  1. G'day and a Merry Christmas to all V11 addicts out there!! Hope you all have a great festive season. Stay safe and enjoy these bloody great bikes as much as possible. I know my new year resolution is to get out on it just for the fun of it more next year instead of the commute ! Cheers Guzzler
  2. Ha ha Bavarian Money Waster It is said that fools and their money are easily parted ! Cheers Guzzler
  3. Viva La Verde Legnano !!! Cheers Guzzler
  4. Ha ha I like that , Shiraz the official wine of the Greenies!! Jeez mate even when I used to drink beer I NEVER went anywhere near Fosters !! Cheers and I'll raise a glass to you all @ wine o clock ( 4pm -it's the weekend eh !) Guzzler
  5. GREEN GREEN GREEN !! I may be a little biased though. After 10 years with my greenie I can still grab a glass of shiraz and stare at her! And I always give her a last look before heading in after a ride! Cheers Guzzler Ps Welcome mate, whatever colour you choose you have a very special bike now, ENJOY.
  6. Wish I could post a pic here, but reckon I'll have to wait till the kids visit next and show me how! Anyways I have 78228 kilometres on the Greenie as of now. Love the ole tart and couldn't voluntarily part with her. This forum is one hell of an asset in keeping these buggers with their little foibles on the road !! Cheers Guzzler
  7. Bloody hell, I'm surprised at just how good the Greenie looks with the Le Mans fairing! It would probably also put a wee bit of weight over the front too, which may not be a bad thing either. I'm still kinda smitten with her with the wee Stucchi model though! Cheers Guzzler

    Riding gear

    I wear Mars Leathers Le mans jacket and separate pants. These are old school leathers made locally in Melbourne and still in the old motorcycling mecca of Elizabeth st. Been there for a very long time too. Rukka gloves and Daytona Roadstar gtx boots with a Shoei helmet. Usually ride with a Kreiga backpack which contains my cheapo wet weather top and bottom. Thats my set up. Cheers Guzzler
  9. G'day mate. That might look interesting when you get it on and painted. Be good to see a photo when you're done? Cheers Guzzler

  11. These two Vinnies seem to be Gippsland locals ( an area of eastern Victoria here in Oz.) I bumped into them the other year when they were heading to the All Brit rally. ( I assume as we stopped at Drouin and they kept heading West ) I'll never forget it, ha ha . I was coming home to Drouin from a romp up in the Victorian high country with a couple of mates. The girls followed behind us in a car and we all met up at the end of the day.(s ) Anyways I digress. We were on our way home approaching Traralgon when the unseasonally warm weather for the time o year decided to call enough! It RAINED BIBLICALLY and by the time we ( me on the V11 and wife behind in car ) were sat at a set of traffic lights in the town I was drenched and no point in putting wets on. Then there was an almighty explosion to my left and then a second just after. Then the sound of two duelling GATLIN guns!! WTF? I looked over and these two jokers had just filled up at the servo and fired up and were inching out to join me at the lights. What a bloody sight and sound. I had the pleasure of riding through Traralgon and a few kays thereafter with them. The Norvin was one up but the other had his girlfriend/wife clinging on behind him trying to stay dry ( no way ). The three of us riding along ( they too were soaked through ) must have been a sight. Even my wife who isn't into bikes tells me that she thought it was something special. It certainly was from my perspective, riding with two Vincents and the unspoken camaraderie of 3 x very special bikes being ridden in very adverse conditions! It's just one of those VERY SPECIAL motorcycle moments that we get to experience in our riding lives! Ha ha I'll never forget it. Cheers Guzzler.
  12. I'd even take the pillion seat cover off for her! But she'd have to wear red shoes though. All for the colour coordinated look of course. Cheers Guzzler
  13. G'day. As I've just treated mine to a new set of shoes ( Pirelli Angel GT ) I kinda felt compelled to add to this thread. Holy shit !!! I'm seriously impressed by these tyres. I've run Michelin Pilot roads 2, 3 and 4 and was really looking forward to the new 5. However the importer here in Oz stuffed up and I had to try something else. So and this is not just new tyres compared to knackered old ones. The Angels are still quick on turn in ( slightly slower which I like ) but a hell of a lot more stable FEELING. Speaking of FEELING there's tons more of it and the bike just plain handles so much better because of it.Much more confidence in her handling. Don't get me wrong she was good before but just soooooo much better now! Another thing and this is odd.They must be more compliant as well? I have a buggered neck.Its bolted back together. Ha ha Seriously C2,3,4 and 5 have been fused, rods screws plate etc . So since I got back into riding again about 10 years ago I've always been susceptible to wind, helmet buffeting, bumpy or crap roads. So much that after a ride most times the first thing I reach for is a Panadol ( pain-killer ). Ha ha now I've only had 3 x rides and about 800 k's on these but I haven't had to reach for the Panadols yet! And two of these rides were on notorious 2 x Panadol roads!! Anyways I reckon I'll be sticking ( pardon the pun ) with the Pirellis from now on. I've yet to ride in the rain yet and get the feeling that the Michelins are probably a little better in the wet but the Pirellis are a lot better in the dry ! I can give up a little wet performance for the Huge gains in the dry. Well this was supposed to be a short plug but I've gotten to waffling a bit! Anyways folk's I'm chuffed with the Pirelli's. Cheers Guzzler.
  14. Just my tuppence worth. I also had that bloody annoying stumble! Mine was between 3 and 4 k and yep on a whiff o throttle. It used to piss me off rolling through a town at 60k's in third ( 3 thou ). The thing that cured it was when I had the useless standard tensioner replaced with the Stucchi unit. I was with the mechanic when it was done and can verify that it's CRAP!! That was about 30 thousand k's or probably more ago and no stumbles. We found the issue because my timing gasket failed and noticed how little tension the original had on the chain! Cheers Guzzler
  15. Yeah mate Great fun to ride and great to grab a glass o your favourite tipple and just admire her after the ride as she cools down! Cheers Guzzler
