I lived in Bethesda for about 45 years, but moved to rural NC to get away from the city.  At least you're a little closer to nice riding country than Bethesda is.  Plus you have Growler's brew pub.

Hi Doc,

Maybe you can hook up with our own John Boettcher when he is on a trip to Poland to install industrial furnaces!   

My son and I rode a pair of old MZs on the Isle of Man a couple years ago.    Nice bikes.    Be careful on that Hayabusa and that ZX9R!

Triple Jim - I've lived in Gaithersburg for 30+ years ( except for military "extended vacations" to various worldly garden spots) after growing up in Bethesda.  Moved out here when it was still rural on 3 sides.  Civilization has encroached on me, but I can still get out to some nice rural riding by going west or north.  I'm looking at central/western NC for retirement myself.  Gotta get away from "the California of the East" (i.e. Maryland).

My name is Anthony Riselenger.  I live in El Paso Texas USA.  I've been a member on this forum since early 2009.  I've only posted about 5 times or so.  I didn't want to clutter up the board.  I've been riding Moto Guzzi's since 1988.  I currently own several Moto Guzzi's.  I've been working on these bikes as a hobby for about 20 years.  A few years ago I attended Guzzi rally's in different parts of the US.  I haven't been doing as much cross country riding these days as my job seems to be requiring more of my time.  I hope to be able to retire soon and get in more time in the saddle.  So in the mean time I'll try to hang out here more often.

As you may have noticed, the standard for 'cluttering up the board' 'round here is pretty high (or low).   Not only would 5 posts since 2009 not clutter it up, neither would 500 or 5000!!

Get retired and bring it on!   ;-T

I picked this area because of Kerr Reservoir.  I put a few photos in this recent thread:  http://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=67284.0

Obviously the western part of the state is better if you like riding in the mountains more than playing in water.

Nice pictures & looks like a nice area to live.  I was a "water baby" from junior high school days through college - lifeguarding helped pay for college & the beach was only 2.5-3 hrs away.  As traffic to the beach got worse & worse, I turned my focus more to the west & the mountains.  That's where I tend to do most of my riding anymore.  Deep Creek lake in western MD is the best of both worlds, with water & hilly riding to boot, and the 3 hr ride out there is as much fun as the destination itself!

Hi All - Kevin here

Going on 66 proud owner of a lovely 1997 Cali 110 I for 3 months now, have always dreamed of having a Guzzi since riding my bro Kiwi Roy's V11 up in Vancouver a year or so back. One son in L.A. with a new V7 Stone - just been up there & had a short spin on that - like my Cali better though, bit of a heavy old girl but once she starts rolling down the road - ahh Bliss  :)

Living in Auckland, New Zealand first bike was an NSU Supermax 250, then a Matchless 500cc  a Triton - wicked Norton / Triumph combo that I managed not to kill myself on luckily. Latterly a 650 Suzuki Savage for the past ten years or so- I have seen the light now, Roy did warn me not to test ride a Cali or I'd fall in love with her.

Cheers,

Kevin

Dave - 20 years ago, I spent 7 months traveling in Bosnia and Croatia, & I constantly was wishing I had a motorcycle rather than a truck.  One question, though.  In those days, border crossings between Croatia, Bosnia & Hungary were somewhat of an ordeal due to regular monumental backups (several hours).  Since the political situation in Bosnia hasn't really changed a lot since those days, do you know if the border-crossing situation has improved much?

Hi Guys and Girls!

It's been around 5 years since my last Guzzi but I'm enjoying being back. I've owned a bunch of different models since the seventies including:
-750 S3
-Le Mans 2
-Daytona
-Centauro

My new Guzzi is a 1990 Le Mans 1000 (mark 5) which is in good used nick for its age. The only mods appear to be a braced swing arm and a heavy duty battery plate. I've had to replace wheel bearings, swing arm bearings,  steering head bearings, fork seals and the rear bevel seal so far. It's had a few things re painted and repaired but the frame appears straight and true. The only things left on my to do list is getting the right front disc ground and replacing the bevel cover gaskets to stop a minor oil leak.

The engine is strong and the bike runs and idles very nicely. So far it's been a blast reliving that old school handling. My other bike is an 2006 Benelli TnT so it's quite a change jumping off one onto the other  :o

Hi All

Ralf her from the Middle of Germany.

I´m 53 years old and buy my first Guzzi in 1980. It was a LeMans 3. Now and many Guzzi later I drive a T3. At the moment I'm trying to restore a 750 S.

I have a couple of questions, because the S is quite a wreck.

I'm not usually much of a café racer fan, but I have to admit that a member of the Nations Capital Norton Owners group (MD, DC, northern VA members primarily) has a CX500 that he's done a BEAUTIFUL job of turning into a café racer.  It actually fits right in visually with the Nortons, BMW airheads, Guzzis (a couple) & other assorted 60s & 70s bikes that show up for our regular meetings.  Too bad I don't have a picture or 2 for you.

Hi Ralf, welcome to Wild Guzzi.
Also own a 750S. There is a great thread concerning rebuilding one here.

http://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?topic=59430.0

Or is there a specific question someone here might be able to help with?

Greetings All,

I have been riding for a number of years and after drooling over the Norge for the past few, I have decided to explore making one my own.

Currently ride a Kawasaki Versys, have previously owned a Tiger 955i, V-Strom, R6 and GS500.  As my riding tends to be about 80% touring now, thought it was the time to get a bike to reflect that.

At present I live in Southwestern Ontario, but am in the process of moving to the U.S. once my Spousal Green Card is approved (married a yank in December).

Oh yeah, I am also an ordained minister - know of any churches in the warm states that need a progressive, open-minded, slightly irreverent, beer drinking minister?   :D

Greetings All,

I have been riding for a number of years and after drooling over the Norge for the past few, I have decided to explore making one my own.

Currently ride a Kawasaki Versys, have previously owned a Tiger 955i, V-Strom, R6 and GS500.  As my riding tends to be about 80% touring now, thought it was the time to get a bike to reflect that.

At present I live in Southwestern Ontario, but am in the process of moving to the U.S. once my Spousal Green Card is approved (married a yank in December).

Oh yeah, I am also an ordained minister - know of any churches in the warm states that need a progressive, open-minded, slightly irreverent, beer drinking minister?   :D

"Minister" .... "you keep using that word.   I do not think it means what you think it means!"    ;)

Those sound like bikes I'd like.   Light, good riding positions ... My son has a Versys and it's a great bike, sort of like an easier-to-muscle-around Stelvio.   

The US is pretty big ... where are you moving to?    Over the years, we've established that there are good roads WHEREVER you go, including the sand hills of Florida, the swamps of Louisiana, and the plains of Kansas ....
