  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 pay to participate format. You will still be able to read for free. This should alleviate all of the opinionated 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.

    Hope this is the right place, new upgrade to Voldemort, RA3s and shorty exhaust; sounds lovely :) but maybe the people living near don't... IMG_5736.JPG IMG_5725.JPG

    Does the short exhaust have a mounting bracket of does it float relying on the pipe clamp?

    Nicely made bracket, you can see it in the bottom photo; mounts to the pillion foot pegs.

    The lovely four-wheeler in the background of the first pic is additional evidence you have incurable Italophilia. :giggle:

    My only issue is the silver pipe clamp, that needs to painted black. :)

    You did a perfect job Todd, that is for sure. I have never seen nicer pipes on anything than the ones you have designed. I hope to get your completed SS kit for my Anniversario next year.

    It’s just a cheepie of amazon.co.uk. A lot of the guys here have the one from Held but it’s £50, that cost £12 and it takes my waterproofs . I agree with the idea of making the clamp black, maybe next time I take it off.

    Hey Todd is that the step down that you mentioned that would be visible with the stubbys? If it is then it's no deal breaker for me.
