  1. PM sent to FreyZI but no response. I am no longer interested. FreyZI, please update your commitment list when you return.
  2. In support of continuing superior V11 refinement, you can count me in on a CF booty lid to match my Carbon Fiber FBF cans on my '03 LM. Assume Frey ZI will handle disbursement and the builder will handle shipping? I expect all that usual collective organizing stuff will follow via comments. I'll be on the MotoGP road to Texas for about 2 weeks but available for collecting $ after 4/15/22. Must say another great effort by the group. I never know what's the next for "opportunity" for my wallet
  3. Thanks docc! and might I add, excellent place to eat on those chilly Spine Raid mornings!
  4. https://photos.app.goo.gl/EvXEtUDqjRRvMaAH6 Tellico Grains Bakery 2021. Brought back my childhood memories.
  5. I think I will will be pulling for crazy man Marc Marquez again this year. Hope he can keep it crash free. (Will be riding down to COTA with 4 friends in April for my 1st live MotoGP. Up until now, have only been to a Moto America race and some WERA races at VIR. Excited!)
  6. Since you are in Texas, make sure the jacket you get has zip-able front and back vents, as well as vented pit zips. Mine also has 3M piping front and back for nighttime reflectivity. I don't see my style shown but is similar to https://www.foxcreekleather.com/mens-grayson-motorcycle-jacket/.
  7. Do realize that a Fox Creek jackets is not your department store thickness leather, "soft and feely". It is real, hand graded thick leather. Like race leathers thickness/quality. Their jackets are heavy and wear very well. My jacket is probably 15 years old and would pass as almost new, despite 10 years of hard use. I'd call them and get someone on the phone who can talk "tailoring" you a new custom fitted jacket. The down stairs is usually just a store clerk. Tell them you want to speak to someone from "upstairs" who is actually involved in the fitting/cutting/sewing process.
  8. https://www.foxcreekleather.com/fcl-cafe-racer/ These guys make some of the best. I have one similar. They take your measurements and tailor make in upstairs of their shop in Independence, VA. American made leather, lifetime guarantee. A bit pricy but I found worth every penny. Not sure about armor, I don't have in mine. Generally I opt for my Dainese Air Frame textile jacket with either the D-Air bag vest or a track vest underneath instead of the leather. I'm too old to be sportin' leather for chicks!
  9. Sent message to Bob Marsh, no reply. Always wonder about folks that post stuff of the like and "have no idea on value". Hmmm....
  10. Bill, reacting to your post put me right there along with you. Cell mates!
  11. My kinda woman, esp. if she pillions too. I am a lone wolf on all rides, wife gave me up on riding years ago now. You are doing something right KINDOY2 for sure!!
  12. Don't have a MotoGP pass for watching this year, so did Marquez earn a track limits warning for the last left hand turn at 2:47? Looks like Pecco was dominating in smoothness and drive. Thanks for sharing!
  13. WTB red/black ThrottleMeister Bar Ends. Lost throttle side bar end off one V11 LeMans and would like to replace with same. Let me know what you might be willing to part with. Thanks. Tom in Virginia
  14. Just listed on FB "Moto Guzzi's For Sale" page: 7700 miles, $7000 2002 V11 Lemans Tenni. Pretty sweet ride and it gets alot of looks It was upgraded to titanium mufflers at original purchase. Has a few other extras, but it comes already upgraded from the factory. It is number 130 of 170 made world wide. 30 sold in the usa. It gets looks wherever I ride. Runs and drives great! Would trade for the right Stelvio. I gave Twin AH a heads up, think he had been looking for a pristine Tenni.
  15. Note of caution: Be careful of overspray with the PB Blaster, it can be quite aggressive.

    looks like you might have had "grabby clutch" syndrome here (or it wouldn't disengage). Been there myself on my '73 Eldo.
  18. What fork tubes are in use here?
  19. OK, for the really important EICMA stuff ... https://www.gpone.com/en/2021/11/24/moto-gallery/all-but-really-all-the-girls-of-eicma-2021.html?refresh_ce
  20. Have never gotten any good service from Harpers, on 3 occasions requested parts for 3 different items, Curtis said he had or would send upon receipt. never rec'd any further response. I use MG cycle as a primary source, then go to Stein Denise. You could also try Jim Hamlin Cycles in CN.
  21. Love mine, not a motorbike, but have ridden off road thru out Oregon, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, as well as Georgia, SC, Florida and Virginia. Have right at 2000 miles on it in 5 years of ownership. 3rd set of tires. capable, 20-40 mile range, hopped it up so it max's out at 27mph. One crash, in my driveway, lol. https://photos.app.goo.gl/bqrnMBM6XJr49PmCA https://photos.app.goo.gl/hftihtdRZKdy5BbB6 https://photos.app.goo.gl/9PDscktGEJGEdxEi6 https://photos.app.goo.gl/HkCddtPvDcbkhX4J6 https://photos.app.goo.gl/ottfXH2UZ9X2189h8 https://photos.app.goo.gl/LgjHd3atobJ4qSDK8 https://photos.app.goo.gl/sJxzqo1ZzhbzquMv5 https://photos.app.goo.gl/cBxvaNoiq6PwdZPk6
