    New V7 Special to replace my V7C which behaved faultlessly for 5 years. Had the spoked wheels replaced by cast, to get tubeless tyres. Early summer in England, very happy.

    Hugo has inspired me to add a small leather tool pouch to my Racer. I went searching for a vintage bag and found this little gem. It's an old Swiss Army Ammo bag. Very sturdy and matches the leather strap on the bag nearly perfectly. What do I put in it? not much. Form over function, you bet, but I think it's way cool and I know I'll find a few uses for it.[​IMG]

    Andy,
    I made some adjustment on my crash bar (wrap with leather) add another leather bag in the back and wrap the pipe to hide the blueish color stain.. give me your thoughts my friend. Thanks.

    Cheers!

    Hi Hugo, that is some excellent leather work, is that your trade or a hobby? As for the mods, I think you may have a bit too much of a good thing going on. Ultimately it is your bike, and if you like it, that is exactly the way it should be. Since you did ask for my opinion, I'll be honest. I would completely remove the crash bar, it just doesn't "flow" if you know what I mean. If you really want a crash bar, Todd has some good options here on his store or I'm sure you could make something up yourself. Just a straight bar doesn't look right. I'd also remove the leather wrap on the foot- pegs. (Think less is more.) As for pipe wrap, I thought about putting it on my bike, but decided against it. If I do anything I'll get them ceramic coated. Why did you use so many pipe clamps? If you need that many, you may not have installed it correctly. As for the tail bag, I'd probably remove that one too, but I'm sure it could come in handy. Hope you don't take my criticism the wrong way and I do appreciate your great ideas!

    Andy,
    Good day man! I'm really having a good time with this bike and one thing I fell in love with; is the leather strap attached on it and from there my mind starts to evolves in it. I think I'm in the "more instead of less" mods at this moment, but in a near future I'm considering doing less mods " raw looks" which what I did in my HD 883 iron "bobber looks". Overall, I'm still having fun especially getting tumbs up from other bikers and motorist. I'm really appreciate your feedbacks man!. thanks.

    Cheers!
    Hugo

    Purchased a 2013 Stone used. It came with gel seat, wind screen, and crash bars. Took off the wind screen.

    Planning on adding bar-end mirrors and fender eliminator in the short term.

    Hi, I'm new here! from Queenstown, New Zealand, owned my V7 racer for 7 months. Its a 2011 model bought new with Arrow exhausts ready to go.
    I have another bike a BMW r1200r, which I use for touring and supermarket shopping…haha…well its easy to find a park more to the point.

    The Guzzi I use for short rides, social occasions.

    Its winter here, I will keep the Guzzi registered over the winter months, all up I travel approx 25,000kms per year, I belong to a local motorbike club we ride a lot.

    This bike is my 5th bike I have owned.

    I hope to gleam some knowledge of my bike from this forum, when I get to grips with the layout of it..thank-you.

    Although I know my r1200r I'm a bit useless on technical knowledge of the Guzzi…and if I can get some time, post stuff up.

    Here is some photos.

    Head of the Lake towards Rees Valley.jpg
    This is taken just past a place called Glenorchy…this road leads to a lot of the walking tracks in the area, its one way in.



    Dart River looking up stream.jpg

    Storm coming in…from the head waters of this river….time to bale.


    towards Greenstone valley.jpg


    This place is called Bennets Bluff, its not far from my place, I'm with a friend who was excited at having purchased her first road bike….this KTM.
