  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 opinionated 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.

    I was thinking the same thing. I'm going to call my guzzi dealer on Tuesday and see if they have different part numbers.

    I'd bet they do. The Roamer stock bars are quite a bit higher that the Bobber's.

    Picked up my V9 on Monday, have put some bar end mirrors on, (stock mirrors just had to go) and Mivv pipes, taken the DB killer out but kept the baffle in, sounds amazing! Put 70 miles on it so far. Really liking this bike over anything ive previously rode so far :)
    Went out for cruise around the coast this evening once the British rain had finally stopped.

    The Bobber cables are in fact a different part number than the Roamer's. My local dealer didn't have them on hand so I'm not sure how much shorter they are, my guess is around 3".
    Either way it was going to be about $160.00 in parts plus the time spent to swap everything over. Instead I made some "stealth" riser extensions.

    Waiting on the paint to dry. I can't wait to throw them on and get back to riding.

    Got the hardware and installed my riser extensions yesterday. I think it looks and feels great. When I get some bar end mirrors it will finish off the look.

    Just wanted to randomly post after having read a bunch of threads.
    I'm one of those people who only recently learned of MG. I've also just recently (2.5 years) got involved in motorcycles.
    I went to the Red River rally in NM this year to lead/tail the demo rides for MG. I fell for the V9 Bobber and bought one about 3 weeks later.
    After some reading today, turns out a lot of people had negative things to say about the styling when it came out. Lol
    I'm just getting to the first service and ran across this site doing research and looking at pictures on instagram. Looks to be quite a place to get info.

    That's about it for now.

    I finally got some bar end mirrors mounted to my drag bars. Also my wife bought me this pannier bag for my birthday. Made by a company called Iron and Resin. It attaches/detaches quickly and comes with a strap to turn it into a messenger bag. It's great when riding to work or the grocery store, or doing light moto-camping.

    "4. Fit & finish is excellent EXCEPT that the handlebars are crooked. I don't know if it shows well in the 2nd picture above, but the right side handlebar riser is slightly rearward relative to the position of the left one, as though the top triple clamp isn't drilled correctly. I'm going to see if there's any slop in the holes that will allow me to align them correctly."

    That was a misalignment of the bar? I was about to loosen the forks and straighten them out. I'll try your fix first.

    "After some reading today, turns out a lot of people had negative things to say about the styling when it came out. Lol"

    IMO, the first rule of MG riding is not to not to care what anyone else says about your choices.

    "That was a misalignment of the bar? I was about to loosen the forks and straighten them out. I'll try your fix first." - Yep. It's fine now. After the first loosening and retightening of the bolts underneath the risers, it went back to crooked again, so I just turned the bars to full lock and pulled back on the "forward side" and it's stayed there.

    "IMO, the first rule of MG riding is not to not to care what anyone else says about your choices." - Agreed. I've lost count of how many self-proclaimed "bikers" I've met who never even heard of Moto Guzzi.

    So true, either they shake their heads or pretend to know what MG are and get it horribly wrong. If another Guzzi guy is around when this happens, I like to say "they're made by the same company that makes Vespas." That way, you inform the public and get to see a Guzzi guy's head explode lol.

    Here she is about halfway between the Santa Cruz mountains and Alhambra where I went for a conference. In one week's time, I put over 1,000 miles on her. I don't expect to keep up that pace... thankfully.
