavin

I Just purchased a 2016 Audace with 4107 miles. ZGULCU009GM200130. Curious how many of these have been produced and how many have been imported into the USA? Also is there a way to determine the factory opyions from the VIN?

Thanks for posting your info here Ken. A pic or two of you and the bike is always great to have here.
Guzzi keeps the production #'s closely guarded for whatever reason. A dealer might have some info for you, though my bet is doubtful as over the decades, even they didn't know.

Hi everyone, Eldorado 2016, third owner bought in Qatar. I have done 7000km since 2018, but given the size of the country, I guess it is decent. I liked the bike since I saw it, I enjoyed it since I bought it, but since I installed Mistral Exhaust I love it to bits. No matter the temperature( above 45 in the summer) I take it for any ride.
Chassis number ZGULVB 005 FM 200 283

I've had my Eldorado for a few months now. Love it.
Just got home from a 4500km trip. (about 2,800 miles) The bike was great. Did half of the miles hands free, on cruise control, steering with body weight. Didn't realise I was doing it half the time. Just came natural to me.
Anyways, When I bought it it had a 26 inch tall "Touring fairing." It worked great. I did the 300 mile ride home with my visor up all the way. Not one bug in my teeth, (Smiled all the way home,) but I had a really sore neck because the screen stopped right in my line of sight and I was scrunching down my neck to see under the top of the screen. It was also wierd cornering with the big screen, cos I was trying to see around it. Oh well! Took it off almost imediately after I got home, sold it to a guy in the US of A and put a small flyscreen on. Looks a lot better in my eyes. Keeps the wind off my chest, but now I have to keep my visor closed over about 50 MPH.
I sometimes wish I had bought a Custom 1400, because I love the rear fender and lights, but I met the previous owner at the "Ruptured Budgie" Rally, told him I loved the retro pinstriping and chrome panel on the tank and when he said it was for sale (At a great price,.... almost half new price) I had to buy it. First pic is the day I bought it.
On my recent trip, I talked my 89 year old Dad into coming for a ride. (Second pic.) He loved it. Hasn't been on a bike since the 60s, when he had a Triumph 650 Bathtub. (3rd pic. That's me in his arms, 56 years ago!) Don't know how many times he told me it's a "Beautiful bike."
Love my Eldo. Wouldn't change a thing about it. Why mess with perfection,.... unless you want to add BLING! (Already stripped and polished the master cylinder covers and the valve covers. Might chrome the fork shrouds and maybe the rear shock upper covers.....) THe Eldorado is a planned keeper. Love it! 20210605_093533.jpg 20211226_165849.jpg CC authorisation form Santa Grand_0001.jpg 20211224_140316.jpg 20211225_172209.jpg 20220107_140139.jpg 20211225_143414.jpg

Congrats(!), and love seeing the pics with you and your Dad! I have a handful of them both with me and my grandfather too posted in THIS thread.
I'd love to get your VIN# and related for the first post of this thread. Enjoy and post often!
