I'm trying to decide between the Stone and a Bonneville.
i went and looked at a stone. it seemed very "small" it was skinny, short (compared to the bmw r80 i replaced). but, its a damn beautiful bike. i probably would have bought it, but they did not have one they could sell me. Also, the moto guzzi dealer network is spread very thin not a whole bunch of dealers able to support it.

i went with a new bonneville for this reason. there are 6 dealers closer to me than the closest guzzi dealer. it also has 20hp on the guzzi. i think i made a good choice FOR ME. though i like the guzzi shaft drive better than the bonny's chain, and the guzzi is a damn beautiful ride.
