I rode for 49 years without ever sitting on a Guzzi. Then last year, I test rode this leftover '08 Norge.



I bought it the same day.

Then, two days ago, I sat on my second ever Guzzi, a '99 California V11 EV.



It is now parked next to the Norge in my garage. The giant windscreen is on a shelf, however.

I gotta quit looking at these bikes, but I sure wish I'd tried them sooner.

Congratulations on a couple of fine looking Guzzis! Test rode the Norge when it first came out and loved it, very agile fun bike.

Yep. National Cycle Cruiseliner bags.

They were available as an accessory for a couple years.

The bags are available from National Cycle, but the mounts are unobtanium.

Well, shit. I'm digging the Black Eagle right now and considering choices for luggage. Don't know how much I like the Juniors, so I'm hoping to find others.
