Having some issues with my new V7II Racer

    Hey yall, I just bought a brand new V7II Racer from a dealership that was a state away (they had a stupidly good price on it, better than I was looking at paying locally for the V7I Racer). The bike had 15 miles on it (I assume from test riding). It was delivered to my house on Friday, and I gotta say, this bike is beautiful. Completely gorgeous. After a crash I had in January that totaled my Yamaha C-Spec (someone ran a stop sign, turned right in front of me, and slammed on their brakes- I avoided hitting them but I went down and ended up with a messed up arm and a lot of medical fees- and of course, a totaled C-Spec). I gotta say, I did enjoy the C-Spec, but I never felt confident cornering in it and while I found the riding position comfortable, it wasn't the MOST comfortable. After putting a few miles on my V7II, I gotta say, the difference between the two is night and day. The handling, the aesthetics, the everything- it's perfect. This truly is the only bike in its class I can imagine ever wanting.

    The bike looks so nice that folks have stopped me in the parking lot and asked what I do for work. They don't believe me when I tell them I work for just above minimum wage in food service, and that this was actually the economical choice for me. One man apologized for parking too close to me- he was parked nearly 7 feet away. This bike get- no, demands- attention.

    On to my problem: I can't ride it anywhere in public because I'm having a hard time hiding my raging erection. Anyone else have this issue? Anyone who has been able to solve it?

    Seriously, I love this bike. It's funny, I am about to be owning a second Guzzi (a V50II that my dad's friend is selling me for $800) that is gonna be a project bike. I was worried that I'd love this bike so much that I wouldn't wanna work on a project bike, or that I'd end up disliking it so much that I'd ONLY want to get the project bike done so I could get rid of the Racer, but now I have a whole new kind of dilemma I had never anticipated- this bike makes me like everything about motorcycles that much more, to where I wanna do everything I can with them, whether project, modding my Racer, whatever- thanks Moto Guzzi, for reminding me why I love motorcycles.
