Hello,

I just found your forum looking at Guzzi pictures in a Google image search.

I reside in the mid-atlantic region of the US.     Please don't hold my country's current president against me (I didn't vote for him or the other major party's candidate).    That's the last I'll say anything political!

Anyway, my current Guzzi flock is as follows:
2017 V7 III Special
2013 V7 Racer w/ Record fairing
1977 Le Mans Mk1
1974 Eldorado w/ dual disc (original disc bike, I added the second disc).

Previous Guzzi:
2013 V7 Special
2006 Breva 1100
2009 V7 Classic

I am also a Ducati enthusiast.   My Ducatis are as follows:
2013 Monster 796
2004 749, track bike
1966 Monza 250

I've got a little case of MMS (Multiple Motorcycle Syndrome).
BMW's:
2016 R1200RS
1980 R100S
1976 R90S
1973 R75/5

Also:
2000 Kawasaki W650
1976 Honda CB400F
1968 Honda CL175
1967 Honda CB77 (305 Superhawk)
2007 Vespa GTS250ie

And... a bunch of project bikes.

I do almost all the maintenance and repairs on my bikes, though, I did pay a highly-skilled friend to rebuild the Eldorado's engine.

Cheers!
Jay Snyder

We definitely won't hold anything against you when it comes to politics. On this side of the pond the general opinion was "OK, now can the real candidates step forward".LOL

Welcome. An impressive collection there.

Brian.

That is quite a tasty collection. Welcome. We are certainly not in  any position to lecture anyone about politics or politicians over here at the moment!

In relation to Mr Fart I think you are all being hard on a well meaning young man.
