I love the sound of a Moto Guzzi. It sounds like a nice combination of a V-Twin and a Parallel Twin.

It's a beautiful sound, not sure how Moto Guzzi got it that right but someone did. Under 4k it's more V-Twin sound and over 4k it's like a deep sportbike sound. The V7 I'm finding is really like two bikes in one. You can ride it between 2,800 rpm and 4,000 rpm and it's more like a boulevard cruiser in character. Above that in the 4000-8000rpm range it reminds me a lot of a sportbike in charater as the sound wants you to keep going harder and faster and it's very rewarding pushed to the max.

Can't wait to get the new exhausts installed when they arrive. (anytime now I am hoping).

Then you'll have to visit a local Moto Guzzi dealer and for the fun of it! Take out a V7 (unless it's really bad weather where you are right now but I wouldn't think so being in Georgia). Moto Guzzi is having the "Try a V7 Stone" test rides for free at all the dealers. :D
