Tales from the Cul De Sac - Guzzi Edition

Recommended Posts

So my buddy Mike has been filming a series of interviews at his Cul De Sac. It's a way to socially distance and still get a motorcycle fix during this wee pandemic. It's mostly British bikes because, well, that's what his channel is about but that doesn't mean there can't be some diversity. Some of his viewers have been clamoring for some Guzzis so I rounded up my friend Terry and gave them a double dose.

The channel is at http://themightygarage.com and if you like great motorcycle videos then consider subscribing. New videos are released at least once a week and this time of year even more often.

I figure I wouldn’t get much push back with that comment. :D

I stumbled upon this channel when I was fantasizing about a Vincent Rapide.  I enjoy the content.

I'm sure it was appreciated by all that you were flying the flag,,, what can I say, we're a bashful shy bunch,lol.

I did want to ask you though, as you rumbled up in the video, were the DBK's in or out of those Mistral pipes?

It sounded very sweet, nice low rumble.

Cool vid. Kinda reminded me of a Steve Irwin clip. I was waiting for the narrator to jump out from the camera and wrestle one of you. Guzzis in the wild.

I didn't know they came with DBKs. How can you tell?

Mike is a scrappy lad, I'm sure he could have taken us both on!

Cool video!  Good to see some other Guzzis in Oregon!  I've only seen 1 or 2 around Bend.  I also need to check out the FB group.

I think they all come with DBK's now, some of the older pipes may not have them?

Mistral exhausts are new to me, but the ones I recently bought have a DBK held in with a single allen head fastening.

I haven't tried the set on my V11 yet, but when I tried different fuel maps on my CalVin, I had to put the DBK's in to improve low speed running.

On my CalVin, without the DBK's it seemed to loose the nice low rumble and the sound got a bit sharper than I like, that's why I was curious how your pipes were set up, your bike has that nice low rumbly thunder mg sound that I'm looking for.

I wanted to, but I got distracted by a call from a pesky client while watching the video. Only had time to click the Like button.
So: Thanks for the video, and even more for mentioning this site. Seeing the v11lemans.com logo slide in made my week :sun:
