  1. Thank you very much for the replies. How does the seat compare with the norge ? I sat on a friend's norge years ago and while it is the same height on paper as the 1100 sport it was far more manageable. Norges are not sought after here and are similar price to a Breva 1100, but I have heard over and over that the 1200 engine is more trouble than the earlier bikes. I like the look of the norge and of course it comes with a stand, but I do prefer naked bikes. I would think a V11 is more exciting to ride... That there was a stand is good news. If I can locate one somewhere I can copy it, and maybe improve the engineering. I love making people's eyes get big when I hoist my round barrel bikes onto their stands without using my hands at all. That center stand was superbly engineered, making up for the hopeless joke that is the side stand Gotta love guzzi, 2 steps forward...
  2. Hi all, I have just registered. I've been reading as much as I could find on the forum and have searched on these questions but I've never been very good at internet searches. The section on model variants was terribly helpful although it is a pity some photos wouldn't load. I have a couple of rattly old guzzis and have been considering buying a later bike. I had an 1100 sport (96, carb) but had to let it go because it was just too tall. I remember when the V11 green/red came out and thought at the time they might fit me a tad better than the sport. I fitted an aftermarket center stand to the sport because really guzzis side stands don't even qualify as decoration.. So I was wondering if anyone had either made an aftermarket stand for the V11 or tried to fit a norge or similar guzzi unit ? Also I recall there was a lower seat for the norge and possibly breva. I was wondering if anyone had explored the possibilities for the V11 ? I've been looking at local ads but would be happy to learn of bikes for sale in Australia and particularly near me here in brisbane. Thank you for reading.
