    That's awesome. So far i installed the Dart flyscreen, folding toe pegs from the gtm store, and modified the front and rear turn signals with Led to have marker lights. Next on the list is a new rear suspension. Being 185lbs its harsh like everyone says

    Hello All,
    A new member here. Just bought my V7 iii Racer(2018 model) last month from La Moto in Arlington. VIN: ZGULDUB08HM000111 | No: 0221. Bike is stock, with upgrades planned. Meanwhile enjoying so much reading the forum posts. Grew up in Rome, as a child seeing the Carabinieri (Police) Guzzi's and they were so chic and elegant. Took a hiatus from riding for 25 years and recently completed the MSF course and got the Racer. She is beautiful and fun. Just wish MG had installed better forks with the Matris fork cartridge kit by default.

    Congrats and welcome to the GT Forum & Guzzi Famiglia!
    I agree if the Racer gets the Ohlins rear shocks, they really should've given the bike some decent forks. Now to let it breathe and some sound! Enjoy... Post often!

    Hi everyone just jumped into the moto guzzi hype to see what it's all about. I came from a ducati streefighter 1098 as well as monster 900. I'm really loving this thing. The power is lacking but it sure is growing on me. Also this blue is killer especially in person

    image.jpeg image.jpg image.jpeg View attachment 17643 View attachment 17643 Hi everybody,
    After being sidelined by MS for the last few years I have finally built myself into someone who can ride a motorcycle again, although with some limitations. I've been riding an R-3 for the last year but just traded it in on this Milano as a 70th birthday present to myself. It is so great to be on a Guzzi again, I never thought that this could happen and am eternally grateful to the scalp acupuncturists and physical therapists that made it possible.
    The first thing that I want to do to the V7 is narrow the handlebars, is there a proper way to remove the bar weight attachment fixtures so that I can keep the bar end weights?
    Starting to look different already, I'm having fun putting my mark on it.

    Hi and also welcome to the GT Forum & Guzzi Famiglia. Good having defectors from that other Italian brand. Though I owned a new in ‘91 900SS and have great memories of my silliness with that bike. Anyway, glad to have you aboard, and hope you’ll add your VIN# and related for the first post of this thread. Also, see the Store tab above for the hundreds of products we offer for a more enjoyable ride.

    Tom, right? Sorry to hear this... but awesome to see you back on a Guzzi! Welcome back! Hope you’ll also post your VIN# and related for the first post of this thread.
    I have a few bar options on the Store tab above that work well, as I think you are limited to cutting the stock bars down because of the bend and switchgear. You can lathe up a new plug for the stock bar ends on anything you want though.

    I'm usually reluctant to post specifics to the web, but I'll add the VIN in the spirit of supporting the community. No pics of me though, I don't think the bike looks the same as all the others-- though the differences are pretty subtle. Here's current state of: ZGULDU008HM000127 at about 3K miles.

    To Date:
    Givi Windscreen (I thought it would have more rake when I bought it, tinkering pends)
    Zard brand Euro 4 homologated mufflers (yes, I *want* to have cats & the sound is what I want)
    Rhizoma rear tail and front turns, brake resevior cover, Aprilla mirrors, leather side satchel
    Elongated brake 'pedal', upgraded horn-- dead already back to Denali,
    M/G Solo seat;
    All new synthetic fluids;

    V7 Front.jpg V7 Port Side.jpg V7 Starboard.jpg V7 Tail.jpg

    Looking forward to:

    Tires
    Fuel tuning, perhaps
    Darnit, guess I'll have to do the suspension after all....
    Better brake pads

    Pipedream:
    At least 20% more power/torque. That would bring me joy. Seriously. At least that much.

    This should be a "for sure" it's a new bike with the fueling done right by Todd.

    Thanks for posting... reality is that the VIN# is something anyone can obtain by walking by the bike, along with your plate # - I don't think any state makes it easy to source anything relevant from them anyway. VIN# is just the fingerprint of the bike, that's all. ;)

    As long as nobody has hacked the RMV, 'cause that would never happen! Just kidding, I agree it's in plain view whenever the bike is parked in a public area. I'm just old and cranky enough to enjoy knocking www.
    Thanks for tuning up the post pics & text-- it looks much better!
