  1. Itโ€™s difficult to measure desirability when the market is limited for these bikes in comparison to the more mainstream stuff. We are a dedicated bunch of course and we always give a V11 a real second look something like a pretty girl that catches our eye !!! Over here in euro land I would say around 5k but it must surely depend on whoโ€™s been hanging out for a smart and low miler V11 and then it becomes more desirable. Iโ€™m recently back from a trip to Vietnam where the offer price is %50 of the asking price to start with. But even with that itโ€™s way off the mark. I remember buying a bike for Margaret( the boss)in Stafford a few years ago where the asking was bonkers. The dealer got really insulted when I offered %50, I thought he was going to go ballistic !!! But I did get the bike ! Ciao Ciao K ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  2. Just saw this listing on EBay Uk for a 94 Scura. Listing number/:: 174124724816 Strikes me as being a bit over the top, what do you guys think? Ciao Ciao K ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž.
  3. When the Rosso left the garage Iโ€™m convinced a depression came over my other bikes๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž. It got replaced with a very smart and low mile Falco that had to muscle itโ€™s way into the garage, the new kid on the block ! Like a lot of us I think I may have overspent a LITTLE on putting my stamp on it !! Very diff bike to the V11 no question but still Italian and immense fun. Fast for sure and probably too much of a hooligan bike for me now so itโ€™s been moved to the side to make way for the prodigal son returned, my Nero. I keep walking around it on my regular visits in my garage, admiring it as we do and reminiscing about how much fun it actually was and pangs of guilt as I wonder what to do with it๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž. This could take a long long time as Margaret reminds me โ€œWhat will you do with the Falcoโ€? Coal Ciao ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž K
  4. Warranty !! Now thereโ€™s a novel idea for sure, long long time ago since I had one of those and it was probably on a toaster ! Iโ€™m totally convinced weโ€™re only in this for the PAIN as it feels that way an awful lot of the time but hey as we say here โ€œitโ€™s great crackโ€ Ciao Ciao K ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  5. Hey Gino glad to hear you kept the v11 !! Best fun bike to ride by a long mile. Remember that very wet ride up into the highlands !!!! A buddy of mine twisted my arm into selling him my Rosso Mandello and With a rush of blood to the head it was gone !!! Regretted it there and then so DONT DO It !!!! Anyway took me a while to get a nice one but back on the road again a while back. Planning a trip to Switzerland/Italy late spring this year and also heading over your way later in the year. Ciao Ciao K ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  6. I have the mounting rack but I need a set of the soft Tekno Panniers. What have you got ????
  7. Sounds like fun for sure. Have you gone far into re-tuning ? Pipes, motor, suspension ? ??? My Nero came with the guzzi Titanium exhaust set up. Sweet sounding and tucks in very tight at the rear.
  8. Hi all New to the forum. Riding Guzziโ€™s a long time now. Have put serious miles on the Rosso Mandello here in Ireland, Scotland and around Europe many times. Picked up this low mileage Nero Corsa 18 months ago and really enjoying this new lady !!! Planning a few trips for 2020 already. Nerorider
