And he is out riding my Ninja since his bike is "screwed"!!! I wonder what he'll say when he returns... he hasn't ridden my Ninja very much and it's been a while... :confused:
B-B-Qing is Fun-a-Qin'! :) (isn't that the WORST pun ever?)

Have to say your Ninja is quite a fun bike, nice on to ride on the highway with the full fairing and the bike sure does eat up the miles easily and in stop and go traffic is easy to go at 4-5mph without weaving. I can definitely see why you enjoy enjoy it! I had someone at a stop light ogling the bike over. I think I'm just a little too tall for it though as after 30 mins I can really feel it in my wrists and elbow from the riding position.

Wrider & Dr_Bar : I considered getting a patch, but (for me), I'd rather be safe than sorry, and as it's my first flat tire in 20 years I'm ok with replacing it... but ask me again if this one goes in 100 miles... :laughing:

Well, I got my new black donut today in the mail from Bike Bandit (http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-538038-1174801). I find it amazing that Bike Bandit ships a 13lb tire for free across the country and according to the tire's DOT code (date of manufacturer), it was just manufactured last month, so nice new fresh rubber to burn. :D

I'll attach a photo of it tomorrow. :photo:

So I got my new tire on the Guzzi and it feels sporty again. :D

I got the opportunity to see the old tire with a 1.5" screw in it. Seems I put on a little bit of distance on the tire as it went slowly flat. Luckily, the sidewalls are strong on a Bias-ply thus the rim never hit the ground at any time. Now, hopefully, I won't get screwed again by the Houston war-zone roads!

Speaking of Houston's War Zone Roads I think I'll grab a few photos of just how BAD the main roads are here next time I'm out. :D

4-6" ridges between lanes, 4" unfilled gaps, pot holes, horrible uneven pavement and even the occasional sink hole are common place.

I'll have to GoPro the ride down our highway... You literally get bumped out of your seat 3 or 4 times in 2 miles, and in one area, it's that bad plus curved, and the combination makes it so bad that they marked it with solid lines...

Sounds like a good idea for a new thread "Show how bad your roads are"

Hi Paul!

Welcome to the community! It's awesome to hear you are loving your Guzzi V7 Stone as much as I am. Make sure you get those aftermarket pipes for it, it really sounds like Italian opera and it drops about 12lbs in the bike's weight too.

The windshield is a DART brand one. I did a review on it here: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/reviews/ ... Review.htm

Looking forward to reading your Guzzi stories here on TMW!

My Guzzi's 1st Birthday!

:happybirthday:

Wow, amazing it's been 1 year alreay. So far it is at 2,700 miles (4,350 km's for my friends back in Canada). And not 1 mechanical issue at all! I did have a defective oil plug cap and I did run over a screw this summer and replaced the tire, but other than that, I have to say I'm VERY impressed with the Moto Guzzi. I did expect to have some mechanical issues as, let's face it, Moto Guzzi is a smaller manufacturer and with hand built bikes in smaller numbers you can have issues.

So 1 year and I am still in love with that engine and exhaust note. Power wise it has honestly surprised me as it can handle 75mph+ and keep going on the highway and around town the low down torque is really handy. The downsides are slow speed handling (under 10mph) is tricky mostly due to the engine weight being higher up and I'd still like to get more MPG than 48ish. But I'm happy it has a full sized gas tank (22l/5.3gal) that will take you over 200 miles on, a roomy and comfortable bench seat I can slide back on and absolutely beautiful (11/10) gauges/clocks that I enjoy reading/looking at.

Other things I've discovered is the dual personality of the bike. Below 4000rpm it will just be happy cruising along. Ride it at 4000-8000rpm and you have a V-Twin sporty bike that's torque will surprise you (has me and I catch myself holding on harder than I would on hard accelerations from 2nd-3rd gear).

Would I recommend it? Sure would! I think it would make a great 1st bike for an advanced rider/returning rider or a great 2nd+ bike for anyone who enjoy's torque sports and the sound of a V8.

Happy 1st Birthday Guzzi! You are definitely a treasure.

Just wanted to let you all know, Mike is truly crazy about his V7. This past Monday it was horrible weather - pouring rain and barely above 35°F / 2°C and yet he wanted to take his bike out to his Monday evening game night. :shock: The funny thing is, when I got home from work with the car he said "oh good you're home now, I can take the car." :lol:

@ 3000 miles, no issues and going strong.

I am surprised for an air-cooled engine that it doesn't require much of a warm up to get going in +3°C weather! Yes, it's been that cold here in Texas for the past few weeks... amazingly cold and I'm out riding still.

Drag race

So, in a impromptu* moment, I had a little stoplight GP drag race there with a Yamaha Raider 1900 vs my Moto Guzzi. I didn't expect to win or even stay within a reasonable difference, but my little Moto Guzzi shocked me (and the Raider rider) by staying right behind him till 3rd gear when the Raider ever so slightly started pulling away (at which time I decided to back off as I didn't want to go THAT fast). And yes, the Raider was WOT as well as I was (I even hit the rev limiter in 2nd, I'm sure I could have won..lol).

Amazing for a little bike with "adequate" horsepower as it was a 750cc vs 1900cc V-Twin drag!

Go Guzzi!
