"Please provide a picture of the part that is missing."
The latest is that they're pretending to not understand me or what part is missing. The latest message says "Please provide a picture of the part that is missing."
Assume they're sincere and send photos showing the part on the one that has the screw, and the hole where it goes on the one that's missing the screw. I've bought parts from far east sellers who genuinely don't understand much English, but once I get my idea across, they're very helpful.
It's like those emails I get where it says "if you don't get this email call us at 800-800-8000." Or the teacher I had who'd enter the room and say "Ok -- everyone who's not here go stand by the wall."
I'm getting a lot of "I ride a [insert snob appeal bike here] but I had to come look at yours anyway."
I am one of those who always puts the bike in neutral. Sorry, but, I feel the chances of being rear ended are small enough that I don't worry about it.Yes, you can now post about all the people you know or heard about being killed from a rear impact.
After 2 1/2 years and 25,000 problem laden miles on my 2014 V7 Stone, I remarked to the MG dealer that I have spent a thousand dollars on cab fare and have yet to make it between oil change intervals without a break down or repair. He replied, "well, if you ride it, it's gonna break; and you've put a lot of miles on this bike..."
Maybe pronouncing it Moto-Goot-Zee would have helped make it sound Italian.
Perhaps, I would like to get into the habit of pronouncing it like that but Goozy might be to far ingrained by now lol. Tomato/tomato, right?
I find that wearing underwear on my head is a very effective method of attracting attention Dusty
just make sure to use T-back for better aerodynamics
Ok, finally had a "dumb question" thrown at me today. I'm at a used car lot looking for a truck and one of the 30ish salesman who is literally 5 feet away from the bike says "What kind of bike is that?" Sure we've all gotten that one but really? It's a 94' Cali with a large MOTO GUZZI sticker right on the tank. I simply relied, Moto Guzzi and continued to get my gear on. So, as you probably guessed by now, that initial perceptive inquiry was not the dumb question that prompted this post. He precedes to say "Never heard of that bike". No surprise there, but then..........wait for it.........he stares at the bike then says "Is the tank really that big?" Yep, yes he did. I seriously had no idea what to say, so of course, with an ever so slight tone of sarcasm, I said "No, no it's not". Got and the bike left. No biggie, they didn't have any Moto Guzzi trucks there anyway. :)No Moto Guzzi Ercole's......shame😜😜Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
At a local "WW2 Days" show today, an older gent on a Honda VTX1300(?) asked Bill Sharp and I: "do things still fall off these Goozies like they did on the old ones or do you Loctite everything?" Huh? We both told him that vibration wasn't an issue and that neither of us Loctite anything. "Oh, I guess with nylon locknuts and better hardware you don't have to. When I was in Italy, those old ones would vibrate everything loose." I don't know what "old ones" he had experience with, but I doubt it, probably just another geezer trying to make himself feel superior in his choice of motorcycle.
