I just finished reading a comparison test in Motorcyclist, and they didn't like the V7 at all. They said the fuel injection is poor, the clutch is grabby, the footpegs are too far forward, etc... They really didn't say anything nice about it at all. For that matter, the liked the HD 883 Iron better (100 pounds heavier, no suspension, poor brakes,.......?)I can see why they would like the Bonneville so much, but I was surprised how little they liked the Guzzi.
I'm not sure how seriously to take that test, it's really not my favourite motorcycle magazine.
If you get far enough away, you'll be on your way home.
Piss off, I'm in my Happy place.
