    Thanks!!! ,

    Bought both on Amazon while looking for fork bags. Both were actually mens purses I had a friend who works in leather add attaching straps made from the shoulder straps of the purses . I just looked back in my order history and both are not available anymore from that seller. But if you look hard enough you might find something similar. Maybe do a Cylinder mend ours or shoulder bag etc.

    That's really smart! Thanks. Beautiful bike. I'm always torn by the racer and if I should have gotten it, then I get back on my stone and life feels right. Ha. I feel like I need a Stone, a Racer and a Special.

    Hey guys, I just wanted to introduce myself. I just got my first Moto Guzzi today. I traded my 2007 Road Star 1700 for a 2013 V7 Stone. I only have 10 miles on the bike so far but I'm pretty impressed. I was afraid that it would feel underpowered (previously owned a Bandit 1200), but the bike's light weight really gives it some pep, and definitely feels quicker than the barge that was the Road Star. This is my 9th bike in as many years of riding, but my first "exotic" bike (i.e. something other than a Japanese bike). Definitely looking forward to putting some miles on the Guzzi and see if it speaks to me.

    Oh, and here are some pics.

    Welcome insignia100.
    Love the bike, but what's the hot spot on your muffler near the passenger peg? Anyone know if that's normal?

    I thought that blue on the muffler could be caused by bad plug caps?

    Any other symptoms of bag plug caps other than the bluing? Because the bike runs great. Thinking if that was the cause, its probably already been fixed.

    I'm not sure if I'm considered knowledgeable here or not anymore, but un-burned fuel re-ignites at the cat-con in the muffler in this instance. Often actual fire can be seen exiting the muffler when this happens.

    Bit late getting these on here but finally a good opportunity. Top pic is my buddy on Todd's V7iii Racer 820. WOW - what a bike. Anyone visiting SoCal and looking for a ride, look no further

    Second is my v7ii Stone. Running great with a GT re-flash and MRA windscreen. Alas now I want everything that is on that racer too...

    Photos taken on the CA 33, North of Ojai. An excellent ride for anyone who hasn't been. Pavement is immaculate, views are great, and we had almost no traffic even on a perfect Saturday for riding

    Today: My brandy-new V7III Racer and me...

    At the dealer taking delivery, and the bike parked at home in my garage after a 50 mile ride. Woo Hoo!

    171004-3463.jpg 171004-3465.jpg

    2017 vintage, VIN serial number portion x000037.

    It says "96" on the upper fork yoke. Is that significant? Seems to me the V7II Racer the dealer had in stock also had "96" on the upper fork yoke. Just a coincidence?

    onwards!
