    [​IMG]Hello All,
    Picked up my black n blue 2017 Stone last week and finally took it out today for a 50 mile ride. This is my first Moto Guzzi and really enjoying it. I've ridden ever since my Taco minibike in 1970 and owned lots of used bikes. Always loved the GUZZI style- so glad I pulled the trigger on one for my first new bike!

    There's a good story to this bike already. The 'original owner' was a young guy who won it on Let's Make a Deal. Problem is he didn't even have a driver's license yet and was in the process of moving to California from Seattle. He arranged to pick it up in Seattle at Moto International, then he put an ad on craigslist. I had been motorcycle shopping for a couple of months and basically hated everything I tried out. I did like the Moto Guzzis so was already starting to look for one. I contacted him, we set a price, and I picked this gem up on 3/3/18 at Moto International and paid him via Paypal. Must give a shout out to Candace at MI who facilitated all the paperwork since the guy was already back in Cali.

    An update: Looks like I’ll be selling this Anniversario. Found a buyer and just figuring out delivery and title transfer details. I loved its looks and performance, but just never got used to the seating position and the foot pegs hitting my ankles. I am planning, if all goes well, to replace it soon with a V7 II Racer, either 2015 or 2016 — got leads on still-new versions of each. Taking a bit of a financial loss of course, but worth it to me to get a bike I genuinely love, rather than one I tolerate.

    And so it begins... you'll always have at least one. I still have this unicorn available; https://www.guzzitech.com/forums/threads/for-sale-gt-rx®-v7r-820-quattrovalvole.18041/ - basically brand new.

    Did you consider swapping the stock foot pegs for rear sets?

    That's what I did on my '15 Stone as I did not like the stock pegs hitting my ankles either. I tested a racer and liked that setup.

    v7-III-Anniversario_main_image_anniversario.jpg I must be getting really old because for the life of me, I cannot understand what you guys mean by "the stock foot pegs hitting your ankles". What are you talking about here? Hiting them when? How? You really have me stumped.

    I did think about that, but as far as I can tell there are no rear sets available yet for the V7III. I even contacted Sato, who said they probably will make some at some point but don't have concrete plans to do so yet. I also came close to ordering pull back bars and a replacement seat to change the sitting position, but finally decided to cut my losses and become a cafe racer dude...

    For me the foot pegs on the V7III are exactly where I put my feet down when stopped. I keep trying to get used to putting my feet down either in front of or behind them, but just can't get it right. It's not a major problem, but more of a constant annoyance. And it means I often get my pant leg caught on the peg when pulling out. If you ride in traffic a lot, as I do, it begins to wear on you.

    20180318_143333.jpg Hey folks!

    My Griso 1200 8V SE now got a little brother or sister?

    It's a 2015 V7II Special. Bought four weeks ago totally stock with less than 4.000km on it.

    Dart screen
    Magura handle bar
    Highsider mirrirs
    Black headlight ring
    Indicators
    Tail tidy and small mud guard front and back
    Legend gear luggage system
    Sprint air filter
    Etc....

    Have a nice day...

    Welcoming Trish to the GT & Guzzi Famiglia. Her bike went through an extensive transformation at my shop to lower and customize to her liking.
