Hello,

I'm the new guy, my name is Volker, I'm 60 years old and I'm from Germany.

Having already owned two motorcycles (Honda Sevenfifty from 2003, Triumph Street Triple R from 2010), I didn't really plan to get a new bike. Especially not a Moto Guzzi! Rather a Triumph Thruxton R.
But a visit to a motorcycle show in spring 2017 changed everything! Because there I saw the V7 III Anniversario, and I was so taken with the sight of it that I could only think of this bike :)

With a lot of luck I found a dealer who could still get me a new machine. Since Easter 2017 I am the proud owner of this bike and have not regretted the purchase since then.

Now I have registered here to be able to exchange with you.

Until then

Greetings

Volker

Have had a few airhead beemers, and now a 1971 Ambassador, that needs some TLC.

 Hi I am new to the world of Moto Guzzi after being in the industry with Japanese motorcycles for over 50 yrs pulling wrenches, managing service departments and running dealerships .I bought  # 0 2020 V 7 racer 10 th anniversary bike .Harkens back to when the bikes were more pure .Absolutely love the bike and the attention the chrome type tank gets . I see members listing previous bikes they've owned .Heck guys I would run out of room. A couple of historic bikes I've owned are 1970 Kawasaki H1 500 that I rode in the late seventies and a 1982 Kawasaki KZ 1000 R1 Eddie Lawson replica of which I owned # 256 of only 750 made .Toured through 43 of our great states obviously on varied Japanese motorcycles .Look forward to being a member of this moto Guzzi group .

Hi at all,

I'm 58 and live in the Black Forest in Germany. After many years without a Guzzi I just bought a Griso 1200 SE from 2012 as second bike beneath my Moto Morini Granpasso, modified into a Granferro (presented in 2009 but never put into production). I already owned a 850 T3 California, a V35, a V65 and a 1000 SP/NT, converted into a naked. As an automotive engineer I' m interested in technical improvements and my Griso will be intensely rebuilt, as I picked her up after years of use at the mediterranean sea and slight deteriorations due to the salty climate  :wink:. I searched for over a year, but for corona reasons it wasn' t so easy to get abroad and most countries here in Europe have/had different regulations.

So long, Benedikt

Steve, 58, greater Boston, software
Recently picked up my first guzzi, a '14 Cali Custom with 3k miles.
Plenty of other bikes have been in&out of the garage over the last few years, mostly vintage Japanese resurrections, but two Triumphs as well.

Hello all,

I'm Rich from Kirkland WA, a suburb of Seattle.  56 years old and recently back into motorcycling.  I have a Triumph Bonneville and Guzzi Stornello. 

Both exceptionally fun bikes.  I've replaced factory lighting with LED and done a few mods to streamline and lend a certain dirt track vibe. 

Look forward to meeting other enthusiasts and using the forum as a modification resource !

Rich
