G'day blokes and blokesses, from the glorious Great Southern region in sou'western West Oz.  Fairly recently retired and looking at trading up to Gutz soon(ish).  Current beast is a Suzuki DR650.  Had at least 1 motorized 2 wheeler for 54 years this year.  Was exclusively Italian for about 20 years, with 3 Ducatis, 2 Benellis, 1 Laverda and 1 MV Agusta.  Always wanted a Gutz, and planning on fixing that with a new V7iii Special.
Good on ya  cobber, a few good Aussies on this forum

  Cheers
Kev

Hello, I've been looking at this forum for a few years and finally joined up. 2015 Cali Custom owner from Central Victoria, Australia.
Serial bike owner with a love for all bikes, I was very close to buying a new V11 LeMans (went with a VTR1000 but still love the V11s) but I never lost the want for a Guzzi. Late 2015 went to buy a GS1200 BMW but before handing over the cash I just had to satisfy my curiosity on how the new 1400s went. Dropped into A1, test ride on the Monday, picked mine up on the Saturday. I probably spend too much time polishing it, but with a bike this nice why not.

Hello,

You can call me GG.
I'm a 50 year old, stay at home mama, and moto-newb.
(I don't think the old Honda 250? I learned on, or the old clutch Lambretta I took my first spill off of in the mid 80's, count.)
Live in Phoenix, so I get the "dry heat" joke. 
I've just passed the MSF BRC, and received my motorcycle endorsement.

So you want a ride report, and pics huh?   :whip2:




Here are our little '16 Honda Metropolitans.  In June, my husband surprised me with the matched set for our upcoming 30th anniversary.  He didn't know the can of worms he was opening, poor thing! 

To say thank you, I purchased our gear (ATGATT all the way), and signed us up for the MSF course.  Once that was done, I started looking for more cc's for us, hence the "can of worms". 
 
Now to the ride report.
These little gems were updated for 2016, and remained unchanged for 2017.  The update included a new look, and thankfuly, more power.  The previous unit's speed was listed around 35 mph, whereas the current model maxes out at 42.  I can hit 42 mph, in 60ish seconds, going down hill, or in 90, on the flat. 

Commuting in stop and go traffic, at 35 mph, is it's sweet spot.  The power delivery is relaxed, but not so much as to be a problem coming off a light.  With tremendous engine breaking, you only have to use the linked brakes when coming to a complete stop.  When tooling the back roads, bumps are a touch harsh, but easily avoidable due to the scoots excellent maneuverability.   

As a whole, the Honda Metropolitan, with it's 22 liter (full face helmet size) storage, is the perfect errand runner, and a sweet Sunday brunch ride.

Hey, who's that guy with Annie Lennox in that picture?  Lucky dude, that ....  :bow:

Be all that as it may, I've got a '55 BSA M21 that has performance parameters that aren't much different than your Hondas there, maybe about +15 MPH to your numbers.

It's amazing how many roads you can ride safely on IF you pay attention to time and traffic flow and ride like you have 10 horsepower.   I'm considering riding mine from southern Virginia to northeast Ohio next year on the back roads, about a 10 hour trip over the mountains.

And thanks for the reminder, I've GOT to remember to sign up for an MSF course.   Riding for 45 years and still shock myself with the things I don't know.

Happy riding!

Lannis

Ha, I'm honored, kind sir, to be worthy of such praise!  That poor sod is the man who puts up with my "mild" Guzzi obsession.  Little does he know, I'm in deep negations for my "big girl" ride, with Dave Richardson of Moto International.  However, the Lucky Dude doesn't have to foot the bill for my new toy, which should sooth him a touch.

I wish we had mellower roads nearby.  Even though the average posted limit is 35, flow of traffic is closer to 55/60.  Hence my interest in a bigger ride.

Friend of mine here just bought an "Anniversario" --- and for a combination of looks and performance, you just can't beat it.   Gets attention like one of my old bikes does whenever he stops, and a smooth, strong ride.

Although when you equip a V7-III with full luggage, you've got something you can tour the world with.   Or anything in between.   Guzzi has hit a home run with these bikes, you CAN'T go wrong!

M 21!
I ran into a guy a couple of years back just north of Nice Fr on a M21 while I was touring on a beemer. He had come all the way from Scotland and was camping along the way. Said the ferry was a bitch! Almost lost it on the wet ramp getting off. He was in his late 70's and a very happy camper.

I guess there is hope for we old guys yet!

Rode this one from John Wells' place in PA, to Brimfield MA for the 2006 BSA International, then to Niagara Falls, then to Toronto OH and back to PA ....





where can i upload photos


I know this isn't the BSA forum or the Big Guys on Little Bikes board, but whenever I can, I try to buck the well-meaning but misinformed (?) tide of sentiment toward "Needs 10 or 15 More Horsepower" or "That's Not Enough Bike" and the like.

We used to go EVERYWHERE on bikes that many people today wouldn't even consider beginner bikes.   It doesn't have to be that way, and new riders need to appreciate that as they decide what it is they really like!

Hello everyone.  Long time rider, first time Guzzi rider here.  I have had a Cali Custom for about a month now and really like it.  I previously had a BMW K1200RS and other BMW's, Harleys, Rice eaters and even a Victory.  I get away for a couple of medium-longish two wheel trips each year.

I look forward to discussing these fine steeds with you all.

Hello all,  Joshua here.

 Just today I purchased my first Moto Guzzi! I have been ridding for many years and a few years back had the pleasure of ridding a few vintage Guzzi's while on vacation in Europe. This set my heart afire and after much searching for the right goose, I settled on one particular bike. Some of you may know her, she has been a topic of conversation on this forum before.

Say hello to Sophia!





Glad to meet you all and glad to be a forum member, I know I will have many questions, this has been a great source of answers in my browsing prior to purchase, please be gentle with me as I am somewhat new to the "forum" thing!

She is not in my possession just yet, shipping takes place in the next day or so. As I have not seen her in person before so I used the sellers image. Thanks Leo!


My heart is racing, not sure if I will survive the wait!!

Sat next to a truck seller on an airplane once.  Fascinating.   I had no idea how many hundreds of combinations of engines, transmission ratios, rear ends and all, that could be put together.   He would take orders for trucks for specific ROADS so it was always in the right gear ... !

Of course, nowadays we always ask ... Is the Norge you're getting an 8-valve?   And if it is, well, you know the question about the flat vs roller tappets!

Hello all,
new to group.  I have a 2000 MG V11 sport.  We just moved to CA from AZ.  I went to DMV and was told I didn't have a federal emissions sticker and have to go to CHP.
A tech from LA dealer told me to check in with Piaggio office HQ in Costa Mesa and they were great.  They promised to provide me a letter to verify compliance and then
hopefully I can get my bike registered here in CA.
Also a shout out to Moto Guzzi Classics.  Josh there did a great job tuning up my bike and getting it all ready to ride because it had be sitting in garage for a while.  It is now running great.

Forgot some protocol here!
Hailing from Vancouver Island, currently riding an '06 Triumph Tiger 955i.
Looking to replace the Tiger likely in the New Year. Current candidates include: GSA, S10 and Stelvio.
Leaning toward S10 though I can't secure a ride locally. Likewise the Stelvio.
Argh! Pains me to live on an island sometimes.

Howdy, I'm TJ, from southeastern Illinois.
I'm a State Farm agent.
I'm into about anything outdoors. I love Jeeps and decided to follow my father in law into the Guzzi world.
My first motorcycle is a V7iii Anniversario. #809of1000 which is weird since all the literature said they were making 750. 
I love it!

Hi y'all! I'm from Gulf Shores, AL and now I have a Guzzi! Well, most of a Guzzi. I like old bikes I currently have a 1971 Honda CB750 cafe racer that's my keeper (ten years and counting) a 1995 Honda Nighthawk, and various dirt bikes and projects. I've stuck to Honda for most of my bikes but I've always wanted a Moto Guzzi. So I found a project for sale this week and bought it. It's a 1973 Eldorado and it's rougher than I was hoping. The original plan was a full resto, but that looks too costly so it may get a slight resto mod to avoid paying through the nose for some stuff. Here's an 'as found' pic and one after a light rinse...




I've got a lot of work ahead of me and I know little to nothing about these bikes. I'll be around lurking or asking questions if I can't find the answers I need in the archives. I'll start a build thread once I actually start working on her. For now I'll be collecting parts and knowledge.
