Thanks Leaf! Excellent review and write-up. Thanks for taking the time to put your thoughts down.
I owned an '07 BMW GS and your comments of that bike are spot on. I also owned a Guzzi Norge and rode the '09 Stelvio several times, and your description of the "Guzzi experience" (easy maintenance, "Italian Harley" as I've heard it called vibes, chug-chug-chug motor, and sadly poor dealer network) is also spot on. Well done.
If Piaggio Group fixes the dealer network issue here in the US, I think we'll see a resurgence of all of their marques here, because their products are no longer an excuse not to buy one.
