RentAGuzzi Motorcycle Rentals & Tours – Los Angeles CA
  1. Ciao Guest, Happy 2019! Note all of our products and custom bike builds are now on our sister site; GTMotoCycles.com. You may need a new username and password to get into the new GTM Store system - pending and past order info is available there. NOTE: We are not Amazon, we are a tiny one man operation. Thanks for your patience on orders. GuzziTech is now back to our origins; Enjoy the Guzzi Community Forum and Resources here. There is zero tolerance on personal attacks and off-site links to other Forums or competing products. Note there's decades of Guzzi hands-on experienced help on this site, all whom give endless amounts of their time for free - be courteous. For those who are new here, the owner of this site (Todd - GT-Rx®) has been immersed in Guzzis since 1999. He's raced and wrenched for two-thirds of his life, both Pro dirt-track and road-race, and contributed to Cycle World Magazine from 2000 until 2007. He began Guzzi dyno performance modifying and fuel tuning in 2001, and has been wrenching them full time since 2007. His GT MotoCycles workshop has been open for ~4 years in Orange, CA. We do not have a phone number for this site or GTM, we're online only... do not ask us to call you. Click on the Service tab above for more info or to book an appointment -- it is not a retail shop to visit.

In a few short years GuzziTech.com will hit the 20 year mark of providing advice and tech tips for free.

    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

    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.
