Celebrated twenty years with the Sport today.   

Today I finished the new motor transplant and took it for a nice long spin! Fresh oil lines and a sweet new roper plate     

Got the modified V11 back up and running after a bunch of little changes and fixes. Gear drives from Joe Caruso fitted. Not without much angst.... (gears were beautiful but a stripped thread on t

Thanks, Chuck.

The seller had actually replaced the voltage regulator and the ignition switch(is that a correct spelling?) earlier this year, so I don’t know for sure. Must take a close look.

I like it.

i’d consider dying the leather a bit darker, but would just consider it.... don’t know that I would bother.

Im sure itll darken with wear.. When I got it I didn't think it was going to be still in new condition. 18 year old seat and it still has the suede fuzz. Impressive.

I have some spare suspenders from being the oldest old fart on a Guzzi at the Ohio rally if you need some.

This whole "suspender" thing has gotten a bad rap . . .

Yet, I'm pretty sure Bob Maynard may have been sorting "other" suspenders. The kind with preload and damping adjustments . . .

Thanks Chuck, I have two pairs of suspenders, but don’t wear them much anymore, I’ve switched to sweat pants and shorts with elastic waist bands. Reason being, besides completing my old fart look, a left turn car totaled my previous FJR and busted up my pelvis. Two plates, ten screws and a very good ortho surgeon left me with an aversion to belts. Found one brand of jeans (Duluth)that ride high enough that I can wear comfortably, but I’ll never look as good as the young lady above, even if I wear heels.

Anyway, I was dialing out a boatload of compression damping up front, the rest will wait for another day. It sure was good to ride the mg at a sporting pace through some twisty roads.

@kantmakm I dropped mine yesterday too for the second time in three years. My most dropped bike for sure. The best part is it fell on another Guzzi and my helmet.:angry: 

Shes ugly, overweight, not the smartest but she’s all mine... Ha!

edit: Truth be told there are few people that will feel sorry for a guy when one Italian motorcycle falls onto another Italian motorcycle...
