Hi all,
Thought I might introduce myself.
My name is Michael Medveczky and I'm working for Pete Roper at Mota Moda. I've been spinning spanners on the Guzzi's for a few months now and have enjoyed every minute. I come from a mechanical background as a car mechanic and find the engineering amazing. There is a model out there for all tastes.
Pete has recently assisted me to obtain a 2010 SE GRiSO that lacked the plastics. We have used black plastics to create a unique black on black GRiSO. We have rollerised it thankfully. I will post a pic when I can.
I hope that I can assist you all with the knowledge I have gained from my time on the spanners.
Already, I am certain that if you have flat tappets you are riding a time bomb, do not ride it until it is rollerised.
Michael.

I see you have a trigger finger, with a 40 minute time lapse.
Welcome!

I am sorry about the echo guys. I will try not to do that again. Thanks for the support, there's such a lot to learn and lucky to be working with such a knowledgeable and passionate Guzzi guru. I hope to learn from everyone I can on here too.
I don't think he told me the measurements waterbottle.

You wouldn't get much anyway, unfortunately. I tried already. Don't you sell yourself short either.

Thanks Steak. Hope to add some randomness, which can be a specialty of mine. Love working on all the Guzzi's in all their forms but even the V7 customer I had today had his breath taken away by the pair of black grisos that are residing in the workshop at the moment. They certainly do it for me.

Hey Mike, Pete away right? And there are two Grisos in the shed right? Did he perchance leave the keys? I mean you would not want the batteries to go flat!

I wish, Converted Duc.

Thanks Hacky,
As for the FB page, I thought it might be nice for people to see what we see. The Guzzi is quite a remarkable breed and there is quite a diversity in the models.

Michael
