    Hello,
    New to the board. I am looking at getting a 2007 Griso. I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good mechanic in the central (Raleigh) North Carolina area. I plan to do most of my own work, but it would be nice to know there is a qualified, trustworthy tech in the area if needed.
    Thanks!

    Did you ever find anyone? I just picked up a v7iii rough from team Charlotte motorsports. They have Guzzi and aprilla and I’m guessing a Guzzi tech. But I’m closer to Raleigh than Charlotte.

    who did u deal with there and how was the experience. I'm going to price a V85 there and Atlanta seeing as I do my own work and doubt either will be still selling Guzzi there in 12 months.

    No, I never did find anyone. The Charlotte dealer seems to be the closest, but I have no idea about their service department.

    The guy I worked with was named don or dan, I can’t remember exactly. He was just a sales man that had helped me when I called about the rough, nice enough fella, he was from the same part of New York as my wife so I built some rapport there. But In the shop they have the main rep, I think Todd is his name, older gentleman who used to work at Matthews fun cycles which was a Guzzi dealer for a long time. Super helpful guys.

    Virginia also has a ton of Guzzi dealers. They were super aggressive on the sales side though and not willing to work to much.

    Team Charlotte motorsports has at least 5 v85tts on the floor though.

    Does anyone in the N.C. area know of any Guzzi groups that do events or meet ups?
