Welcome.

B11's are grand machines; I should have bought my brother's when he tired of it ... tho, at least, he did buy another Guzzi. cheers

And, while I am a bit stooopid about red, the gray looks super.

I especially like that mod to your side stand. Wink

I was in France a year ago this week. Miss it; must return.

Welcome Vince!

The 1100 Breva is the first CARC bike I ever rode. I was given a test ride by Alis Agostini while visiting Mandello before the Breva and the GRiSO made landfall here in the USA. It was a delightful ride along the shores of Lago di Como.

But my eyes were always on the GRiSO, I first saw one in person the next day on a MG Factory tour and I was lost forever...

Vince,
In your pics it appears your bike has ABS. Did you retrofit it? I’ve never seen a Breva with ABS.

Norge yes, the others no. Your 1200 Sport doesn't have ABS, surely?

Mine doesn't but it was an option. Indeed I have seen it ob another Sport and a Breva - though neither are really common, but they do exist. Same system for all. A giveaway is round disks on the front instead of wave disks.

Hi,

Breva 1100's ABS was a 600 euros (996 AUD or $744) option in 2006.

Well, there’s something I learned today. I’ve seen quite a few Brevas and Sports here in the US, but not a one with ABS. Funny the factory found a spot for it on these earlier models, but not GRiSO. scratch

No, because there is nowhere to put the bloody pump!

Yes, I know people have now done it and pumps nowadays are a lot smaller and easier to mount but really, finding somewhere to put an ABS pump on a GRiSO is a fucking nightmare and requires yards of piping.
