Long time lurker now new member. I ride a V7 Café Classic. I've made quite a few mainly cosmetic mods to it. I know the V7 isn't a lot of people's favourite bike but it's perfect for me for quick jaunts out of the city and even touring.

Cheers,
Bob

I'm a little sad I let my '10 Café Classic go, but the V7III Carbon is a much more modern ride.

BTW:  I found a tin sign on Amazon, delivered from China that would look great hung behind your bike in the garage.

I've never ridden a single throttle body but I've heard that they're a bit quicker. I don't think I could part with mine anyway. I'm not very good at breaking up. Besides, with all the mods, I've got it pretty much exactly how I want it.

Hi, I’m Dirk! Illustrator, roller derby referee, roommate of two cats, Petro and Ambassador Doombringer. Moved to Coastal New Hampshire from York, PA April of 2016.

Got into motorcycles in 2011. Previously owned a ‘77 Kawasaki KZ400, Honda CX500, Suzuki TU250X. Prefer air-cooled naked standards over anything else - I dig the versatility and simplicity.

Own a V7 II Stone that I bought January 2017. 16k miles on it so far. Try to ride throughout the year when ice and snow aren’t covering the road! Been to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Montreal, Quebec, and across Pennsylvania on the bike.

Did a 3-week moto trip through Andalusia, Spain in 2017, (on a BMW F650 GS); doing another 3-week trip through Turkey at the end of this summer.

My first Guzzi was a used v65 maybe 15 years ago, than went through a several adventure bikes.
Just moved 1000 miles south of PA to the land of straight roads and bought another cruiser.

Hey there,

Axel from Brussels, Belgium here. I'm 38 and already owned 6 motorycles including 4 Guzzi's.

I learned to ride on a V65 SP from 1986 which my dad gave me. I knew that motorcycle since my 6 years old and was amazed to own it! Then I moved to a Breva 750, before owning a Yamaha Bulldog BT1100. A few years later I bought a Griso 8v. I had to sell it for various reasons but I definitely miss it. A few years ago I bought a Triumph Rocket X because there was nothing in the Guzzi clan that fitted my needs at the time. A now I'm finally back to my beloved brand, with a MGX-21 :)
