I'm probably in the wrong place to post this..if so..apologies..I'll figure this out soon..

Some of you probably know my bikes better than I do..at this point as both have been listed in this forum before, My "Greenie" was formerly "Scuds Greenie", and My Rosso Mandello is #49 formerly owned by Surj. Ive been riding Italian bikes over 50 years..Mostly Aprilia and Ducati..I havent owned a Moto Guzzi for 3-4 decades when I had a MK1....I Re inspired my self on MG while Riding in Italy 2 years ago and spending some time At Lake Como and in Mandello del Lario..And now I am seriously hooked on the V-11 I love these bikes and just cant get enough riding in, ..that is until this Covid 19 came along. Anyway I'm very proud to own these two bikes  and be a part of this addiction ..I havnt put many miles on the RM..but have racked up a few several hundred mile  rides on Greenie and she runs just flawless..Kudo's to Scud for all of his Fine work!  Thanks All..I'm trying to learn as much as I can from the forum with out being too much of a PITA...lots for me to learn.!!

Welcome Kindoy. Very nice couple of bikes you've acquired. Welcome to the Guzzi adventure. Can't wait for some sunshine photos of those true beauties.

Great garage photo. I miss the greenie sometimes, but I'm glad you are enjoying it.

BTW - you sent me a PM about the pipes. I honestly can't remember what was on there. Post up some pics and we can help you identify the pipes.

Thank you all..I'm Waiting for a nice un-cloudy day to pull them out and try to get some better Pics..the Bay area has been a little cool and  quite cloudy the past couple weeks!  I just sit in the shop with a scotch detailing and drooling over them.....

Not a cloud in the sky up in the mountains today. Calm and warm. Should have been in the basement fixing the Greenie, but no. Not today.

I love the greenie..I swear that bike has a personality of its own...everytime I start looking at my other bikes it draws me back.....I've been changing a few more fasteners..just little ones that had a little tarnish with age ..and at some point here I'm going to service the steering head bearings like you recommended Scud..but other wise I am not changing a thing..I did all the fluids, gear oils, motor oils, etc..and used the paint you recommended in your blog to clean up and refinish the Pan ( matched perfectly imo,) and I tried 4 different types of Rizoma mirrors on her that I had here..but every time I   went right back to these chrome Napoleon's you put on......they just seem to suit the look of this bike..they will stay now.

Welcome! The bikes look great and a great backstory, too. That’s so cool that the Guzzi muse found you while in Lake Como / Mandello Del Lario! This place will totally enable your Guzzi-love. :mg: 

More pics, please. Tell us about the Greenie’s exhaust. Chrome and green look great.

While the subject of exhaust is "on the thread" , which side of the footpeg bracket does your (and everyone else) does your exhaust slip-on mount to ?
