  2. Wow, what a shot. Looks like a painting. What a majestic place!
  3. Hello All, It is with sadness that I am selling my 2000 V11 Sport. It's a good bike. It is running well. I just don't ride it much these days and want to clear out some space, and not let it simply gather dust. It's just shy of 13K miles. It has a Roper sloppage pate installed. As well as an upgraded reg/rect unit. I've adjusted the acorn transmission nut and the transmission shifts without misses. Only issues are the Veglia tach indicates wildly and will need repair or replacement (was like this when I bought the bike), there's a leak from the transmission that drips on

    Does the garage have an engine hoist? After a ride that far, I’d need assistance getting off the bike. I was thinking more along the lines of..... ride 10 minutes from my house to the ferry, another 5 minutes when the ferry arrives at the island.... followed by intermittent rides to drag supplies back to the cabin. The 50 km speed limit on the island and a good steering damper would keep wobbles down to a minimum. anyway... thanks for the invite, it sounds like fun.

    They certainly look like they are done right. Can’t say there is a car there that appeals to me. I like the look of Steibs, but they would probably look a bit odd on a V11 Sport. Not exactly cheap either. Wonder what those earls type front ends cost? Maybe I should just look for an old Dnepr..... although a short ride on one gave me nightmares. Talk about agricultural!
  6. I got tired of replacing that stuff, and just set an unbaited mouse trap in front of the hole. The ones with big yellow pads.. I hate meeces.
  7. 2003 Moto Guzzi V11 Le Mans Rosso Corsa, 77 km ...pricey but maybe realistic nowadays
  8. 10ltrs... shiiite thats like those peanut harley tanks.. at least the vibration will make them stop before it runs out of gas.
  9. no not the switch but the sidestand not sitting on the switch properly all the time or actuating the switch. I don't have one on my bike, but i know on my griso there is an inch of play which can foul it from getting into its proper position.. anyway, was just checking and easy enough to check while riding, just kick the sidestand into the bike if its conking out.

  11. Hey guys, appreciate all the understanding and suggestions to mediate the critter problems. Have had 4 female cats as suggested and yes they were relentless varmint catchers. Laid their trophies at the door between the garage and house everyday. Unfortunately for them, the food chain here was their demise as coyotes readily eat cats and there are a lot of coyotes here. Will grab some mouse traps next trip in to town. Did find where the mice are coming in, one of roll up doors has about 2 inches of the rubber seal across the bottom chewed away.

  14. A pic I did a while back but couldn't figure how to shrink a pic. Scura in her glory.
  15. Hey, there are still four months. And untold determination! "Maybe new rings. Also mufflers. A little wiring . . ."
  16. Here's a few spine frames done right..
  17. Saw him a few times many years ago( 70's) with Bonnie Raitt and Linda Ronstadt...David Lindley..good shows!
  18. Sheesh, four months out and I am making no significant progress toward my "200.000 km" Centenary goal. Chipping away, though. I have a fresh rear tire in the wings, probably should get a front and go back into the shifter plate mechanism one more time. Maybe plugs, a valve adjustment, throttle body balance, you know: A Decent Tune-up/ guzzidiag . . . a compression test . . . check all those wheel bearings, the driveshaft U-joints, condition that battery . . . "Only forty-eight hundred" . . . "Maybe new rings. Also mufflers. A little wiring . . ."
  19. Go for it. I want to see it. Some say why, some say why not. Just make the hack as elegant as the bike already is.

    There is a place for your V11 at the South'n SpineRaid. We'll open a full garage space for your rig. And supply the ice . . .

    Again... I don’t really disagree.... well maybe a little, but logic is unlikely to deter me. After all, I’m the guy who put a Vincent engine in a Honda GL500 Interstate. In other words, I have no shame, so a V11 powered hack isn’t beyond the realm of possibility. Besides..... as you so aptly put it, think of all the beer you could haul.
