    I am glad to see things going well for you and your custom Guzzi's. That is a cool article on your stuff.
    Maybe one day I will be able to afford one of your bikes. In the mean time, the shock showed up yesterday and it looks great. The box took a beating in transit, but the shock made it undamaged. Sadly, the Griso is off in a corner waiting for me to replace the clutch. But I look forward to getting it back on the road to enjoy the new shock.

    For those asking how my 1380 motor makes so much more power than the C14, this is the intake manifold off the single throttle body 1400 motor below vs. the 1200 twin throttle body manifold at the bottom. Add cams and a higher redline and they make big power.

    GTM 2.3, known officially as Rose is now on the road and has a permanent home in my garage. I can't even begin to describe the addictive power and thrill of riding her, you all need one... there's nothing like it!

    Nope, not needed...tail light and blinkers are integrated in the frame. Rear fender is mounted on the swing arm, no extra weight or junk. Just clean, simple, light weight and totally perfect! It feels lighter and more balanced than my v7 ii with so much more power and ability...just putting around town is such a thrill, I'm still smiling!

    So, my first introduction to Rose was a frame and engine that GTM had just started and a Griso green v7 tank. I told Todd I had to have it and let's work on making it a reality and we did. I've been riding since '79 and this is the best bike ever! They finished the bike when I was out of town on business and Todd took it to fine tune her in the canyons, when I got back I was honored to meet him at his home in Malibu and take Rose and the GTM .5 (the build that started it all) out for a long ride. Keep in mind, she had new tires, it was my first ride on her, I didn't know the roads and I'm rusty in the twisties. I'll get better, but here's the highlights of the ride and I had an ear to ear smile the whole time! Todd and David from GTM take pride in their work and they're making it right, thanks guys! Better rides, videos and genuine good times to come!

    I've only been riding Guzzi's for about 3 years. Before that it's been Japanese bikes and I've ridden a few Harley's. What I've noticed is that Guzzi riders tend to be stuck in their ways. At their core, they are unique and powerful but need the modern flare they deserve. I may get shit for saying all this, but the brand as a whole needs to modernize without losing it's classic character and Todd/GTM are doing this. I believe the GTM 2.x's offer a ride that is nothing like a Guzzi has ever been and I love it! Yes, I am a lucky man and I'm taking full advantage of it. These bikes look like a piece of art that you can't stop staring at but, you can jump on it, fire it up and they perform exceptionally well. They are making Guzzi's modern masterpieces right here in America which makes it even better!
