    That really is a spiffy looking bike, congratulations. A hair dryer or heat gun will help to soften the stickers to remove.

    I agree, roadscum. I still want that blue Special badly even with my beloved Stornello. Well, I suppose it's just the beginning of my future collection. Lol!

    And great mileage for 6 weeks. Keep on keeping on friend! :cool:

    Uhm.

    Bill

    P.S. As long as I am in this V7 thread, hoping to add a Stornello to Todd's list and my harem this or next week. :clap:

    I had a Russell Day Long Saddle on my 1981 BMW R100RT. Ugliest saddle ever made but damn was it the most comfortable thing I ever sat on. I put 80k miles on that saddle. The new version on your bike looks a little more stylish but they still are not what anybody would call "pretty" saddles.

    Nice bike!

    @scottmastrocinque Agreed but you don't have to look at it when you're sitting on it ; )

    @GerryP Yes it was! I was not there though, had dropped it off and picked it up after hours.

    @vagrant The Hagon Nitro's are definitely a good upgrade over stock, probably the most improved aspect is dampening, hitting frost heaves on the highway is not nearly as jarring as it was with the stock set up, and definitely holds the ground better in corners on sketchy pavement

    2017 Moto Guzzi V7 III Special. Purchased new at Sturgis Motorsports, Sturgis SD on May 8th, 2017.
    Vin: ZGULDUA03HM000048

    This was the first new Moto Guzzi sold at that dealership after they took on the Guzzi brand. They also sell and service BMW, Suzuki, and Yamaha machines.

    Mine, on way back to Virginia yesterday afternoon from dealer in Accident (I'm not making that up! :giggle:), Maryland.


    [​IMG]


    Could not ride (other than an ebullient victory lap around the Moto Grappa) last night when I got home, and can't today as just had a "procedure." :cry:

    Hope to get in a short romp in tomorrow, but, as we are out of town 'til next weekend, may be a psychologically difficult period for a bit. [Bill whines pitiably, and looks for little sobbing violinist emoticon. ;) ]

    Will post VIN, etc., Todd, soon.
