Hi, I'm Lisa. My main hobbies are motorcycling and scuba diving. This is a pix of my Guzzi:2002 Guzzi V11 Le MansI'm the second owner. Bought it with 9,500 miles back in March of this year - took it in for it's 12K service yesterday. It's my first Guzzi and I love it!
My name is Ross, 38 Y.O., from NY.Haven't street ridden much over the past 5-10.All my friends ride Harleys these days.I had an FXDX-T last year. Got rid of it QUICKLY, after 1k mi or so.Very ill-handling bike. Death wobble. Poor chassis design.So now... Guzzi time.Just picked up a clean '04 EV11 Touring.6,400 mi on the odo.Paid a lot for it, but hot bikes and hot chicks ain't cheap, are they?Not a lot of street riding time in my schedule,but did manage to ride 150 miles in the past week ;DLikes:-style-torque curveDislikes:-rear brake pedal (WTF??) (and no cheap fix either ??? )-linked brakes (WTF again)-heel-toe shifter (which I 'kinda' seem to be getting used to, but still, WTF)-Mickey Mouse mirrors (who sells lower profile ones?)-Vibration felt in hand controls kinda sucks.-Seat is shitty. Too low, and shape is a little too cupped.Misc thoughts;Everyone who sees the bike compliments the styling.I'm not too thrilled about the fairing stylenor the turbulence it created (I already took it off).The lower fairing thingies cause motor heat to roast my feet (took them off too).I need tires! Previous owner wore the center of the Mich Macadam tiresfrom too much straight-line riding.The bike is not handling acceptably at the moment due to this.What tires are good??Also- can I put radials?The way bias tires follow grooves and cracks is weird and creepy.In general, my impressions are kinda in-line with the reviews I've read online.The only other person I know that has a Guzzi is my uncle in Italy.I'm not keen on models, but it is really old, it is all red, and I think it's a single cylinder.So then-so far, I haven't been struck by any kind of thunderbolt of passion for the bike.(Like the thunderbolt that my '92 Duc 900SS struck me with :o )I like the new offerings like the Griso, Stelvio and the Vintage (much cooler bags than mine).I dunno- the style of these Guzzis gets me going pretty good,but their function is a question mark so far.(what's up with these valvole idraulico's)I know it's different,,it's not a UJM.Will it be a keeper?Time will tell! Looking forward to finding out...
