I'll be very jealous if you are getting a White Lightning cheap, especially the pearl white color with blue frames. They only made the S1W for '98. Post a pic if you get it!

Moto Guzzi sold that bike 20 years ago, but it wasn't a big seller. Maybe they were 20 years too early?

Did you have to change the oil a few times on this trip? I thought the oil change interval on the HD200 is short, like around 1000 miles.
