    Figured that since I've been posting here for a few weeks, I should introduce myself and my bike. First Moto Guzzi I have ever seen, let alone owned. I bought it from the original owner, sold new at Sloan's in Murfreesboro TN. Vin EM200229. Started life as a 2014 V7 Stone, but I changed out the tank and the seat and made it into the lovely creature you see before you today. Cafe Racer --> Backroad Bandit

    Ciao tutti!

    My father handed down his ‘84 V65C to me but I have always wanted to purchase a bike myself so that we can ride together. That day has finally come...Say hello to Elena!

    2020 V7 III Stone S
    #098/750

    Funny enough I sat on the #000 bike! But it looked a lil roughed up so I went for a newer unit.

    Bought this from BMG Motorsport in Goshen, NY (literally down the road from my parents house). Brendan, August and the back crew are phenomenal people who LOVE bikes and provide top class service. Thanks guys!

    Todd, thank you for your invaluable advice about these beautiful machines. I’ve learned so much in the short amount of time I’ve been around this forum. Looking forward to working together to bring the “anima” out of this bike.

    happy riding

    Wow, #000 really..? That's kind of amazing. Was it at the same dealer?

    Yes, I was very surprised when I saw that! Out of all places, a small dealership in upstate NY. Might have been used, I don't remember but it didn't look as pristine as the bike I ended up buying

    Well, as George Costanza's father might say, "I'm back baby!" Former Guzzi owner here, took a detour through Triumph, and am now back on a Guzzi. I've got nothing bad to say about Triumph -- still have a soft spot for British and once-British bikes -- but this new V7III Stone S caught my eye and wouldn't let it go. Did a test ride and remembered how much I am a fan of weird motors! So, as of this morning I am the owner of #290/750 V7III Stone S. I'm super happy about it! I took a long, two hour route home from the dealer, and it was an 'effin blast to ride!

    Just the facts:
    VIN ZGULDU021LM000254
    Purchased 3-27-21, LaMoto in Arlington VA.

    I purchased the same model back in January. It is still in storage with the dealer but I will take delivery in about 3 weeks after my vaccinations are complete- trying to be patient. Once I have the bike I'll post my photos as well. Congratulations and enjoy!

    I'm the second owner of '14 V7 Special ZGULWUA15EM200069 -- purchased from the original owner who'd set it up for full touring 2 up with hard cases/racks and windshield for riding with his wife, having done Sturgis, Florida, Dragon's Tail all from NY. A little over 22k miles. I removed the racks/bags and fairing (as I've a second bike better suited for touring.) It's a bunch of fun, sounds great, really zippy.

    The rear suspension feels... vague? Squatty? Definitely something to get resolved, as it's still on the original rear shocks. I don't know how much of that is due to it being a twin shock and my being used to a big mono shock ADV bike, and how much of it is wear and tear. The other thing I'd like to figure out asap are the mirrors. They're large and provide poor visibility to the rear -- would like to figure out a swap. Either way, it's a blast to ride.

    Congrats, welcome and thanks for posting. Appreciate you posting your VIN# and related. If you get bit by the Guzzi bug, you'll never be without one (or more).
    There's an entire thread dedicated to suspension here; https://www.guzzitech.com/forums/threads/v7c-s-suspension-thread.12618/ -- the stock suspension is woefully in adequate, especially if you've spent time on a modern monoshock. While you'll never get anywhere near the same ride, I do have well researched offerings in the online STORE linked at the top of the page.
    Hope to see you posting often.

    IMHO - The pipes on the V7 Special have a nice upsweep look and aren’t too long
    E9AE099C-1A06-4DC4-AFCD-6C72EE9A06DF.jpeg

    The gray stones pipes like mine used to look, are Way too long and Large.

    The black bike although one of the newer stones it’s pipes look somewhat shorter ??
    Is it just the angle ?

    Welcome -
    Nice Verde satinato - I was looking at some bikes they had when I was shopping.
    Are those Tires and Chrome / Statin fenders part of the Rough package ?

    Too bad about your "Broken Shire" !
    Is that why you moved the the Colonies ?

    Thanks Don,

    I haven't changed a thing yet - its all stock. Tires behave nicely on the gravel roads around me too.

    Family name is from Cornwall, so yes I expect crushing poverty was a factor! ;-)
