  1. Ciao Guest - we've been proud to harbor such wonderful Guzzisti camaraderie since 2005, for FREE. Times have changed, and so have the attitudes and expectations of far too many. Starting Jan 1, 2020, we will likely be shifting to a paid to participate format. You will still be able to read for free. This should alleviate all of the negativity that the free social media channels have created. If you are a donor or customer of ours, you're in, just use the Contact tab above if your account is not already promoted, or you can Upgrade your account once signed in. Or the Donate tab above is another option. We look forward to continuing this service to the Guzzi community, but it is not cheap or easy to host and maintain. We wish you the best for the Holidays and in the New Year.

    Update, my dealer was able to get me a black 2014 custom from Guzzi. I saved thousands over new and picked it up yesterday with 2 miles on the odometer. Vin # ZGULVC017EM200072

    Now, the weather needs to improve.

    Congratulations on your "new" purchase. I've had mine about 3 weeks and really enjoy the ride. On the downside, I just read on another forum that a dealer stated the touring edition is not going to made available in the US for 2016 and after. Hopefully the info is wrong but if it's right it's an awfully quick end to a nice bike at least in the US.

    Waiting for delivery of my new/used CALI. Should arrive end of month. I've owned 2 Guzzis in the past and swore I'd never buy another until they built one that delivered more than just 'character'. This one seems to do all that and more while remaining entirely Guzzi.

    Once you've owned one, you never want to have a garage without one -- what is it about these bikes?

    Can't wait to ride it - and I'm ANYTHING but a cruiser guy, this will be my first. But I think it's the most beautiful bike I've ever seen (since my 850-T4, that is).

    I think we can all agree with that.

    2014 Black Cali 1400 Custom
    ZGULVC013EM200070
    Atlanta GA, USA

    Purchased NEW: 09-Apr-2016 - Marietta Sportscar - Marietta GA. That's right NEW, as in never prepped, never started, 0 (zero) miles on the Odometer when the deal was made, 6 miles when we rode out of the parking lot.

    THIS beauty waited patiently for the right buyer since Marietta Sportscar became a Guzzi dealer. My first new Guzzi.

    To paraphrase Don Dickler, "... the 2nd most beautiful bike I've ever owned, my '78 Lemans being the most beautiful bike I own..." the '96 Sport 1100 a stunningly gorgeous 3rd..".

    Currently still sitting at the dealer waiting on a few accessories to show up(I have another bike so I don't care if it sits there for a bit). I'll post a picture once I take delivery.

    Trevor Adams 2013 Silver Custom. Touring bars, Gel seat, Hepko and Becker Rack, Ago pipes (with baffles in)
    ZGULV0024DM111341
    Purchased 2nd hand last December with 16400k's and now has 21500. It replaced a 2007 1200 Sport that had served me well. Also have an 82 LM Mark 3.

    A departure away from my historic ownership of sports tourers but loving the bike and the most enjoyable ride I have owned in years. Still a few mods to go (Thinking black Rocker covers next)

    I picked this bike last Friday and this is my first motorcycle. Very new to this sport, started May 2015 on Vestpa GTV 300, but I wanted something bigger, more solid when riding on highways.

    Stainless pipes look sharp. What brand are they?

    Dusty1,

    Is your question referring to the windshield (front screen)? If so, a product called PLEXUS is excellent.

    http://www.plexusplasticcleaner.com/cycle.html

    It is available at most places that sell auto parts.

    The head pipes are stock but the mufflers are Mistral "Eldorados" slip ons. Similar to the standard Mistral but with the 4" diameter aluminum end cap in the two tone. Also too...don't let the YouTube clips on the web fool you. These things are NOT quiet and subtle. Even with the DB killers in there is a very noticeable bark to the exhaust. Without the DB killers they are just flat out LOUD>:devil:

    Dusty, I use a product called Griots Garage Foaming Window Cleaner, as a finish up. For the initial cleaning of the bugs etc. I use just soap and water and a soft microfiber cloth.
