Me and My Guzzi
2010 Moto Guzzi V-7 Cafe
When I decided to start riding my husband asked me to take the Motorcycle Safety Foundation course I said sure and then he told me he would take it with me. I thought what a great guy he's been riding for over 40 years and he's willing to take a beginner course with me, it was a great way to spend a weekend I learned a lot. I have now owned 4 motorcycles and each bike has been a lot of fun but I love my Moto Guzzi it's a v-7 CAFE 2010. My husband took me to the dealer to check out the new V-7 classic, I walked in the door and fell in love with the Cafe instead, I bought it that day. I have always loved the cafe style, this bike is great in the twisties and at 5'2" I can reach the ground with both feet. Having a 27" inseam it's hard to find a bike I like that I also can feel comfortable on. I had a Triumph Bonneville and loved it but was on tip toe whenever I stopped. With my Guzzi, I feel confident, I spend a lot of time riding alone so confidence is a really good thing. Well I ride the Blue Ridge Parkway all the time it's a nice ride no matter what direction I head and I always have a great time taking pictures and meeting people. It's amazing the looks you get just being a woman but for me when the helmet comes off and they see white hair it's fun to watch their expression change to shock.
