    Lovely bike! Life is Good!

    I had Racer out last evening, took it to dinner with my moto buddies up in Redwood City (about 25 miles north of me). I zig-zagged through various routes getting there at the height of afternoon/early evening commute traffic. And then I hopped onto the 101 freeway to burn home afterwards. Racer handles both of these things beautifully! On the twisty zig-zaggy stuff, its light weight and nimbleness makes getting around traffic actually fun. On the fast drone home, it reminds me for all the world of the LeMans V in that it pulls right up to 80 mph and just loves to hang out right there most of the time in top gear, about 4600 rpm, but if you drop down a gear and give it the stick, it'll pop up to over 100 mph without even seeming to blink an eye.

    I remain in love with this machine! :D

    That is probably the best paint job I've seen with that white stripe. Wow.

    My VIN is ZGULDUB08HM000027
    My engine number is 012712

    I'm in Austin, TX. Where do I find the production date? Is it hidden under the wiring on the headstock?

    Got it! First NEW bike ever...I normally buy pre-depreciated bikes but I couldn't wait for this one. Got some plans for some bitchin mods.

    OK ok not a lot of mods yet I just picked it up. MOD 1 = Wheel swap for the cast wheels so I don't have to polish chrome OR worry about tubes! And they look super bitchin so theres that :rock:

    Great list of options!
    I re-ordered them in terms of value.

    • Ohlins front end
    • Brembo brake upgrades
    • full performance exhaust/fueling solutions
    • 820cc big bore

    That said... the 820 cc upgrade is absolutely fabulous!
    Do 'em all!

    My friend and I went for a ride on Angeles Crest Highway last Thanksgiving weekend.
    He rented Todd's V7 III R with the aforementioned modifications (and more!).
    Amazing bike!

    I am new to Moto Guzzi and picked up a new 2017 V7 III Special about a week ago. The VIN is ZGULDUA05HM000178. It was manufactured June 2017.

    I am getting use to this style of bike again. Only have around 150 miles so far, The ride is fun and totally different from my other bikes (Sport Touring stuff). I definitely will want some suspension upgrades in a while. I tried emailing info at guzzitech a few weeks ago to ask about figuring out the spring rates that would work best for me. I know the standard springs in kits like from Matris (FM108KE) would not be the proper rate. I need a weight range of 210-240 pounds. I am planning to ride casually and commute.

    I also plan to get the ECU remap. I don't want to have to deal with lean running issues like pinging (from what I've read here).

    I hope to have a good experience with the bike. Like any forum for a specific type of vehicle, I see a lot of threads on issues people encountered. It make me a little hesitant but will just have to hope for the best and enjoy the bike.
