How Do from San Antonio

Greetings all! This looks like a great forum. I've been riding since 1970 (BSA 441 Victor, Norton 750 Commando, Norton P11, Ducati 750GT). Currently riding a 2001 Moto Guzzi V11 Sport. Moved here from Oakland CA and been living in San Antonio since Oct 96. Love these Hill Country roads. Don't see too many other Guzzi riders around. See you on down the road!

Don't know why the picture doesn't show:

I have to admit that aesthetically speaking, Guzzi's have never been near the top of my list. But man your bike looks awesome! The colors are great. I love the seat. Is that a custom seat? One of my riding buds has the Kermit green and red version of this bike. He came off a Triumph Sprint ST prior to this. He loves it. If you watch the banner images at the top of the pages, you might catch it. The scene is three bikes parked on a bridge with a beautiful lake behind them. It is his Guzzi, my VFR and a Sprint ST. That was a great rally in North Carolina.

Welcome to the board. I can't wait to see your bike up close and in person :wink:

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Oh, MAN, that bike is gorgeous (I'm a sucker for Eye-talian Reds apparently)

Please, describe YOUR perception of the Guzzi sound... :wink:

Guzzi sounds etc.

Thanks for the kind words re: my Guzzi. The suede saddle did not come stock on my bike but was offered on another model called the LeMans Tenni (named after the famous Guzzi racer Omobono Tenni).

For great bike sounds, check out:
The sound of the 1957 Guzzi V8 GP racer always makes the hair on my neck stand on end.

I replaced the stock pipes and airbox on my bike with aftermarket units (Mistral pipes, Stucchi crossover, individual K&N air filters and a Power Commander III). The bike now sounds nice and gutteral, like one quarter of a small block Chevy (especially nice on throttle overrun).
