    Just traded in my 2016 V7II for this 2019. Using this “lock down” as an excuse to do all the mods now, so my time will be occupied since it’s too cold to ride here in CentraL NY. Dealer in Goshen, NY delivered it (3 hours away) and picked up my old bike. So far it’s only got 7 miles on it. Haven’t even ridden it since I added the pipes (SAS/Evap delete) along Todd’s new map. Lowered the front an inch by cutting the spacers inside, still waiting for 1 inch lower rear shocks from Todd. Signal lights and other misc items still in progress.

    Greetings from Cincinnati. Purchased this V7 Milano today from Enzo over at Cadre Cyle. Vin: ZGULDU010JM000119

    Tried the V7 and the V9 back to back yesterday. Pretty clear which one I preferred and I'm a big guy too. My 10 mile drive home ended up being 30 miles. The info around this forum has been really helpful. Thanks!

    Thanks Todd! Have my eyes on several GTM things. Just working on getting through my break in period first.

    Enzo and the guys were great. Easy going and just normal guys. Social distancing and still working and selling.

    How are those Baak pipes and where did you get your license plate holder?

    Hope you'll keep your $ here in the U.S.
    I can do a similar plate mount if you really want one. I do offer this version; https://gtmotocycles.com/products/gt-rx-shock-mount-tag-bracket
    If you plan on actually riding your bike and putting real miles on it, be forewarned of durability and little follow-up, plus return shipping to Europe. Just FYI.

    The plate mount was from a company called MOSKIS - but it's designed for EU plates, so I had to modify it. Plus it's discontinued for the V7's. (I got it a while back.) Although I love the look, there is a little bit of vibration so if Todd can make something similar that would be your best bet.

    The Baak pipes are nice, but you'll have to deal with the international lag.

    Great looking motorcycle, especially in grey colour, I love it !!!

    If you will go for a longer journey consider to put touring motorcycle windshield HONDA XL 1000V VARADERO on your bike. It will have a massive influence for comfort of your trip and make your ride more safe as well. Safety first and with motorcycle windshields you will take care of it, because you won't be susceptible for strong gusts of wind and gusts from trucks. Many types in many shapes windshields available at MotorcycleScreens.eu like above for example HONDA XL 1000V VARADERO and they have universal for cruisers as well. For V7 maybe something like that : motorcyclescreens.eu/home/439-u2t-universal-naked-touring-screen

    Today is the day!

    I have officially joined Team Guzzi with my purchase of a 2018 Moto Guzzi V7 III Carbon Shine from the fine folks at International Motorsports in Langley, BC.

    VIN#ZGULDUC14JM000099
    #0806 / 1921
    D.O.P. 5.5.20

    Trading in my 1976 Honda CB500T (I will miss her dearly) for this Carbon Shine concludes the vintage phase of my motorcycle life and ushers in the exciting "modern classic" phase.

    Here's hoping il mio trattore cromato is my forever bike. Looking forward to racking up at least 100,000 kms on the odometer.

    I just purchased a carbon dark from them.
    The price was too good to pass up.

    They're blowing out some of their 2018 special edition models, below cost. I think they moved all of the Carbon Darks but they may have one or two Shines left and maybe a Milano.

    Just like you said, it was a deal that I couldn't pass up.
