Wondering, is there a V7 forum out there somewhere? Been looking, but can't seem to find a good, active one. I am very interested in the Guzzi, just want to read more on it.

Thanks.

Had a brief test ride yesterday. Found the bike to be quite "eager" and ready to pull away when you give it some gas. I also found it a little small and I seemed to be quite hunched over the tank. I think a set of higher bars would improve this.

I did find gear selection to be a little interesting, especially with no "stop" at the bottom and top of the gear range.

I think another ride when it isnt freezing is warranted. Reminds me of a puppy that wants to go and play. :)

Just wanted to get this thread out of the dustbin.

Put the rear cowling / number plate back on now that I have the tank bag.

First bike

Im thinking of a V7 for my 21 year old son. He is taking his safety class today. We have been looking at bikes for a couple weeks now. Its been a great father son bonding thing.
Any thoughts on the V7 as a first bike, I do wish it had ABS.

Its all up to you, of course, but I'd recommend something you wouldn't feel bad about dropping a few times. Lightweight dirt bikes are great as a first bike and you can't get in a lot of trouble on one. Buy a used one and save the V7 for Christmas (or some other later date).
