Right now all you have to do is to stare at a blank sheet of white paper to get sense of the environs ;-)

But here's a picture from last fall. Lots of trees and a heavy sky. But a phone camera don't really make the view justice.

Hi Dusty, if you Google "Punta del Este" that is were I live you can see some of our land scapes, Uruguay is a small country but very beautiful, know for his beaches and his countryside, many years ago was know as the Swiss of America, and that's why here you can find a lot of classic motorcycles and cars, that were bring to the country in his majority by europeans, here you can find , ariels, triumphs, panther, matchless, norton, ajs, bsa, bmw, Royal enfield, horex, zumbean , guzzi etc etc, the negative of this is that now a days it's more difficult to find the good ones because the majority are being sell internationally, well sorry for any grammatical error but English is not my best language.

I have a half dozen other bikes and enjoy a bit of dirt with my son and other family and friends as well as some spirited road riding whenever possible. Excited to get the Cali back on the road!

Ciao Guzzisti!
New on the board.
I am Hans Barnar almost 72 years of age and living in The Netherlands.
Started my career on 2 wheels in 1965 on a Ducati 200 Elite and had several Ducati's till now.
The last one I bought is a 860GTS in 1976 still in my possession.
In 1987 I switched to the Guzzi and bought a 1976 Idroconvert. The 2nd Convert came on my way in 1978,
bought as a parts spender, but did a full restoration on this bike.
In 1998 I bought a California 1100i and having so many Convert parts I converted this bike 3 years ago into
a Caliconvert 1100i and riding this one with great pleasure.
Hope to contribute to the discussion board.
So far.

Hello all,

For some reason I thought I had joined the group a long time ago, but I realized I had not, so please accept my warmest hello. I look forward to talking with all the other Guzzi people out  there.

I have a 2015 V7 stone in a brilliant red. I have had the bike for two years but this last year's work slowed me down deeply, and so I the bike sits with 7K miles on it.

Here it is with the new exhaust I put on last year - https://streamable.com/h6nll. The bike has been a dream and an experience of it's own. I just got new Continental Road Attack 3s on it and boy did that change everything.

Thanks!

Hi Juan,

I came to Uruguay 3 years ago for a couple weeks. I like it there very much, sorry I didn't have a motorcycle to tour with. I especially liked Minas and Taquarembo.

Thank you for the compliments.

The accessories are a mix from Moto Guzzi, GuziTech and  AF1 racing.

Welcome to the forum, Tom.  I have family in SR and they came within houses of being burned out.  Hope you fared well during the fires.
Do you currently have a Guzzi or just have Italian fever?

Greetings from Petaluma, California!  I caught the Guzzi bug last year around this time and bought a 2016 V7ii that I cannot stop riding, modding, and reading about.  I've logged about 5K miles in the first year of ownership.  Mods include: GT hybrid fork kit, Racetech G3-S shocks, GT Stainless Valve Cover bolts, Dart Marlin screen, Tuono mirrors, GT 2:1 exhaust (asked Todd to weld in a baffle because it was a little too loud for me), remap, and a BMC filter... and one of those super-nifty Motodemic LED lights (not the adaptive one) on the way.  And some Agostini crash bars that I haven't gotten around to installing. Like I said, I can't stop! 

I'm married with a nearly-four-year old daughter, and work in education.  Enjoy hiking, skiing (alpine and backcountry), cycling and tinkering with and riding my V7 and FJ-09.

Cheers!  I look forward to lurking, learning, and to the extent I can, contributing.

Hi everybody!
Nick (surprisingly, given user name) from Berkshire, UK. Now retired, 5 grand children, 1 Breva 750, and an SV650s, both 2004. Found this forum whilst searching "startus interruptus", now just got to follow the advice found in the threads, what a great resource! Hope that I can contribute in some way.

Love my Guzzi!

New guy, first post. SW Arkansas where the only curves are on the river roads. But close enough to the Ouachitas and Ozarks to get there in a hurry.  New owner of a �16 Stelvio and couldn�t be happier about it. One more airhead to finish then my T3 project goes on the lift. I�ll be mostly reading and learning until then but will surely post up for help once I get into it. In the meantime, just glad to be onboard.
Cheers!
