    You guys have some awesome bikes.
    Thanks for sharing those pics.



    My 1st:
    1992 Ducati 900SS 1/2 fairing
    My favorite looking bike of all time.
    Sold it cos I got into racing.

    THIS is the one I shouldn't have let get away. :cry

    Followed up with a '94 M900.
    Fun bike I guess. Sold it before I started dumping farkle bucks into it.

    Next came this California EV-T
    Bought it on a whim. Had some fun with it.
    I just wasn't ready to be a Guzzisto (yet).

    Back on a Duc now. 2012 1199 base.
    She's at the dealer now getting some trick bits added.
    Once it's home, I'll get to snapping some real photos.

    It now reads 99mi. We had a gorgeous day last week, and I left my wife and new baby girl at the hospital to sneak out for a quick ride. The only thing my wife said was "Well...how was it?" I think she's a keeper :cool:

    Love this bike!

    WOW!

    I notice the temp tags. I had not seen this new V7.

    Made this former LeMans owner forget all about the MGS for a sec.

    I REALLY wanted one of these when they first hit the market, but family circumstances at the time required the available funds to go elsewhere. When I was in the market for a new ride in 2010, I decided to seek one out. I found this one belonging to an absolutely meticulous owner (I think he spent more time working on it than riding it) with under 5000 miles on the clock.

    Almost better than getting a new one as the previous owner had already sorted out the "quirks" that seemed to come with all Guzzis around the time it was produced during ownership by Aprilia.
