Gorgeous, elegant machine. Great choice. So jealous.

Excellent choice of machine. Went on a ride out around Derbyshire today with some friends, I was on my Griso 8V, seen here parked next to a friends fabulous MK1 Le Mans, whilst we were stopped for tea & bacon butties

Leading indicators that you are about to have some great tacos:

  • You just had a brisk 100-mile ride.
  • There are more Spanish than English words on the signs.
  • The picture on the sign is of a pile of raw meat.
  • Carniceria is one of the words.
  • Panaderia is one of the words.
  • You have to walk under an arch to get in. 
  • Wrought-iron is featured (in this case a wrought-iron arch, so bonus points).
  • The wood chairs are all painted different colors.
  • An old man wearing farm-work clothes and a straw hat is by himself, reading the newspaper on the patio.
  • There is a dirty, beat-to-hell old Ford truck in the parking lot (this was true when I parked, but sadly replaced by a Hummer by the time I sat down with my tacos.)
  • There are more than three flavors of Jarritos in the fridge.

And proof:

Two el pastor, one carne asada. Two fresh corn tortillas per taco. With onion, cilantro, pico de gallo, guacamole, hot sauce and lime. The real deal.

Make no mistake, the "RedFrame" V11 Sport was/is a real "sporting" Guzzi. So-much-so, that Moto Guzzi very quickly lengthened and braced the frame, offered a fairing, with a wider rear rim/bigger tire, changed the forks, and offered "handlebars" (over the clip-ons).

We  > RedFrameTrash < are just lucky to land here and soak up the love.

From my stint in the saddle of my own V11 Sport, I must say it offers it's own unique blend of Ducati soul, Harley torque, and airhead BMW indefatigable drivetrain.

... and yes, it really is "sporting", but somewhere between a full on sportbike, and a proper large touring bike. I'd say that the V11 series are like the BMW GS-series. A proper GT machine. Comfy, torquey, long-legged, and they just serve up lazy, drama-free power.

Just marvelous.
