  1. You'd be surprised at how well they can work unless you don't wear gloves. While you may never need them in most places in SoCA you might find yourself in the mountains on a long ride and will find them useful.
  2. I assumed that the spine had an overflow and that's where the oil was coming from. Sounds like I actually need to look closer. Went out for a ride on Saturday with the Norton club, so I can't actually remember the last time I rode the Guzzi. Riding season is quickly coming to a close. It was 29F this morning.
  3. Yes, one on each side of the plate.
  4. Ok, some many more of a drip than a puke. After I installed the Roper Plate and refilled the engine with oil I think I have done it wrong. I check the oil level when the bike was upright on the bench. I suspect that you are suppose to check it when it's on the side stand. I assume the oil is coming from the breather? I've never dug into the breather system.
  5. I assume you've read the threads? Do you need one? Think of it as very cheap insurance. In typical riding you may never have the need but at the wrong time in the wrong place it might save your engine.
  6. Do you mean the 860GT because there's nothing ugly about a round case.
  7. The 750 Sport is not cheap. But depending on where you are you can get Commandos pretty inexpensive. How bad do you want one?
  8. Note that I’m not the author of the video, although as unpaid talent I don’t mind when the craft services consisted of Alabama bbq.
  9. First video of the series. Be sure to subscribe so you know when the next ones get released.
  10. and of course... Plus a couple more Guzzis

    Tank bag

    Considering they still make Triumphs I think it’ll be fine.

    Tank bag

    No need to call them. All the research was done for you.
  13. Are you going to get one just to hang on the wall?

    Tank bag

    I was looking at a bag that attaches to the fuel cap area. It might put the bag too far to the rear. A standard Triumph fuel cap mount will work. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/givi-st602-sport-t-tanklock-4l-tank-bag?gclsrc=aw.ds&&gclid=Cj0KCQjwrfvsBRD7ARIsAKuDvMMogUtrE_1d2352nnaDgspTTRKAaeChPJrq9GlBvoVE-Nc1yL0SWJcaAualEALw_wcB
  15. Shoot. Much easy getting it back out. Just ride it up the stairs!
  16. First V11 Sport sighting. Greenie no less. In the back of a truck. [emoji51] Spotted a Lemans outside Ace Corner. Picture later. So two. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  18. I know it’s a vintage event but every kind of bike shows up. I think I’ve only seen one V11 Sport ever. They were only asking $65k for this Vincent Black Shadow. Luckily I can only take out $200 at a time from the ATM. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Ok, that's it for the Guzzis Pre-unit Triumph engine only. Don't care if it's a wide or slimline Featherbed frame. I should stop there before I get carried away.
  20. The only difference is the fairing.
