I advise you fellow Guzzi-philes to take a read of Triumph review. I find the situation interesting that the Guzzi is cited several times as somewhat of a benchmark to which the Triumph is judged and not always in a positive way for the Triumph.
Been a long time since that kind of thing happened.
Really interested in reading the Stelvio review, but I can't see it anywhere in the July 2012 issue of the magazine. I'm REALLY leaning towards a Stelvio purchase, but like many have some reservations about service, parts and long term reliability. Not really different than any other 2 wheeled unit, just such a limited number on the road (which is a very good thing in my opinion). I have a dealer an hour away........and 1 in stock......
