My first post to the forum couldn't be better or more important than to say "Congratulations! And Thank You!"
The excellent information in here was key in my recent purchase of a Stelvio NTX. Thank you for all the effort you put in, not only in building your business but also sharing the knowledge you've gained along the way. Congratulations! Here's to 20 more!

Thanks, appreciate your support. :) IDK, it's appropriate to ask this here, looks a bit odd.
I'm looking for tank bag and a pair of side bags, I've searched the forum too found https://www.guzzitech.com/forums/threads/transforming-a-1998-ev-11-touring.17649/page-2#post-167178 and https://www.guzzitech.com/forums/threads/74-eldorado-police-model.19284/#post-149737 got much help about mounting and fittings, however still confused about the vibrations and all.

I'm open to recommendations, please share your experiences to help me selecting the best.

I didn't vote - need a selection for " new to the brand and here all the time". I've learned so much.

I echo the comments from others on how this site and effort of the contributors helped influence my purchase decision.

Todd, we haven't met but I sure hope at some point we do. Thank you for your passion and commitment to the Moto Guzzi brand and this community that you created and tirelessly administer that brings us all together.

Absolutely no idea how I found this site..
I bought.my California 1400 without knowing what it had become
I thought it wold be one of the last big block simple GUZZI without ABS, RIDE MODEs and FBWire…..it wasn’t and it had been strangled by Euro 4 compliance.
I knew what I had to do….but this site made it all come to fruition……from airbox elimination to full stainless exhausts, GTM gave us the option of tested and proven products.

I am sure that this site has allowed the bike I wanted to appear from that first offered by MG

Thank you

You've heard it many times, and maybe likely said it yourself... TIME FLIES. When you're younger, two decades seems like an eternity, and I remember working in and around businesses that proudly documented this timeline with signage, stickers and promotional items from pens to steinware/stemware and more. I marveled at the thought of that amount of time growing and surviving a business.
Outside of racing motorcycles then, a short handful of years later I started my own residential design/build business on the East Coast. Fast forward ten years, and moving to SoCal and having a thriving residential Architecture business in N. San Diego Co., I launched this site in early September of 2001, days before the 9/11 attacks. Little could I ever imagine where it would take me. It's pure purpose was to house Guzzi-owner submitted tips and tricks, as it was quite amazing of how resourceful most Guzzi owners were in the decades preceding the launch of this site, yet how little was documented. If you belong(ed) to the Moto Guzzi National Owner's Club, they used to include something similar as an insert of goodness once or so per year. It did not live online, so I found it a real shame not to be able to access it easily with the exposure of the world wide web. That and the lack of any type of Guzzi-focused product reviews or the like was frustrating. So launch we went, quietly and simply... post and let it grow organically. And it did. You can still see it in it's original format on the ARCHIVE tab above.
Early that same year (c2001), I was able to be part of a visit to Dynojet with Cycle World Magazine, and had an eye-opening to modern fuel injection technology. They told me I could bring my Guzzi and they'd build me a Power Commander for testing purposes and put me through the dyno tuning software course... along with tons of mods I had been doing to my Jackal at that time, and not being able to sort it properly until then... was done in a half day. And the rest is history on that front. From there, creating some crude online pages to sell some of other the (suspension and related) products that I helped R&D, all get documented here; The gateway to growing the site. I had a tiny detour from the site here in giving it full attention from 2004~2006, as I became the Series Manager of the AMA Pro Supermoto Series, but that frustratingly got the plugged pulled on it through the ignorance of the AMA. In 2005, I did launch the Forum here, as the ability to allow everyone to write and post things without my intervention seemed like a miraculous idea! Outside of a few complete loss crashes, we were on a new track. Shortly thereafter, a GuzziTech member randomly reached out and asked to meet me for lunch. I didn't know him hardly at all outside of some basic email swaps, but he had recently moved to SoCal from Seattle. At that very lunch meet, he (Robbie) asked me about my website casually enough, with the simple question of "are you aware of how much website traffic your site gets?" My answer was, "Nope, not at all." So he told me what he did for a living... headed one of Microsoft's top online gaming programs. Needless to say, he opened my eyes with some numbers that rivaled MotoGuzzi-us by around 10-fold. Attention made. From there he offered to give the site a facelift into a modern web structure, and host the site for me on his personal server. An offer that I couldn't refuse. From there, I then locked onto seeing how I could grow the site even more, formalized the business to a LLC and so on and onward from there. Through many twists and turns (the way I like it my roads), I am quite proud of the path it's taken. The $$$$ now required to keep up with global bandwidth support is staggering, and it's somehow parlayed into a serious and real business venture... along with an entire custom Guzzi build line.
And in the blink of an eye, we're at 20 years. Time does FLY!
Now 50 years seems possible... I guess we shall see as I have no takers lined up from when I'm longer on this earth. In my time with the brand, I've seen a lot come and go... yet we remain and strive. I'm proud of the community built here and the mostly wonderful comradery it has brought.

The September launch of this site was kismetic, in that it coincides with with the GMG celebration in Italy every year, with this one coming in September being quite special for Guzzi of course!
Thank you for 20 years... both in contributions with the Famiglia here, and to all those who enjoyed the products I've brought to life. Special thanks to Carlo Guzzi, Giovanni Ravelli and Giorgio Parodi and all the rest of those adventurous moto-heads that had some part in these passionate machines. I will enjoy raising a glass to you again in Mandello in September. Saluti.
I had and have used the old site MANY MANY times for help on so many oldere Guzzi things. I remember talking to you at Moto Market the first time we met, Todd, and you have added so much to the ownershsip and support of being a Guzzasti! Love riding my Guzzi and love coming here and to the old site for answers that you cant find anywhere else. Thanks Todd!
