    Looks great! Are the Bitwell grips thicker than the stock grips? I’m looking to replace my stock grips with larger O.D. grips. Thanks.

    They are slightly bigger than stock. I didn't like the stock ones at all. I've used Biltwell grips on a number of different bikes. Really like them. If you are looking for bigger diameter grips go with Biltwell Recoil. Have them on my Triumph and they are great.

    Hi everyone. New Guzzi V7 owner and guzzitech member here.

    I purchased my first real motorcycle 4 weeks ago, a 2011 V7 Classic (2TB) with 8000 miles on the clock. I'm absolutely in love with the bike, and I've put over 2k miles on it already, we've had amazing weather here in the UK since I bought it. PO put some reverse cone megaphone mufflers on it and it sounds absolutely amazing, the best sounding bike I've ever heard for sure.

    Just Picked up my brand new 2016 V7 ll Special today. I shot this on a 120 km ride through the foothills of the Canadian Rockies.
    The bike feels light and nimble compared to the cruisers I've had in the past. Planning on clubman bars new mirrors and tank pads to bring out the café racer look. Purchased July 10/18 in Calgary, Canada VIN ZGULWUB13GM200220

    The amber headlight is a very nice touch, I'd like to know more about what you did there..
