This picture was taken in the summer 2003 near the summit of Rattlesnake Pass near Enterprise, Oregon [god what a great road]. The bike has a color matched Givi A755 mini fairing which does a much better job of keeping the wind off the chest than the factory option Stucci sourced one. This picture also shows the factory option "Techno" semi hard panniers. Not a match for usability and volume compared to hard bags, but very inexpensive, worth the money, work well considering they are lockable soft bags, and seem to match the size of a V11, which is surprisingly a slightly smaller bike than one might be used to.
Love is a strong word. I've grown to admire Moto Guzzis, mainly for that lovely lump of an engine. It really is alive.
Ciao, Steve G.

Some of this might be a little "jo momma" and probably NSF, but I think the readers of this thread will appreciate it.

Stock hub, Sun, 17". I bought a Tonti framed racer and stole a bunch of parts off it, including a this wheel and a wider rear wheel to match (with later wider/longer swingarm). I went back to the rear narrower wheel, shorter swingarm, as It is more nimble.

I originally purchased the bike (1976 T-3) as a tourer with Krausers, footboards & a Vetter. I've made a few changes.....and probably will always be changing something. It truly needs a little better brakes to match the hot (for a guzzi) motor. But it mostly needs a more skilled rider.......that actually rides it...:)

thanks

Hi all
I have never before been to this part of this site.
As I mainly only read the Thumper section.
I seen the word Guzzi as I scrolled down the front page and had a peck,
to see that there are Guzzi people here.


So here is My 81 MKIII (owned it 9-10 years) and 87 MKIVSE (owned it 11-12 years).
I use to have another 81 MKIII that I rode on the street and raced.


Here is my better half, having her first ride on the MKIII.
I had to modify it a bit, as she is only 5'1/4".
She finds it like riding a super tanker compeared to her XT250.
But she is a true Guzziist and loves riding it.

Rik

Dang I miss my Scura now. These are great bikes posted here. Nothing is more emotional than a goose.
