    Ah, press bike. Well congrats and welcome. I think you are the youngest Norge rider on the planet. ;)

    This nearly new 6k mile undressed Norge is now in the GTM Famiglia. The previous owner has all of the take-off parts if anyone needs fairing/headlight bits. Contact me direct and I’ll put you in touch with him.

    Hello, everyone. I didn't find an introduction thread, so I figured this is as good a spot as any.

    Traded my 07 Victory Hammer (cuz it didn't like to corner) for a 2011 Triumph Sprint GT.
    Traded the Sprint (uncomfortable) for my 2007 MG Norge 1200.

    I love riding this bike. I love looking at this bike. I love the sound of this bike.

    I've been lurking around since I got it, so I figured I make it proper.

    Great Site!

    Rob

    Congrats and welcome.

    Just back from riding mine two-up (and heavily loaded with distaff hair supplies, etc! :giggle:) to W.V. Guzzi rally at Pipestem. What a wonderful machine.

    [​IMG]

    What is build date of your Norge? Mileage?

    Mine suffered -- as did quite a few built c.Nov. '06 - c,Mar. '07 -- from defective oil pumps that led to na$ty results.

    Yours is not necessarily affected, but be aware. If outside build date or high mileage -- mine and others seemed to have the problem c.20K -- likely no concern.

    Another niggle with '07 Norges was soft spring on OEM shock, at least for folks who aren't built like thoroughbred jockeys or who carry sweeties who bring along their closets. :makeup:;)

    Best,

    Bill

    In Sept 2018 I bought a silver 2007 Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 USA (2-valve) with 36,600 miles on it.
    VIN: ZGULPU0017M112211
    In this photo I have removed the bags and some of the excess body plastic. Less is more...

    Thanks Rob, and as Bill says above, welcome to the GT & Guzzi Famiglia. I combined your post with this thread is hopes that you'll add a photo or two of your Norge, and the VIN# and related info for the first post of this thread. Post often, and enjoy.

    Yes, Thanks for the warm welcome. I see you've also found my *registration* post. I don't remember the build date off the top of my head, but as I say I've been lurking a bit. I believe IIRC I'm outside the oil pump issue window, I certainly hope so. My bike has just over 13k miles on it. Let me tell you that I'm glad I have an arsenal of wierdo tools, cuz checking the oil without long needlenose pliers would be a chore.

    I have to fix a bit of ugly on the chin spoiler (found the paint code on this site), and do plugs/LOF/valve adjust before putting it to bed for winter, but I feel this is the bike I've been needing. I will have it for a while.

    My other bike is an old 84 Honda Nighthawk 650 rebuilt from fire damage. Runs/looks great.

    Rob

    *edit* I don't know the original owner's info. AFAIK I am the third owner.

    The dealer told me the first owner sold it due to a medical condition that kept him from riding. Records show the first sale occurred at a measly 1050 miles. The second owner sold it due to moving overseas. The bike had 7100 miles when I became its proud owner.

    I bought the bike from Portland MG and it was registered in WA.
