    Motorcycles and Little League Baseball. My children (15 and 18 yr., both of whom are avid soccer players and pianists). My wife is a 5th grade teacher and I have an older daughter in Seattle (WA). I am a police sergeant (Stanislaus County Sheriff's Office) assigned to Patterson which is on I-5 in the Central Valley area of California. Update...retired with 30 years on job. Now, I'm just "a lazy bastard, living in a (bathing) suit"...sincere apologies to L. Cohen. Furtherly, I have sunk so low as to be Guzzi-less (at lease for the time being)

  1. Hello all, can anyone recommend a shop in the Los Angeles area, specifically West L.A./Santa Monica/Malibu areas? FWIW Im a longtime member here but since Ive been without a MG for several years Ive recently been inactive, but still lurking about! Now Ive the opportunity to pick up a 04 Cafe Sport, but Im reluctant since Im unfamiliar with the service network here in Los Angeles. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated! TIA, Joe

  3. Thanks all for welcoming words. Its always a pleasure to roam/lurk on this site! I do the same with other moto sites, but almost none have the friendly attitude and camaraderie displayed here! sigh...How I miss my Guzzi days.... Please! enough babbling docc, you still owe me that beer! Scud, one way or another lets meet up!! Jaap, I wish I were truly back. Im w/o a motorcycle now (just sold my Tiger 800 XRx). Maybe the Gods will be kind enough to lead me to that 'just-right' 04 V11 I'm always searching for.
  4. Hello all. Longtime member here, but currently Guzzi-less. Ive just returned from a three week trip to Italy. Covered Rome, Pienza, Sienna, Florence, Lucca, Vernazza. Cinque Terre and Venice. Cant say how much I enjoyed myself and how wonderful the Italians we met were. Suffice it to say Im planning to return sometime soon! Anyway, the point of my post is this: I had expected to see Guzzis everywhere I turned my head, but only saw a couple of Stelvios, 4 or 5 V11 Cruisers, two dozen V7s, but .... ZERO V11 Sports/LeMans. How can this be? Here in the Santa Monica/Malibu area of California I could expect to see at least one V11 Sport/LeMans in three weeks! Worse yet, I couldn't find any of you cheap bastards to buy me a beer! Ah well...if anyone is ever in my area, look me up. Ill buy the first round!
  5. Docc...don't I wish! I come by here often to ogle these beautiful V11s and i often regret ever selling either of mine. ; > ( BTW I did post in the fuel tank thread. Currently toying with the idea of trading off my 15 Triumph Tiger XRX to rejoin the flock!
  6. I have a 2004 Rosso Corsa gas tank if anyone in the Los Angeles, SF Bay Area or Sacramento area would like to borrow it for fabrication of an aluminum tank.... Note: this tank has the hole in the bottom for the fuel pump. I'd prefer not to ship the huge thing.... but I travel fairly frequently to above areas. Sadly, this is all that remains of my once powerful Guzzi empire ; > (

  8. Nice looking V11 guzzist...what is the significance of the license number "FFF77"?
  9. Plexiform... If you picked up that beauty for the price of a 2002 Scura, you've struck a great deal! Enjoy!
  10. Sigh...... I guessed I asked for all this grief : > [
  11. I've been torturing myself lately by going into Guzzi shops, looking for a V11 Sport...they're increasingly harder to find. Anyway, short of a bike purchase I bought a bit of Guzzi swag, a nice 100% wool Guzzi pull over. The laundry tag needs a bit of deciphering though. I got the first symbol... "Hand wash", but any ideas as to what the others mean? BTW... If there is a prize for the LEAST Guzzi related post, I think I've earned it!
  12. Maybe you can sell it to me. I could register it in California, and you could visit occasionally...
  13. Al....good luck on making the best decision for your family. Motorcycles come and go.... OTOH... Does that make me one of "the old Timers" I kinda resent that and will insist that you buy me a hamburger and fries the next time you visit Alice's. Awe, never mind.... I'll treat! Joe
  14. I'm looking for a V11 Sport. Early model (2000 - 2002) preferred, but others will be considered. Please PM me....
