If they would just change the name of the  organization from “the clan “they might get more participation from folks on this side of the pond

The MG website says "The new look for the king of motorbikes is a homage to the tenth anniversary of Moto Guzzi’s proud owners, the official community of owners and fans of Mandello machines." (my underline)

So, am I not qualified to own one?  I've owned a Moto Guzzi since 1983....which is what, two or three years more than ten ;)
But seriously- what does the ten year anniversary refer to?  The V7 has been out since 2007 or so, hasn't it?

That tank won't look anywhere near as nice once they stick all the stupid-people stickers on it. One of the things I loved about old bikes, no stickers on the tank.

Cool!

I've never know anyone who belonged to "the clan" or "the Klan."

fits in well with your "Bad Chad" persona!

In light of the logo, it should be "the flock."

I didn't get one of those with my G5.
And to paraphrase TKelly, I refuse to join any club that would have me.

Amen.

I think it was Graucho Marx who said "I would not want to belong to any club that would have me as a member!"

High standards are important!

I'm assuming Wild Guzzi is a gaggle.....

Never heard of the Guzzi Clan :rolleyes: And I wish I never had. Now, I do not belong to any club, but for a brand, that has existed since 1921 with a gentleman image, to choose the clan show a lack of taste IMO. YMMV.

Definitions of Clan:

a group of close-knit and interrelated families (especially associated with families in the Scottish Highlands).

a family, especially a large one.

a group of people with a strong common interest.


Just another case of someone trying to usurp the meaning of a word for their own agenda.

Yep!  and that, IMO, is what makes the internet so much fun.

"Clan" has a totally different meaning in Europe.  Trying to force an "agenda" on verbage is completely misguided.

I associate the term clan with Scotland. Not Italy. Not with the KKK. Would probably have been more appropriate to have used something like Familia to tie the owners group to the language spoken in Guzzi’s land of birth.

But getting away from virtue signaling and an extremely poor marketing decision and back to the Ten…this from the link….

“The Ten version’s Arrow exhaust is also available as an optional for all bikes in the Moto Guzzi V7 family”

Please call in advance when arriving to purchase so the surgical suite can be prepped for kidney removal and sufficient time can be given to notify the recipient.

Thanks TWA, sometimes I wonder about this place.

The klan that I assume most of us in NA are associating the name with is spelled with a FREAKING K, hence the KKK, not the CCC.  Any of you remember your other half reading Clan fo the Cave Bare, back in the 80s?  A clan, is not The Klan. 

If it's too hard to understand, then yes don't become a member.  But if you can get by your illogical fear of having to wear a pillow case over your head, then maybe you might find some more friends.

Those might be two entirely different clans.  One group for Ursus, the other for spelunking nudists.
