Took it home yesterday. Running out of room at the shop; &, I really need to start working on the Benelli to make it road worthy.

Back on subject, a shot of the V7C with the H&B Standard Alloy Panniers. I needed the panniers for the HP2, so they weren't on the V7C for long. I think the Junior bags look better anyway.

Wicked Guzzi n Texas wildflowers

Here is my 2010 in the wildflowers near Austin TX, Spring 2010.

I am new to this so I'm not sure if the picture attached.

Has anyone seen/bought one of the burnt orange/red ones.
I saw a picture of one, but haven't seen one in person yet. But it's looking more and more like the next addition to the fleet.

Yep - Very much on the red side of orange, good looking bike. I like the white the best myself (or the racer - local dealer has one of those too) but it's a nice color, looks VERY deep (if that makes sense).

Yes I've seen one. I should have taken a pic... :(
It's absolutely gorgeous in that color. It has the 90th anniversary badge stamped on top of the tank.
If you remember the earlier red color of the Aprilia Caponord, that's what it is.

I think I must have one.
I found a picture and have put up as my desktop background. It will stay there until there is a real one in the garage.

I would love to see one of these with 17" black Woody's Wheels on modern radial tires.
Too bad there isn't an easy way to upgrade to double front discs as well.....You know, true retro styling but a little more modern chassis.

You bought it from our great Seattle dealer and are having it shipped to Oklahoma City? Wow. I am impressed. I didn't know Moto International was shipping bikes to other states.

I saw one at my (new) local dealer last week. I'm taking the camera to work tomorrow just so I can go back on my lunch break.
