  1. I'm in. PayPal complete with shipping address in the notes section. Much appreciated!
  2. Yessir! Iā€™m in and thanks for all your hard work.
  3. Guess, I should have assumed it to have been here first. Nice looking bike!
  4. Well, this popped up recently on ADVRider https://advrider.com/f/threads/2001-moto-guzzi-v11-sport-rosso-mandello-excellent-condition-tons-of-parts-oakland-ca.1400058/
  5. Love the tail tidy and brake light, but unless my eyes deceive me someone has bedazzled that tank! I had hoped the Bedazzler epidemic was officially contained in the US, but apparently security in the 80's was a bit lax ..........
  6. Purloined's prose is worthy of greater readership than this modest forum offers, for sure. I'll follow this thread to the end just to read each unfolding chapter and bone up on my working vocabulary. I have SAFECO and while I could arguably return to USAA and get a slightly better deal, I exercise the benefit of the personal relationship I have with my broker. Said broker happens to be a fraternity brother with a history of moral terpitude who since recovered, repented, married, has built a very succesful business by increasing my rates and those of my fraternity brothers, at a metronomic pace. As we are quite close and share many things, among them a history of moral terpitude, he goes to the mat for me with SAFECO whenever needed. Thankfully, those efforts have never been required insofar as bikes are concerned, but his relationship with SAFECO and his book of business gives him some clout when he chooses to exercise it. I hope this works out in your favor and someone sees their way to take good care of you as a customer.
  7. Essentially new. I guess I had an Imelda Marcos moment years ago and got these along with a work boot purchase. Size 12 fits more like a 12.5 (I wear 47 Sidi's and 13 street shoes w/ a narrow foot). Buttery soft oiled leather only worn twice in warm, dry weather. These are pretty badass and if I had an old R20 or something vintage I'd hold onto them for rare occasions. You can still find these in sizes 6-7 tiny, but no longer available in manly sizes.
  8. Any feedback on how this performs? $50 vs $350 for a JW Speaker brand is compelling, but the price delta is so great that it would scare me off from a quality perspective.
  9. Up on ADVRider: https://advrider.com/f/threads/2000-moto-guzzi-v1100-sport.1385390/
  10. That woulda been fruity. We barely know each other. šŸ˜‚
  11. What? Like "Uggh! Why did you post that?" Or, "Uggh! That's the ugliest thing I've ever seen and I wouldn't dig a plugged nickel out of the sofa cushions for it!"
  12. Hey, thanks for posting those pics and why didn't we line them all up together? Dude at a gas station on the way home said, "Das a nice Motor Geezy, right der." Enjoyed the walkabout and chance to meet a few new faces. Have to bring my truck next year as there were a couple of Honda CL's that may not have survived the day had I not been riding. Didn't know that there was a German made Triumph, but indeed one was there in little 'ol Corvallis. Ran over on campus to have coffee with my daughter before heading home in the rain. A man can stretch his legs out around Kings Valley, for sure. My personal favorite -
  13. This one popped up recently: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/mcy/d/san-francisco-2002-moto-guzzi-v11-sport/6892767726.html #600 of 700? What's the general consensus on the numerical liberties taken by the Moto Guzzi marketing team back in the day?
  14. I have to go look and see where the bolts for the gas cap are. I might be able to get away with three. Thanks for the link, too.
  15. Yes, the tank top / cover. Scud is correct in that anything can be McGyvered. My aluminum spacers were just too thin, so I had to stack them. I'll try again at some point. Plus, the Amazon sourced part from China is a little janky.
