Spotted at the Rosefarm Classics Guzzi Open House yesterday.


Anyone know this bike/owner?

Great open house - we test rode the crap out of a Norge. No Stelvios though.

It was a nice ride. Great seating position, wonderful handling. A bit of engine heat coming out from that fairing. It seemed small compared to the FJR. I'd rather have an FJR, truth be told...
Still a great bike though.

FleaBay is not a work friendly site for me but ... There was a Champagne and Blue edition... Doesn't do much for me but hey if we were all alike we'd all be riding Guzzis and driving MG's...

Seems to me I had seen a blue one but it could have been the same one, not many of them here...

Does the description state whether it is original paint or not...?

I'm pretty sure that isn't a stock color, but I like it.

I've only seen black, red, champaign/blue and baby shit brown.

Holy crap, i caint believe it!! Found myself a decent cheap Q complete with luggage and trunk. Am pickin it up next week after its been serviced, fluids changed and probly gettin knobbies too. Buyin the bike from amateur racer who blew the original engine, dropped a valve somehow at 58k miles. Now has more recent engine with less than 15k on the clock. Aint the prettiest bike in the world, covered with dings'n scratches. But for dualsport who cares?

Congratulations on the new Q. I was wondering when somebody was going to buy that bike. Glad you did it because I was starting to think about it for a spare.

Very nice bike! Is that luggage asymmetrical, with the H&B 40L Junior on the left and a 30L Junior on the right?

With conflicting schedules caint pick it up 'till next weekend but jeeze i sure hope so!! Hell yeah, major tidbit of Quota lore: "Asymetrical" (as ye say) places em both identical in windstream equal distance from frame. Right bag mount further out to accomodate single high-pipe exhaust. Would be imballanced ride if bags were same size with one further into windstream than other, specially noticable say 5th gear hauling ass 90+mph in between extensive offroad adventures like TransAmTrail that I've pretty much bought the bike for. Am lookin forward to doing the entire TAT including Colorado next Summer, bein semi-retired at early age it oughta be piece of cake.

Spares for what?? If anything goes south on yer Q then virtually any Moto Guzzi will provide bulk of mechanical parts you might need. For example, 15k miles engine in this bike comes from V-11 sport of different vintage delivering more ponies than stock'n standard Y2K Quota engine they tell me. MGNOC owned by noted Guzziologist. Am reconnoitring it's tricked out with ignition goodies, immaculate maintained, mechanically tight as a drum. Plus bein semi-pro racer's daily ride around town it's gotta been cranked and thats good!! As we all know, doggin and luggin the torque monster Guzzi V-Twin is probly the worst thing you can do.

Hahaha - taggin, baggin and snaggin this bike makes me happy as pig in shit.

For when friends fly in to town to go touring with me. Only have 2 good touring bikes right now and there are times when I could use a third. I had a spare Quota but a friend wanted to buy it. Now that he isn't riding it much, I'm tempted to have him sell it back.

Holy crap, the entire TAT on the Quota...? Wow... !
You are a better off roader than me. I have had my Quota on some fairly decent off road stuff but I just never thought of that as the tool for the TAT...

Have fun,
Please document that ride.... I'd love to see how A Q gets up through the hard stuff in Colorado...

Best,
Rob


Oh, congtats on the acquisition....
