  1. Yup, "You dont miss your water...till your well runs dry..."
  2. Yes, old retired firefighter here...38 years of service...most with City of Santa Barbara FD. Going across Pine Mountain area, you can drop down 95 through the Bitter Creek Wildlife area...its an amazing road with so many twists and turns...it will really give you a work out. It goes all the way down to the 33/166 corridor. If you continue through Frazier Park you can go down Lockwood Valley Rd, where it ties into 33, near Ozena fire station.
  3. Take HWY 33 from Ojai, and cross over through the mountains near Ozena fire station....Pine Mountain intersection and then down to New Cuyama and out to the coast. I used to work at Rose Valley near the top of the mountains for the Forest Service on a Helicopter crew and that was a daily commute. Its a great road, often used to film car and motorcycle adverts.
  4. just seat of the pants...they seem to give a little more mid range torque and put out a slightly deeper sound than the stock ones with cross over. However, its probably all in my head (gotta justify the expense!). MG cycle is the USA distributor for Mistral and they were fast to ship. Great service.
  5. Took old Red out for a test ride with the new downpipes...central coast California, out on Hwy 166. Here at the Willow trailhead on the Los Padres N.F.
  6. Last weekend I added a Carbon weave alternator cover on my Rosso...along with changing out the damn crossover pipe with a set of Mistral down tubes. The cover I got was from Pomponi's Garage. Claudio did a really nice job on the part and was great communicating with me from Italy. This picture shows the cover with the old cross over pipe, which was a beeyatch to seal (even with a solid shim kit) and was always in the way. The new Mistrals sound great, were easy to fit. They run into a Stucchi x-over and a set of Mistral Titanium ovals.
  7. Super slow on this one, but will be shooting PayPal for 2 springs this afternoon. Thanks for making this happen! Andy

  9. Those very same bikes were for sale when I had my 1974 Norton Commando, back in 1976......its kind of a museum, but still a cool place!
  10. Good idea about using a poly cutting board to use the factory stand! Thanks docc!
  11. Yup, they work fine. I have used mine a ton and it's holding up. You can't beat the price/value. As everyone has said, plan on replacing the front wheel clamp with a ride on type. The Stock unit will hold up a Honda CT90, but not much else. The shipping box is huge and realllllly heavy, so factor in a large pickup to get it, and some help to load and unload the beast. I decided to unload mine at home by myself and ended up dropping the thing on my foot. Damn it hurt something awful for the longest time! Andy
  12. A buddy of mine has the EBC rotors on his bike, along with their sintered pads and raves about them. The replacement rotors are item VR614gld. I think the pads are item FA244HH. They come stock with a black center hub, but the gold is available as special order and looks good ala "brembo". They look good. The rotors are wave design, so they are different looking than the stock brembos, but are lighter. http://ebcbrakes.com/Assets/ecatalogues/AUG_2016_USA_Motorcycle_Catalogue/USA-MC-August.html#p=100 Andy
  13. https://www.amazon.com/MOTUL-7100-Synthetic-Ester-Motor/dp/B00IKCYD76/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1479643459&sr=8-4&keywords=motul+10-60 since the 15-50 is ridiculously expensive, and Guzzi recommends 10-60 any more, I go with it. Damnnnnn tooting! Next round I'm in with that. I get my Redline Heavy via Amazon, and I'll get my Motul there too. Thanks Chuck. Andy
  14. +1 for Motul. I've been using the full synthetic 15 - 50 300V Motul for about 6 years and the inside of my case is shinny clean....it's amazing oil but hella expensive at around $19.00 US for a liter. I did about 10 K break in miles with conventional oil and then switched over to full synthetic, first Mobil 1, then Motul. Andy
  15. Chuck, thanks so much! I'll finalize PayPal with you tomorrow AM. Andy
