I keep writing these and they never take.
Synopsis.
I have a bike.
I have had others.
I have belonged to various forums. Some good.
Some really, really bad.
I think this might be one of those latter ones since my posts never appear.
I give up.

This is a good forum. Maybe you are just an inept twit. ;)

In fact I've responded to your other introductory post. You're in CA, so you can't blame this on fascist regime censorship.

Now if your talking about bad forums you must be talking about Motoguzzi.
There are some real wankers on guzzi forums.
I know I own a guzzi as well as the gsxs and I don’t go on guzzi forums anymore.
As for this forum it’s good and at least some can take a joke even if some haven’t got the right colour.:D

I was once a Member (probably still am on file) on a UK VFR Owners Group.
After a while I realised that the Membership was a small local group of riding Old Aged Mates around London area, and I rarely got a reply to anything posted, unless you insulted them.

We have a UK Member here who was on there too, and the many warning threats of de-listing him when he dared to sneakingly advertise his VFR 1200 & parts for sale (so he buy the GSX-S1000).
Only paid up sponsors can sell on that site and he like I weren't, so we are all lucky here to advertise and load up pictures freely.

Like me, he used the same Member name there and here, and will have a good laugh now over it if he still reads the posts as he hasn't been active for a while now.

Admin said I looked like spam.
On yesterday's ride, my GSXS got a flat on its new rear tire.
And now you remind me that I'm an inept twit.
I think I'm going to cry.
I also punctured my rear tire shortly after buying the bike new from dealer, ruined the tire. Slapped on a 190/55 Roadsmart 3, been smilin' ever since.

Sorry man. All in jest. It really does suck to get a puncture in a new tire. I hope you don't need to replace it.
Can we still be friends?

:D

If your bike is new, and has the Suzuki OEM Dunlop D214's, your only a few thousand miles/kilometres away from replacement anyway, LEAVEITSTOCK excepted of course.
The nail in a D214 is a blessing if it's in the front as that wear's first quite quickly and your better off with a modern tyre.
If you have to replace a rear, many here recommend the 55 profile if you want a faster turn in. The 55 is now quite a common size over the older 50 on a few bikes today.
I think you could get a softer vertical ride with the 55, as higher profile tyres generally are better for comfort on choppy road surfaces.

Welcome and hope you enjoy your new ride! Think you will enjoy this forum. And I feel your pain with the tire! And it does always happen with a new tire! Mine had 500 miles on it when it got skewered!:(

I owned a Guzzi once. But I cannot remember whether or not I liked the forum. I did not like the bike. Even my Italian friend said it was just an Italian Harley. Slow and noisy. But I thought it handled well enough for what it was. It was a weird model. Can't even remember the designation, T-something, maybe T5, 850.
Cured me of European bikes.

I dried my eyes and have forgotten everything, even the tire string plug.

I did order a 55! But it is a 180 and a Shinko Raven. So the twit suspicions will probably continue.
