  1. Ciao Guest - we've been proud to harbor such wonderful Guzzisti camaraderie since 2005, for FREE. Times have changed, and so have the attitudes and expectations of far too many. Starting Jan 1, 2020, we will likely be shifting to a paid to participate format. You will still be able to read for free. This should alleviate all of the negativity that the free social media channels have created. If you are a donor or customer of ours, you're in, just use the Contact tab above if your account is not already promoted, or you can Upgrade your account once signed in. Or the Donate tab above is another option. We look forward to continuing this service to the Guzzi community, but it is not cheap or easy to host and maintain. We wish you the best for the Holidays and in the New Year.

    Nice bike, did you just buy a new one? The reason I ask, I was at the OC Guzzi dealer, and they had a bike that was sold sitting there, and it either said Kaitlin or Karen on the tag, as the person it was sold too......

    Well, I got it, will enter the VIN and take some pics tomorrow. I trailered it home from San Diego, yeah, I wimped out and did not ride it home but figured better to be safe than sorry. I took the trailer back with the bike on it, to the U-Haul place, and rode the bike home from there, about 8 miles. I really like the way it rides, but in all honesty, have really nothing but a dated Rebel to compare it too. I think I am shifting into 3rd gear a bit too early....what speed should I be doing when I shift into 3rd? Thanks for all the support, will be taking it over to Todd for the after break in service.

    My 2018 V7III, Carbon Dark VIN#ZGULDUC0XJM000177 DOP 10/12/19.
    So here it is, probably my 5th ride and furthest from my house. Went and got some gas for the first time ever, only got a small amount, but wanted to see how easy the cap was to get off and just get one under my belt. Love the bike, and yes, the red IS that bright.

    Don't worry about speed/RPM/gear. There's a broad torque curve. Just go by feel and don't rev past 4500 during break in. 3rd is a pretty good all-around gear. I probably use 3rd for most slow city riding. 1st and 2nd for crawling. I'm "cruising" in 4th most of my commute. 5th if no one is in front of me. The gear ratios is one of the only complaints I have about the V7III. 3rd and 4th are too different so 4th should be lower, 5th is maybe ok. 6th should be higher.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg The good folks at Gustafsson Plastics made me a windscreen that fits my stock mounts, doesn't roar, and put a good bit of color on the bike at a reasonable price. They are great people to work with. The doesn't roar comment was fanciful thinking, it was loud AF, I cut it down twice, this is the Mark III version.

    Just got my new plates! What the heck kind of screws are used for the License Plates, like they have a permanently attached washer or something? Really like the bike, fun to ride around town, like it under 55 mph......for now. Anyone else see a red face?
