They've got this thing called the United States Post Office.
I've been told they can deliver almost anything in just a few days. And straight to your door.
Seriously, MPH and MI and Harper's and others will put parts in the mail same day and they'll be at your doorstep in a few days.
Guzzi has a pretty well developed dealer network, despite not having one on every street corner.
Personally, I usually order my parts from MPH in Houston. They stock just about everything I ever need, and I get my package in 2-days.
Not knocking your choice of the Bonneville. Nice bikes. Just questioning your reasoning. (and giving you a hard time, but all in fun).
