Hello,

I am from Croatia, 46yrs old, mechanical engineer.
Last month I bought Breva 750, 2004, and decided to join this forum.

Way back in 1998, I spent 7 months living and working with the SFOR in Sarajevo, BiH, and drove close to 10K miles (16K+ km) in Bosnia and Croatia.  I don't think I went a single day without wishing that I had a motorcycle in either country.  So many beautiful roads and places to visit.

Hi all! I'm a twenty three year old restaurant manager from the Chicago suburbs. I'm relatively new to motorcycling (interested for a long time but only got my license last year) and have been looking for my second bike for a while now, which with any luck will end up being a Guzzi.

Thank you for having me here!

We should probably look to the Mayans for advice on how to deal with shortages of gasoline and TP . Those folks had chronic shortages of both.

Hi all,
108 pages of listing of Guzzi riders around here! Fantastic! OK, my turn.
My first name is Jean-Yves, I am 52 and work at University (teacher researcher in Geology).
I have travelled a lot for work and not so much for biking, though.
I am living in Lille, close to the Belgium border in N France. Okay, it's flat, and not funny for motorcycling.
I have had small off-road motorbikes when I was teenager, but life passed by and I forgot how much I liked this freedom feelling of riding a motorbike until about 10 years ago, when I had the occasion to do this again as a passenger on a bigger machine (sorry, a Honda CBF1000 set up for touring). It was with my brother, the best connoisseur (hey, initially a French word) in our family. I swore to pass the driving test... and here am I.
In contrast to my brother, who likes technology and performance, I like authenticity, not to say uncertainty in how much the machine is reliable, but the feel of strength and steam... hahaha!
I like Italians (we share Europe with the English, the Germans, the Spanish, and the others... yes, the English too, I said, not a mistake) and Italian style.
I was interested in MG very soon in fact and when I came to the point of choosing a brand and a model, the airplane V engine, the sound, the historical continuity... and the fantastic place these bikes are built at, waoh... I had to go for a Guzzi, no matter the others said is was outdated and unreliable.
My first Guzzi was a V7 Stone of 2012. I loved it but after one year, I wanted more power, and I replaced it with a black Griso 1100 of 2007. It was in 2015. Yet I had not the opportunity of riding it far away or outside the country, I am really found of this machine. I am member of 2 forums in France but I admit that I visit them mostly to grab info. Moving to your forum is an opportunity for looking Guzzis from a different perspective. I jumped because I am planning to upgrade my Griso for longer touring and this is here that I got the most interesting examples of luggage and other specific fits.
As I said I am professor... and you might see this while counting the lines above. Sorry thus, I stop here...
