General Discussion / Re: V85 TT Merged Threadfest
« Last post by blu guzz on Today at 05:19:18 PM »
Used V85s will be the hot ticket for a while.  I was at Cadre to ride the V100 and a fellow was taking delivery of a pristine 6,000 mile example and they  had recently sold a nearly new Travel model last week.  This keeps him in business, I am stoked.  BTW, I don't think he will be getting my used V85 to sell.

Since the book calls for 10w60, I use it.  It is only 2 quarts anyway so I figure it must be important.

In North America, I wouldn't be surprised if that is fairly close to the fact.

I have been riding Guzzi for 24 years, and look at about every motorcycle I see, and I see about more Moto Guzzi than Aprilia.  And I'm leaving out Guzzi specific gatherings.   I have little doubt that in NA, Guzzi out sells Aprilia by a fair margin.

All good suggestions. What I envisioned was clamping it down flat (front down) so only the ends stick up and bending the ends down a little bit to change the angle of the pullback. Nothing would really bend - the riser section would have to twist a little bit.

I'll pass on the condolences.  Tony's advice online and in person was honest and researched, either by experience or a lot of digging for the facts. I was fortunate to have been involved in his projects and he in mine.  As many of you know he was a welcome addition to the board.  Antietam, he was pleased the Pantah went a good home.

Following closely behind was Piaggio’s motorcycle sector, which showed off a +19.7% increase, with both Aprilia and Moto Guzzi celebrating their “best results ever” (+30% and +15%, respectively).

From these numbers you can estimate that MG has about twice the sales of Aprila, so in raw numbers the increase in profits for MG was about the same as the increase in profits from Aprila.

Consider  yourself lucky.  I had planned years in advance to attend the 100th anniversary at the Guzzi factory.  I booked a room at a cute little B&B within walking distance of the factory.  During the interim delays, the lodging website got hacked and turned into a wonderful porn display.  The property owner was not at all amused.  I eventually attended the delayed event and the lodging was quite convenient and peaceful.

No, he's right.  I cobbled it together, pasted it on one of Hamlin's shop tool boxes, and then sat on the pic for a dozen years just waiting for this thread so I could wreck havac on everyone's motor from afar.  Man, I thought I was way more cleaver than THAT............... ..........dang.
