    Happy Birthday, that is a nice Milano! I am happy to here you are able to ride again. My Aunt had MS when I was younger and it is not fun. We riders take our health for granted everyday we hop on our bikes. I have days I don't ride just because. I hope I can ride many more years and there will be a time someday when I won't feel confident to ride.... until then, Ride On and Ride Safe!

    I picked up a used V 7 iii Special with 990 miles on it. I believe the original owner purchased it in May 2017 from EuroCycle Las Vegas and then took it to Utah. The first service was never done and since there is no dealer in Utah I would either have to take it to Vegas, or do it myself. I was able to easily do it myself thanks to all the great info I found here! The video showing the valve adjustment procedure was especially helpful. Thanks Todd! I will be doing the fuel filter swap next. After a few more miles, I'll see what I think about flashing the ECU. But there's no doubt I need better suspension first!

    What do you think of the GIVI fairing? Is it reasonably quiet, well mounted?

    Congrats! Love to hear on what made you make that step. The 900-3 is a wonderful powerhouse mill. Boring bike otherwise.
    Hope you’ll post your VIN# and related for the first post of this thread. Thanks for the pic, and post often!

    I edited my post with the vin and additional information.

    The XSR900 was a great bike but my wife has been riding with me more lately and the bike wasn't great for two people. Plus, my heart has been with Moto Guzzi for a long time. Almost bought a Griso way back and then a V7 in 2016.

    Mark,

    Congrats on the purchase, nice to see you finally made the journey into the light.

    I was at the shop on Saturday and saw a XSR900 sitting out front with a few other used bikes.
    John said it was a trade for a V7.

    Guess it maybe time for a breakfast/lunch meet & greet.

    Someday i have to get my Stone listed here.

    By quiet, do you mean wind buffeting, or bracketry?
    I didn't think it was doing much for wind management, perhaps because I changed helmets at the same time that I installed the faring. I just took my Victory out a couple days ago without any wind protection, and decided the GIVI is actually making a difference. No buffeting, some creaking- the hardware is anodized by the looks as are the brackets, which are very sturdy. They are sturdy in a slightly different position than I'd prefer, however, and I did have to shim the very bottom mounting point out of concern for the tension that fully tightening that fastener would put on the faring without a little spacer. That's bearing in mind that I have to ride year round and I assume it will get more brittle in the thick of winter. And also that the urban roads I"m traversing are rutted, heaved and under construction causing traction control to activate repeatedly on any given ride, on "1". It's a complete kit with brackets for relocating the turn signals. Had mine painted to match and then used automotive front-end protective vinyl to make the stripes.
