Smile Moto Guzzi VR7 No. 181 is home

MH,

Whoops title should be V7R, sorry...

What a sweet ride! If not for the extreme heat I would have kept going down 99.

MPH made a very smooth delivery! I think I love this bike already. She cruises very nice at 80 and is flickable in the curves.
After the tires scrub in I am going to find the braking limits and try some deep curves. The engine right torque is interesting.

Neutral is a bit dodgy, but I bet as the engine breaks in it will be less reluctant.

Definitely need the Arrows though. Maybe at the 600 mile.

No. 181 has a happy home!

Tomorrow will be a run to Brazos Bend Park and beyond.

Pictures sometime tomorrow...my it is a pretty bike!

:h appy3:

ciao baby,
Lucydad

Brazos Bend park has some nice curves but too much traffic. Really relaxing just cruising around in there though during fall.

j_e_hurst and I rode into the entrance, one day, saw the ranger station type check in building, and just turned around. Didn't figure that they would let bikes in. Especially noisy ones!

Lol...hey I got home around 3 pm and wrung out from heat and sweat. Then I had to talk to the women folk and they said we are going to see Batman and eat dinner and I just got home. My daughter is going to take some really good pictures sometime tomorrow. Ok, then, how do I post them? Is there some magic?

Ride first tomorrow though.

Patience.
