Was there to be a picture with that?   In case there was, I can't see it.

In case there wasn't, welcome anyhow!

My first Guzzi was a 1982 GL500 Interstate. Used as commuter from Santa Cruz Mountains to Silicon Valley.
Now 30 years later I'm on my second, a NOS 2017 Stelvio. I'm so happy they added FI and ABS. Retired to Southern California, at the foot of Palomar Mountain.

Welcome to the group.  Not to start you off on a critical note, but the GL500 Interstate was/is a Honda, not a Guzzi, right?  I've not ridden one, but I hear that the Stelvio is a fun bike.  You've probably already figured out that this forum is an outstanding, generally non-judgmental, source of information and entertainment.

Max
Born 1963
Bought a 1980 1000SP in 2003. Still have it.
Quickly restored it to Street-style.



Mostly I just drive smaller trips in Denmark. And a few hundred km in Germany Or Sweden.
In 2005 I went to GMG in Mandello del Lario and 2018 I took a tour through some alp-passes, including Passo Spluga, Passo Gavia and Passo Stelvio. Fantastic journey.



Latest project: I am rebuilding a LM3 engine with 2 plugs/head to mount hopefully this winter.
Keeping the roundfinned and rebuild that too.

Hi There! Kelly Here in Medicine Hat Alberta Canada. Worked in the motorcycle industry all my life finished off the last 8 years doing custom machine work and restorations. Still have a small fleet I'm a Beemergeek but recently bought a Spada, (as I age the fairing is more attractive) putting it back to stock (ish) : ) hence joining here got some questions but thats another post. Still doing some specialty work for the Airhead community as I don't see that as a growth market and didn't want to leave them in the lurch.

New owner here of a 2016 V7ii Racer.



My first Moto Guzzi although I have been lusting for a Racer ever since I saw my first one. That didn't stop me from owning both a Thruxton 900 and a RnineT Racer instead however... better late than never, I suppose. The Guzzi lives in my garage with three Suzukis... not sure if they'll have anything to talk about but I'm hopeful.  :thumb:

As for me, I'm a 49 year old aircraft mechanic currently living in Victoria BC Canada.

Mike here, 49, Ford MoCo in Buffalo NY
Had more bikes than I can actually remember but currently on my first MG - always wanted to wrench on one!
2002 (or 3 - the jury is still out - may end up pulling the cam covers to look and know for sure) California SS Aluminum.
 
In the garage with my last project that, after I completed it, realized I wasn't comfortable on it (92 ST1100) and an 86 Helix w/factory stereo that actually works (I keep it just to make other's crazy lol) I'm sure I'll be picking the database here clean for information! :)

Welcome, Emily! Glad to see some younger members like myself joining the board. Hopefully, you and your husband will be able to make some long distance trips to attend some of the Wild Guzzi events. You'll find that this board is an excellent resource for all things Guzzi, from general chat to technical advice, so don't be shy about posting.

Greetings Earthlings!
Thanks for the approval, as Groucho Marx almost said "I question any club that would accept someone like me as a member!"
I'm one of those "new Guzzi" types who is eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new 2018 California 1400 Touring. The dealer is toying with my emotions, telling me it will get here one day and then pulling the rug out from under me! (To be fair, it was just last Saturday and the truck didn't show and they had not received back all the paperwork). But as a grumpy grey-bearded old man I reserve the right to be cranky and complain (hey you kids, get off my lawn).
I'm moving up from a 2001 Suzuki Intruder 800 Volusa, it's a nice bike, I just feel like a monkey on a football when I ride it (always regretted not getting the 1400 version). I will confess to a small amount of trepidation in making a jump like this in mass and displacement, hopefully a bit of empty parking lot work, followed some quiet urban riding, and a trip to the casino (an hour away) should smooth out the rough edges and raise my comfort level. Who knows, maybe I'll hit a jackpot and be able to pay off the bike! Hey a guy can hope right?
I live in North Texas (Dallas area) and am always looking for more people to ride with!
